  1. So, having used Marine 16, occasionally, will there now be a 'bubble' of water at the bottom of the tank, just as one might expect if no additive had been used, but my water is free of bugs?

    Oh dear

    A pair of lads on motorised bikes just whizzed past, going too fast to read that sign, I considered using a 'stinger', but decided against it,
  3. I decided to empty my Thetford Excellence just as I was leaving the facilitie, in fact while waiting for lock to fill, so in a rush, guess what happened next? There is a tiny black hole on the upper surface ........... Nothing is going to spoil my day of departure, however, so a spare toilet roll and some sanitiser was brought in to action. There is no spares kit for this otherwise superloo, so I think silicon spray is required. By the way, did the person who designed elsan installs decide to make them so the water tap is inaccessible to the cassette? I have to carry a large jug if I want to give the thing a good swill...... User report on Thetford Excellence: After eighteen months of regular use with standard toilet tissue, thetford blue and pink, nothing has fallen off except the toilet roll holder, which is a triviality. Occasional leakage en route to elsan, see above. Lid is soft plastic which scratches easily. Large capacity, so quite heavy. Large capacity, so can last one person a week, or more if one makes use of alternative facilities. No user servicing kit, so I anticipate it will end in landfill or be recycled.

  9. So what are you saying,? I kep tanks full as possible in winter, and add stuff if in doubt. I
  10. As above, the idea of cheap living in London is not sustainable, best to rent a room and save up another £15K, I may be wrong, but I wonder if you can get a job somewhere else, and live in a conventional way.
  11. I don't get much as boat is warm , and the glazing seems to be plastic or acryllic
  12. Sorry, the liners are inside, I'm not expecting water ingress. Do the liners go from cabin back to the window? I was thinking something about an inch deep.
  13. Is there some reason you prefer to use pm s, this is a forum for sharing news and views?
  14. Thanks, but I want to add value, might try the dog bowl in the loo, but as it happens, I don't have a tool shed available, so would end up paying for the work to be done, so probably go for oak trim, Also portholes are larger than any dog bowls I have seen recently Cat bowl will do OK to prevent rain going down flue when chimney is removed. Tx
  15. I have painted all the rough ply lining which makes it quite light, bright and spacious, the oak trim plus solid oak skirting, make it look quite smart, a lot of hand work, yes it's not your traditional cabin interior, to do that, I would have had to rip out the interior and start again. I am confident it has made it a much more attractive proposition, anyway, I'm a year or two away from selling, but want to make sure any extras will be worthwhile, the portholes don't all line up with the ply panels, so I have to work around that problem. Prices seem to be spiralling day by day, for no particular reason, but it does encourage me to continue the upgrade, if prices were falling, it would have the reverse effect.
