  1. If it helps, my floor to under edge on gunwale is 930mm, the height of the rear frame is 790mm (max) the rear part of the cushion (or matteress) extends well above this
  2. Got ours from here https://www.sofabedbarn.co.uk/18-narrowboat-seating Need to assemble it onboard but easy enough. The Cantebury is very comfortable to sleep on and is plenty long enough (I'm 5' 11").
  3. Is one better than the other? I'm guessing that a full rotation is probably better ...
  4. Thanks. I already have a lot of DeWalt cordless gear so have been looking at this 18V XR Brushless 125mm Dual Action Polisher - Bare Unit - DCM848N-XJ | DEWALT United Kingdom no idea how good it is, but all my other DeWalt stuff is very good. Trouble is, it is expensive at around £200.
  5. I have an angle grinder and it looks as though I can fit a hook and loop backingplate to it. Would it be sensible to use this with the appropriate polishing pads? I've never used a polisher before so thought I'd ask ... TIA Paul.
  6. Celotex (and Kinspan etc inc sprayfoam) is about twice as good an insulator at the same thickness.
  7. I use SquareSpace for my photography and blog about photography stuff (which badly needs updating - the blog that is). But it would seem an expensive way just to get a blog. It is easy to use though. Maybe have a look at Weebly as well as the others mentioned, Wix can be a bit difficult to get the hang of, but it is quite good (I don't like it but ... ).
  8. A bit of both I'd say. No doubt money is tighter for an awful lot of people just now. Last year on our narrowboat holiday my wife was always a littler nervous when we went out (virtually every night). Have to say that most of the pubs on the Warwickshire ring were very good, with good food and good beer! Hopefully many of the pubs will get enough use to stay open, we will be doing a lot of cruising this year!
  9. Yep, that was both what I feared and what I'd found, was rather hoping I'd missed something. Thanks Ian. We will be out cruising soon and I know there is much better signal only a few hundred yards either way. Currently In Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire. There is a narrow strip with the marina in the middle where all signals are poor, not sure why either as there are no hills so guess its just not worth putting masts in as it is quite rural.
  10. Is there a dual sim 4G router that aggregates the signal to provide improved data rates in rural areas? I've been googling but haven't found anything and it is very slow - my download here is 2.7mbs at best!! Currently on 3, but have looked at O2, Vodafone and EE coverage maps and they all paint the same picture. Even double the download rate would be workable (just). Currently use a Huawei B535 connected to an external Poynting aerial. TIA.
  11. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
