  1. Great thanks guys... I think we were over complicating it. We thought what you are calling the shower pump was a whale gulper which we have already.
  2. When you say domestic.. Are you talking about a 240v? We were thinking there must be a standard 12v one?
  3. Hi all... We're just about to install our shower and we wondered which pump you would recommend to give the required shower pressure? Tia. Frances
  4. Thanks for all the info.... You can go round and round eh? I think after a lot of deliberation and conflicting advice... I am going to go with one of the recommended boat primers.... Dulux Trade under/top coat (I need 7 colours... And their range is brilliant, the colour theme of my boat is Indian summer.... You won't be able to miss it. Also I need a specific pink... And I know from being a ceramic sculptor.. That it is almost impossible to mix pink correctly ) and I'll use the oil you advised. Look out for me next year on the cut with your sunglasses on!
  5. I've just looked up the Teamac... And it looks good and the price is reasonable too... But.. Like all the other specifically boat paints it doesn't have a huge range of colours.... I'm very fussy about my colours... I'm in the business of colour.
  6. Thank you.. I was going to use owatrol but I'll look up this one too
  7. Argh... Another paint company in the mix.... I'll have to continue looking and reading. I do want a good paint job... But pristine I'm not worried about.. I would pay if I wanted that. I'll be painting designs all over it anyway.... Decisions decisions
  8. Thank you Daniel... Thats exactly what I was looking for... And a good tip about the metalshield. I think I will probably go for another recommended primer to use with the dulux under/top coat. Maybe I'll try the two part next time if I get a chance to grit blast then... I can't do it this time as I'm in a boat yard without those facilities. I know the dulux Weathershield will be OK as many boaters seem to be really pleased with it... But you're the first person who has experience with the metalshield.
  9. Chaps ..... In reply to some of the comment's ; I have to take off the coat of primer which is on there.. As primer is porous... But there is no other paint on there. I'm not using Dulux to do a cheap job.... There are many boaters who think it is as good as the expensive boat paint... And from my point of view a much better range of colours as I'm not a tradionalist. Plus... I have a Brewers near me who can mix the colours as and when I want. I want to do the best job possible which is why I was thinking of two part... However it sounds trickier than some of the other, I am sure, very good primers... Including dulux metalshield probably.... So thanks for your opinions....especially those with experience
  10. Morning.... I'm thinking of using Dulux Trade undercoat and top coat to paint boat. I have to take off holding coat of primer which has been on the boat for a while... So as I'm going back to bare metal I'm thinking of using a two part primer which I can get at trade. So I'd be really interested in anybodies experience of this... Applying it and advatages/disadvantages.... Thanks all!

  12. Thank you Mark! I'm just discovering how nice it is.... I think we'll hire a boat out for a few days while we're waiting for ours... And check it out properly
  13. Ok.. Well I'll arrange what I need to do come the time. Got to finish building it first! As to volunteering.... It's all still part of the only network this part of the SE has so that's where we want to offer our time. Long project though it undoubtedly is
  14. Well cheesy joke aside.. I wouldn't mind knowing?
