  1. Looks like the previous owner was a bit of a bodger. Time for someone more competent!
  2. Still available, Just ordered it for £5 ?
  3. I don’t mind the smell of Blue TBH. It’s not that strong and gotta be better than sh*t!!
  4. Last week Another boater gave me this as a tip to help stop my mooring silting up. I’d no idea it’s against the license terms (perhaps I should read what I’ve singed!).
  5. This! I deliberately use 95ah batteries as 3 of them fit in a box which only held 2 x 110s.
  6. Yep. My wife. I tell her I love her. She says “I love U2”. I say “Never been that much of a fan of Bono, and the Edge is overrated”. Only been going for 15 years so far tho...

    Ignore

    Moderators? Can someone remove this empty thread?
  8. Yep. Virgin uses EE which is generally rated as having the best 4G coverage. I’ve been using EE for a couple of years now. Though I believe many boaters have taken up the 3 unlimited data deal and are pleased with it. The point for me is that EE don’t currently do unlimited data so that’s why we have gone to Virgin. My Buzzard 2 car WiFi 12v cig lighter device works with both EE and now on the Virgin unlimited deal. Though I’m lucky I wired the boat’s 12v cig sockets above the gunnels next to windows from what Tony has said! Other options are available. But as of now only the 2 unlimited data deals. I need unlimited data as we stream all our telly (really could not be ars*d with putting up the aerial pole and retuning unless absolutely necessary). Just letting you know what works for us FYI. Cheers, Jak.
  9. Good point Tony. My cig lighter socket sits at the bow by a window and works well.
  10. I bought the device (a Buzzard 2 car WiFi dongle) on ebay and then ordered the SIM on Virgin's website. The device is badged as for EE but it works for Virgin too. As I understand it they use the same network.
  11. This works well for us, handy as it plugs straight into a handy 12v "cigar lighter" socket on the boat or car. Also now (from today) with unlimited 4G data courtesy of Virgin mobile!!

    Dreaming, ?

    “Most” people aren’t weekly paid anymore so unlikely to spend all their left over cash on lottery tickets every week. I’d go as far as to say I don’t know anyone who does this. I buy one every couple of months when I fancy being a Millionaire. Not worked yet ?
  13. We've had mostly positive experiences of them over 2 years boating so it can't be all bad.

    Dreaming, ?

    And me. After a couple of years NB ownership I'd love to go over to Crick this year and talk about commissioning a new build. But the waterways are still ready to be explored in a slightly tatty 1980s 48ft trad.

    Too much solar?

    Yup, it works well enough for what we need. I originally started the thread to see if there was a rule of thumb for solar (W) to battery’s (ah). It’s been a very interesting thread, but the answer to my simplistic question seems to be a No.
