  4. Yes true. I forgot, there are in fact two fans on the above oven. As soon as you start the burner, one is on all the time out of sight. That's likely the one doing the cooling of the controls etc.. The right hand knob in the photo controls the cooking fan which can be turned off. So, the above oven DOES require a dinky amount of mains. Sorry
  5. We have one of these (but in black). Gas oven and gas grill. Igniter, like all of them is mains as is the fan. (Negligible power requirement). if you don't have mains (and don't want mains), just light with a wand and ignore the fan. Timer is mechanical.
  6. Yikes! Your boat sounds like the Space Shuttle. Impressive. Glad I liveaboard, it's a lot simpler
  7. I see. Are they also oil-filled? What Wattage?
  8. I've used oil-filled radiators on Consort for quite a few years whilst the boat was undergoing internal re-fit AND whilst living aboard. Lekky bill is high but c'est la vie. I have a largish one near the front of the boat and a dinky one (Dunelm) with its own thermostat near the engine room/bathroom. Both are permanently on along with the immersion. Temp in the boat remains at 18-20C. Now installing regular rads with a domestic style electric Flow Boiler. We're fortunate as our mooring has full house-style electricity supply along with smart meter. The only limitation is the boat's isolation transformer which is 7KW. Oil-filled radiators are pretty reliable BUT as Tony says, can't be sure what the insurer would say 🙄If anyone has had a green light from their insurers for Oil-filled radiators, please let us all know Stephen (Not sure what a greenhouse heater looks like. Maybe post #33 answers my question)
  9. No it was definitely at Rickmansworth. Will try and find out more.
  10. As per the title. Someone told me that there was a boat fire near Batchworth lock, Rickmansworth yesterday afternoon. My source said pet dogs died in the fire. Anyone know anything about it?
  11. Yep! Stainless Steel aint cheap but it does look the part
  12. I used this chappie on Consort. Dutch made and not cheap. WhisperPower. It's 32A but they also make a 16A version
  13. Watched it last night and there was an aerial shot at Stone as it passed Roger Fullers yard (birthplace of our boat Consort).
  14. Terry Darlington's book "Narrow Dog to Carcassonne" highlights a lot of good stuff and is also a fun read.
  15. We re-did Consort using IKEA including integrating the washer, fridge and freezer. We also reduced the leg height slightly so they slotted under the gunwale . Not flimsy at all. It's all about taking your time and assembling according to their idiot guides (like all flat-packs) & securing them to each other and the back wall. We're very happy with them
