  4. I was told this back in October (chandler in question blamed non-boaters, said even the refill deliveries were very irregular and kindly sold me one without a deposit anyway as apparently they had a couple of spare empties). Not sure if it was a localised issue at the time.

  10. I've got one of these on my semi trad, and it's definitely for drying clothes, not for navigation... (The advantage of an umbrella is it doesn't need windscreen wipers or to come down for bridge holes)
  11. They probably have a YouTube channel with "Last Minute Steering Saves Girl From Drowning". And a video clip with lots of talking and a girl falling off a boat on the other side of the canal and getting a bit wet
  12. I would think regardless of what Craig Allen's hull only survey terms say, most people here would agree that the OP should purchase a full survey for this boat.
  13. This is true, and it would be a good idea for @Tanmim H to ask whether Whilton is the owner of the boat or just acting as a broker when she visits them if they have not already told her. This is the relevant part of the terms I signed, FWIW. Note that there is provision for doing welding if needed I imagine if Whilton is not the owner of the boat it is still in their interests to persuade the current owner to fund the work if it is what they consider an "Insurable defect" (especially since they probably collect the fee for doing the work). And likewise if it just n
  14. The owner (in this case the marina) paid for the gearbox refurbishment, and a contractor working for them did the work. It was not BSS but was considered an "insurable defect" which is also mentioned in the Pre-purchase agreement. The surveyor said the gearbox was something he would expect them to fix (and that they would have looked at it when they bought it so wouldn't be surprised They also did some other basic non-BSS things like repacking the stern gland and fitting a new drive belt to the engine at no charge They were less keen on doing time-consuming non-critical stuff
  15. I bought a boat from Whilton's sister marina in the last few months (owned by them, so all the work was done at their cost). Different people, but same rules and budget. I got a new drive plate and a newly refurbished gearbox (completely different unit), neither of which are anything to do with BSS, The prepuchase contract (assuming identical to mine) says deposit is fully refundable if vendor won't remedy or reduce price to account for BSS or "insurable defects". "Insurable defects" isn't defined, but if it's roof needs replating to protect its structural integrity I think
