  1. Coal or wood stove, most boats have what is described as mutlifuel which means they are a compromise between pure coal burning or pure wood burning, not as efficient but a good option which allows burning of scavenged wood to supplement paid for and expensive coal. Some boats have diesel fueled stoves. I have no personal experience of them but those who have them like them as far as I know
  2. I think it's possible to get a sort of dealer plate which will allow you or someone to move an unlicensed boat to a dock or hard standing, I suggest speaking to CRT

  4. The shady oak was the pub a group (or at least the oldest looking member of our group) bought take out beer from when we were doing practice for our Duke of Edinburgh, I think we may have been 16 at the time, we got very very drunk 🥴

  6. Funnily enough I was in a bank queue recently and I overheard a discussion between a customer and a member of staff, something along the lines of, paraphrased... "Its a bit embarrassing but I've got a amount of old bank notes I need to exchange" " OK" says the member of bank staff "how much" "30,000" says the customer Very quickly the customer was removed into a private room, I swear this is true

  13. They are staff, unpaid staff but staff nonetheless and deserve proper supervision, if the organisation is unable to properly supervise them they shouldn't have them

  15. Oversight of any staff, whether paid or volunteer is a fundamental part of any organisation, how it's done depends on the organisation but as Jerra suggested, secret shopper type visits and direct oversight by the volunteer manager on routine visits should be a normal part of any volunteers week. Additional monitoring of the complaints system is often a useful way of flagging issues and if used correctly can often nip problems in the bud but as also suggested there will come a time where some volunteers are just not right for the organisation and they should be (kindly) shown the door. It comes down to supervision in the end, staff of any type need supervision, the problem in my opinion is good supervision is often lacking, it's a skill not everyone has and supervising volunteers has the added issue of balancing the quality of work by unpaid labour against the standards required by the organisation
