  1. Very expensive looking too
  2. I've seen similar products by chilterntimber.co.uk which I thought may use for the cabinets but I think the doors may be above my pay grade 🤔
  3. I'm toying with the idea of having curved cabinets in the galley & whilst I'm quite happy making my own cabinets the doors are a bit beyond me.I know lots of people simply use domestic kitchen units and wondered if anyone has sourced good quality curved cabinet doors? My thinking is once I have the doors I'll make the cabinets to fit ( probably out of good quality marine ply) Hopefully to achieve something rather like this but with curved cabinets

    Turning Around

    Thank You for recommending this super little book. I've grown-up with boats all my life & can honestly say this book is one the best, easiest to understand, books on the subject I've read. Just gotto persuade my wife to read it now 😄

    Mooring halfway between York & Bristol

    It's for us to have a base half-way between them. I doubt they will visit us onboard but we can visit them once in a while give them a 'sunday-lunch' (and the obligatory handout 😁 ) If the house sells we shall be moving onboard full time. Then the plan is to CC andexplorer new areas. I grew up with boats and there are family owned moorings on the Great Ouse so I would love to re-visit the Middle-Levels and introduce my wife to the unique magic of that area.

    Mooring halfway between York & Bristol

    Been so long in Wales have forgotten what public transport is. I would guess the best bet would be to find secure cheap mooring, possibly a marina, (though not too fussed about electric), to use as a base whilst we have a chance to cruise around and check out the area. As already mentioned do not need residential moorings but security is important also parking. A convenient water point would be great, at present we have to do 4 locks to turn around.

    Mooring halfway between York & Bristol

    I'll be myself and my wife, we'll be using a car, our house at present is in West Wales which hopefully will be on the market. Our problem is not knowing the area.
  11. At present we have an offside mooring on the K&A which suits us aewe have 2 boys at Bristol Uni,however our youngest is starting at the University of York this year &, as out boat is booked in with Martin Kedian this June, we are considering giving up our mooring on the Kennet and finding new moorings roughly halfway between Bristol and York. We have not yet sold our bricks and mortar therefore do not require liveaboard moorings yet but are looking for any advice or recommendations that can be given.

    Unusual Issue

    You could try a dog a Thundershirt anxiety coat for your dog. i've never needed to try one for my dogs but i know of at least 3 occasions where do owners have had excellent results in very similar situations to yours.

    400amp megafuse

    Thanks guys, i sort of get it, I was only checking to tightness of the connections when I spotted it anyway so I'll leave it to get on with it's job which, hopefully will be never.
  15. I'm tidying up my wiring and have just realises that the short piece of 35mm2 wire from my battery bank to the isolator switch which incorporates a mega-fuse is rated at 400amp. Now surely if that ever were to blow the all of my wiring looms will be frazzled. What confuses me is this was fitted by a professional so what am I missing, I thought all fuses were to protect the wires therefore the fuses should be rated to protect the wires themselves so to my mind 35mm2 cable should be 150ampmax. 35mm2 cable runs from the isolator switch to the pos busbar. Hope this makes sense.😄
