    Thank you everyone, I now have a few options I can explore without getting myself in trouble with the law. BTW this retailer https://www.mobilesignalboosters.co.uk/?gclid=CjwKCAiA66_xBRBhEiwAhrMuLThdBZ0ki3_MukFipmzp5vZTkbwgrDw1J0E1FkGQz7qU9uUXEwRgrxoCuxsQAvD_BwE does not mention that it is illegal for a booster on a boat in fact helps you choose the best type for a boat. Nearly got myself in hot water but the people here put me on the right track.

    I did not realise that a phone sim would work in a 4G router I had assumed you needed a data only sim. Now that is interesting.

    It seems mobile phone signal boosters are illegal not the type of equipment you have

    My Idea for a mobile phone booster is a non starter as I am informed it is illegal even though a NB is almost a Faraday cage. I guess the law is really for wooden and GRP boats as its OK in a car or truck. We are not continuous cruisers and don't want to sign up to MiFi with a contract. Is there any legal way of getting an improved mobile signal within a NB so as to use our data allowance?
  5. Oh dear, how is this breaking the law?
  6. We are not continuous cruisers so don't want to sign up to a MiFi contract and invest in that type of equipment, but would like to improve the mobile signal within the NB and use the data allowance on our phones. We are considering the one off investment in a mobile signal booster. Has anybody else done this? Any recommendations of which type of equipment? https://www.mobilesignalboosters.co.uk/product/mobile-booster-4g-lte-300-sqm?gclid=CjwKCAiA66_xBRBhEiwAhrMuLdQGsMlXEw_2Y8rTf-nhNA6T2w5cpcP7wCGYwraLTdDo0uBryhrtmRoC-RMQAvD_BwE

    Heating

    Many thanks for your answers, I now understand.

    Heating

    We have just bought our second hand nb and everything seems fine. We are a bit confused about the radiator heating. The setup seems standard. 2coil calorifier ( engine and webasto). Both webasto and engine produce lashings of hot water but only the webasto heats the radiators. Should the engine heat the radiators by convection from the calorifier as there is no separate circulation pump or do we need to operate the webasto and use its pump and rely on it throttling back when the engine is running. I have checked there seem to no valves shut etc. Thanks from a newbie!

    Low profile vents

    I wondered why most boats these days have mushroom vents.......... So its a traditional/fashion thing. Even if they are infra dig they will be hidden under my solar panels and solar panels are hardly traditional but they are practical. Now I need to go a feed the horse thats pulling my boat.
  10. Are low profile vents BSS compliant? I am thinking of fitting a couple of these where I am going to fit solar panels, so the can lie flatter. https://www.midlandchandlers.co.uk/products/vent-mc-tannoy-9-s-s-13509-av-112
  11. We have a lot of canals to explore besides. I have been told you be able to do the Calder and Hebble by going diagonally in the locks?
  12. I don't think I am that bothered. If the survey hadn't turned it up, it would have been 'ignorance is bliss'. However it seems odd that one of the main criteria on which a boat is judged whether it is when its for sale, marina/CRT fees, blacking etc should be so vague. I just wondered if this is usual.
