  1. Keep a landbase you will need it one day. Have fun . We went down the buy second hand first We sold it for the same as we bought it for as we decided we wanted an extra 10 ft. We also fitted it out ourselves.

  3. After having to leave our boat due to my husbands ill health I would definitely recommend buying a land base. There is no security of tenure with a mooring and you can be told to leave at anytime, no reason given. Why do you want boats? They are hard work with all effluent, rubbish, fuel and water having to be serviced regularly. Factor in muddy towpaths and dragging shopping along them. Electricity has to be carefully managed. Good luck
  4. You've still got to store them somewhere. At least with a pumpout you have a neatly built in tank
  5. Pump out every time. Carrying a heavy container out of the boat and to the nearest elsan every couple of days is not my idea of a non event. We lived onboard for 25 years with a pump out and never wanted to change.

  8. I'm so pleased we kept our house. We lived for 25years on our boat and then Hubby had a stroke. One day cruising, the next hospitalized. We sold the boat and house and have a very convenient bungalow. It's now 8 years on and I dread to think what life would have been like without that option. Hubby would have been trapped all this time inside a narrowboat stuck in a marina.

  11. I removed some from my friends rubber wood table with t-cut.
  12. We have many memories of them with antics with wrg. They always took the sabotage in good part.
  13. Equity release salespeople aren't the only people who try to hoodwink the elderly. Salespeople of equipment for the elderly and disabled are the same. Try buying a rise and fall chair. Most sellers haven't showrooms you can visit. They bring a chair and try to talk you into buying one. The price can alter during the visit.
  14. To kill the wildlife they profess to be so keen on.

  16. Your last paragraph is interesting as I believe it is completely incorrect. It seems to come as a complete surprise. that to many people. that there is no security of tenure and CRT should provide everything they require.
  17. Much better than the idiots insulting each other.
  18. Surely solar would run a 12v fridge without resorting to a generator
  19. Do you really need a generator? We CC'd for 25 years without one and we didn't have solar either. They are a pain

    DVCC

    I helped form wrgbc that affiliated to awcc to get round that problem.
  21. Viking hire boats were all tied up using centre lines at their hire base.

    An Horse

    When George Greener was chairman of BW he was very keen on getting horses back on towpaths.
  23. gas operated curling tongs work.
  24. The op doesn't mention if he has ever cruised a wide beam. Hiring a boat and travelling the waters he wants to live on would be a first step.
