    Ash disposal

    Jen, at those prices, I see why you made your own tippy.

    Ash disposal

    As the animal (squirrels, swifts et al) burning season creeps in; what do boaters do with the ash produced? Is it okay to dump it in the cut, wind direction allowing? Will it help reduce lock leakage? Thoughts, facetious or otherwise, appreciated.

    How do calorifiers work?

    On our boat the water stays hot for 24 hrs, unless you draw it all off. It gets really hot which shows thet thermostats are doing their job. It takes about an hour to get a tankful. Best to have a navy shower.

    Liverpool Link

    It's worth a call in the Heatons Bridge Inn, just before Scarisbrick Marina. An un-modernised old inn with real ales and good food Wed to Sunday. Has offside visitor moorings and towpath side is safe.

    Camra AGM 21.04.18

    Didn't realise that CAMRA used AGMs. Do they have beer engines to charge them?

    And we must not let it! His was a truly heroic act beyond criticism.

    How much water should a macerator use

    No gory details, just basic toilet training!

    Take care, seller has a lot of negative feedback.

    The installation/user manual for the range is on the Thetford Marine website. After reading it, I now know how I've been misusing ours.

    Instantaneous water heater

    After a bit of reading around, the ruling seems to be that any new installation of instant water heaters have to be 'room-sealed'. But there seems to be confusion regarding the approval for use in boats. As such it appears that only the Morco ones are approved. Surely though if the unit is room sealed and fitted by a gas registered installer then it should pass the BSS. Mmmmm - perhaps there are soldered internal connections which might be a fail on the BSS.

    CRT survey

    I passed my 11+, but found these questions different! Went about 5 for most. Why not ask the right questions to get the right answers?

    If you like the boat and the price is right then it doesn't really matter. Negotiate your price and whatever you perceive to save, spend on getting the boat getting to how you want it to be.
