  1. I used a gas lighter in front of the fan (not scientific), the flame was markedly deflected by the fan up to about 1 foot away but nothing obvious beyond that. I’ve no idea if that makes much impact distributing heat or not. At the end of the day I’m either warm or cold, with or without the fan, and need to manage the stove accordingly.
  2. As #2 said, contact the water company direct and ask them if this is something they are doing. As you say, it’s easy to scam people. Just use the commonly available contact details and ask them to confirm it is legit.
  3. It mentions the sale of wet wood not the use of it. If that’s correct foraging is still ok, not that I do it. I also only use smokeless, never house coal.
  4. I’ve just switched this on half way through going into an ad break. There’s a text competition to win a 3 day boating break for 4 with £1000 to spend while you are there. Given it’s not your boat or equipment we are talking about what would you spend the £1000 on?

    Idiot question - would you need regular access to shore power to make use of this? If so how would you manage this cruising to Liverpool.
  6. A couple of ideas in this thread for 30ft Narrowboats. You could have a look at aintree boats site which shows their layouts for their smaller beetle boats for some ideas. How long is your boat and how do you intend to use it? Leisure or live aboard?

  9. I don’t hate cyclists per se, but cycle tyres carve up the towpath/mud/footpaths more than anything else does.
  10. Is there anything wrapped around the propeller?
  11. As you will see from our boat and the other pictures of the other boat, what’s lacking is storage. We have space under the hob area and under the seating but not much else inside. It’s okay for a week or two but I would struggle if living aboard. Also limited space for washing and drying clothes. Again okay for a short period but living onboard all the time would be difficult. It would be good to hear from other people who may have made it work or found that a larger boat was a necessity.
  12. Our boat picture doesn’t show any table. We’ve got a folding bistro table and chair that you can leave up, fold away, or use for a picnic. We tend to leave ours out all the time, opposite the hob area. We went for a more expensive brand as used in French bistros and it is nice to live with and hard wearing. We only use one chair as the other person can sit on the bench you can see in the photo.
