  1. How did you manage that then? You should have bought a license at the time you bought the boat which would have taken you up to the end of July, by my arithmetic.
  2. Ha, you should search back and read the threads where LG is laying into the estate agents failing to sell her flat in Scotland for 35% more than market value, and rejecting all advice on how to get it sold. I'm sure you can imagine! I gave up trying to help in the end.
  3. In actual fact I will, but I'm not going to focus as suggested on extinguishers to put out fires and leave it to blind faith that they will comply with the BSS rules. I needed to understand the BSS rules, which now I do. So thanks to all who responded.
  4. I think what Alan is getting at is "composting toilet" is a misnomer. They don't do any composting. You have to do the composting yourself after removing the, um, waste products from the supposed composting toilet. So a lot of us are probably wondering just how much you know about them. Are you fully up to speed on what it takes to own one? Or have you just been told they are a Good Idea so you decided to get one? Or something in between?
  5. For easy, trouble-free rural cruising its had to beat the Oxford canal. Also I really like the Coventry, not so much for scenery as for it being, just, well so interesting, and the boaters seem more committed to boating than the holidayers one gets a lot of on the Oxford. But for real unbeatable scenery, the pennine-crossing canals are what you need. Hard work and prone to stoppages I gather though. P.S. I keep misreading your username as "SarahSnails"!
  6. I'd say yes, but only just! Both options will render the boat totally and utterly un-useable.
  7. Is it? Surely having extinguishers to hand encourages people to stay inside the burning boat and try to put a fire out, whereas none would encourage people to just get out, in the opposite direction to where the fire is... (Just playing Devil's Advocate really.)
  8. E.G. the 'politicians apology'? "We're sorry you feel this way about the damage to your boat" Or a proper "Really sorry we caused this damage to your boat. Our cock-up..."
  9. Ok in that case I should rephrase my question, what specification and how many should I borrow to be certain of avoiding a BSS fail?! But more seriously, I've worked out now how to interpret the requirements, so thanks everyone!

  12. And there was me all ready to buy 1,000 litres, and all that website does is ask me to write to my MP!!
  13. Let's stay on topic please. As requested, I'm looking for extinguishers to pass a BSS inspection, not to put out a fire. What fire extinguishers will get my boat through the BSS please? I'm not gonna visit hundreds of branches if Lidl hoping to find stock of the ten quid units. Ebay doesn't have any complying with my search term 21A/144B. Mebbe Midland Chandlers then...
  14. Exactly. So I'm not looking for fire extinguishers that are expected to be used in anger, I'm seeking fire extinguishers that will get my boat through the BSS due in April.
  15. What is the current requirement please to pass a BSS, and more specifically as fire extinguisher prices seem to vary a lot, where does the Team suggest buying some? (Assuming mine are out of date or don't comply in some way or other, having had them more than a decade now and a BSS is looming!) Many thanks...

  21. I'd say it is the boat that went hacking past, too fast.
