    Spare Fuel...

    You can store red diesel for years no problem. We did on the holding. It's always best to keep the tank on the boat topped up, stops condensation problems. I always carry a couple of Jerry and full just in case.
  2. Apoligies if this has already been posted West Midlands canals to help heat hospitals
  3. Has anyone tried fitting secondary double glazing to portholes? I'm toying with the idea of using 12mm Glass "Look" Cast Acrylic Discs inside my fixed non-opening portholes.
  4. If you're worried about water pooling on the windowsill you can attach some acrylic glass using double sided Velcro masking the whole window off whilst the shower is in use . We had that set up in a sailboat worked really well.

  8. Well I have one, so far recharged 4 18 volt dewalt batteries, 2x 2ah & 2x 4ah. All appeared to charge faster than when using a 230v charger
  9. well spotted, I'm picking one up in the morning.
  10. Has anyone here got a DEWALT DCB119-XJ V XR IN-CAR MULTI-VOLTAGE BATTERY CHARGER. Most of my cordless equipment is DeWalt & I'm tempted to buy this 12v charger, I guess it'll take longer to recharge than a 240volt but they seem popular with builders etc. Any views before I part with my money?
  11. Do these 'Squatter' boats have to have BSS cert's,insurance and some form of licence ? & just don't want to pay mooring fees? or are they just living outside the Law?
  12. As in the title, I'm looking for a Thermostatic WALL Mounted bath/shower tap, any recommendations? I've seen This at £65 which looks like it'll do the job but if anyone can recommend one that they actually know works OK with the type of pressure we have onboard it will really be appreciated. It has to be wall mounted. Thanks.
  13. I wish to thank you for this thread, I'm shortly visiting the area and ,weather permitting, the dog and I shall attempt to walk the route.
  14. I know plenty of discussion has been had regarding the What3words app but just in case anyone's still in doubt From today Lincolnshire Police will be using an app to help them find people in an emergency more quickly.
  15. I have a pump similar to yours, the base of the pump clips off (for cleaning etc). On my boat there is a glass fiber 'box' directly under the stern gland and the bilge-pump Base is stuck down using Sikaflex, or similar. The pump should be wired directly to the battery using an appropriate fuse so it is always on. Hope this helps.
