  1. It has radioactive shelves, and something interesting with corks....
  2. Thanks Tracy, they do offer this but you have to have a home berth, which we wont have once we begin...
  3. Hi all Despite trying we've not managed to retire as yet and have other commitments stopping us spending more that a few weeks at a time on the boat, so the boat has been at Ventnor Marina for a few years now. We desperately want to expand our cruising and explore more waterways, but the issue of always returning to base cuts our time in half. We had an idea of ditching the home marina, and booking other marinas we can use temporarily as we move about the system (ignore the car aspect we can get others to help with that). I've read on here this could be problematic with marina space/availability? Does anyone else operate this way successfully or is it just stress inducing? Not keen to leave the boat on the cut whilst were not on it for weeks at a time.... anyone got nuggets of advice? all gratefully received! rob

  7. excellent, another one with Bats!
  8. second really quick question... when doing your engine its supposed to be warm... does the same apply to the PRM? cant see how this warms that much??
  9. I like Husbands Bosworth due to the Bats!
  10. As this now seems sorted can i hop in here?.... if changing the oil in the PRM 150 i know lots use pumps in the dipstick hole, is this purely due to accessibility of the sump plug or in case of problems with it and it leaking? doing mine shortly....

  12. I did this very recently on ours. The screw thread on our tank is 1/4" BSP, but not sure if there is a 'standard' ?
  13. Even taxing Welsh citizens staying up the road.... odd policy?
  14. I'm not aware of this - we have a 43 as well (good engines).... Beta themselves are very helpful if you call them?
