  4. As others have said how long is a piece of string ? Lets look at this from a slightly different angle and ask how you will feel in 2016. Then you will also be selling your truck presumably to buy your boat and follow your dream do you l have a figure in mind that you are going to ask for it. What will your sale price based on ? Your purchase price, today's market price for a similar truck, today's price less 2 years depreciation ? Are there a lot of trucks like yours or can it attract a premium premium price What will the market be like for second hand trucks be in 2016 If I made an offer 20% below your asking price would I be wasting my time or yours ? The good news what ever the answers are you have time on your side.to plan your budget. Go to brokers a look a boats that don't come into your budget as well' have a good look to see the differences £10k makes. chose a couple outside your budget and ask how the vendor would react if you were to offer xxx less GOOD LUCK
  5. When we first moved up here there was a family of them on the river below Bingley five rise C&RT must have moved them on
  6. Hi Tony Trust Noeline is feeling better . Have a look at http://www.yr.no/place/United_Kingdom/England/Audlem~2656793/ a website I have found very accurate All the best both John & Marian
  7. Sorry ours does not have a back boiler I have found this http://jhalfie.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/sweeping-villager-puffin-stove.html Which may be useful HTH John
  8. Mark the extremities on the towpath measure the distance between ??
  9. Must admit I thought mine was welded in place as well I cleared the top of the plate first but then realised that that the build up of sh1t had gone down the back and blocked up the airfow. The Villager website shows the baffle plate as a replaceable spare so it may not be welded in place
  10. Bump Just checked your stove has a baffle plate so my previous answer may be relevant John
  11. We had a similar problem with with a Squirrel stove that was building up concrete like deposits on the top of the baffle plate as a result of burning excel and similar brands. To such an extent that it was impossible to move the baffle plate. Further examination showed that there was no airflow behind and over the plate, It took over an hour release the plate and clear away the build up. Any sooting on the glass quickly burns off and there is now no build up of the concrete like residue
  12. I know I am new and don't own a boat yet Not sure if this was covered in any of the 16 pages because I didn't want to read all the banter, banter, blah, ? You could at least read the title of the thread boaters target boaters
  13. I'm sure the eminent member will reward the OP with a Yorkie Bar or two when they return from the Dales
