  1. And lead to a reduction in boat license fees with the money saved. 🤣🤣🤣
  2. Could be used as an excuse to close facilities, as they don't meet, or can't be upgraded to meet the national standard.

  6. That's too many knots if boating on the canals. You should know no more than 3.4759 knots, or you will be speeding. 😀
  7. Not under restoration, but isolated, excepting a tidal traverse, is the River Hull and Driffield Navigation. Two trip boats at Beverley. https://www.visiteastyorkshire.co.uk/whats-on/beverley-barge-and-rides-p1456481
  8. You are right, there are trip boats at Over Basin, though there doesn't appear to be a regular schedule. If you have a group, rather than just an individual wanting a trip, then best bet is to get in touch with the H&GCT. One nobody has mentioned yet, the Grantham Canal. http://www.granthamcanal.org/trip-boat22/
  9. Depending on where the boat is being moved from and to, it may pass through a lock, tunnel, or other feature that needs pre-booking with CaRT on their web site. No license, insurance, or BSS, no passage.

  15. If only Apple made a lace edged screen for the boat back cabin market.

  17. Converting beans in to Methane, with its high global warming potential? Not the environmentally friendly approach. With fossil fuel exhaust hot tub bubbles, you are getting extra use out of the CO2 in the bubbles before putting them in to the atmosphere

  19. Coolant loop from the engine to warm the tub. If you want bubbles, run the engine exhaust in to the hot tub! Luxury. 😀

  22. Pump noises do change over time. If you live on board, you get hyper attuned to the changes. I use the decreasing time between closing a tap and shut off to decide when the accumulator and/or expansion tank need reinflating. Other than that, I only check for leaks regularly. Unlike @MtB, I leave a dying pump in till it can no longer raise enough pressure to trigger the shut off switch, or is leaking, before replacing it. I've always meant to have a new one ready to go, but never been organised enough to actually arrange it. Some people even have a new pump already wired and plumbed in on a parallel route that can be swapped in seconds by flicking a switch and opening and closing a couple of valves. The water pump is one of the things that is important for life on board being closer to a house than to camping, so having a replacement on hand is a good idea, as they have a finite life*. *Except @blackrose, who has an immortal water pump, that originally belonged to Noah, who gave up living on board after only 40 days and 40 nights. 😀
  23. No photo and I've not tried this myself, but could be worth investigating the standing desk concept? Claimed to be better for posture and can mitigate the health problems that arise from being sendentary. Also potentially space saving, which would be great for a boat. Wall hang the screens, fold out, adjustable angle desk shelf for laptop and notpad, pens etc. At the end of the day, put away laptop and fold desk against wall, so the space can be regained. Maybe a bar stool for the occasional sit down, so sat at a similar height. Jen
