  3. They do come with the polystyrene in there for transit, it looks like its simply never been commisioned from day one lol. Good update, it shows you can never be sure of anything unless you have had, and installed yourself from new

  5. I have a drandson who is 6ft 7 in. Furthermore even though he is only a baby of 21 I am pleased to say he always refers to his height as such, and not in some foreign measurement equivalent . He used to come on our boat fairly often and just about managed. Look for something built like a Hudson with a 15 mil baseplate, ours had a small gap with just a few engineering bricks for trim between baseplate and deck. If the baseplate is heavy and not much ballast etc there is a chance of more headroom.
  6. I think that if you realy want to buy into the lifestyle you need to get on with it. You have already taken one year out of your life looking and considering the costs, over a real love of boating. You will never get that year back. So how much of your life do you intend waiting for the " Perfect " boat to fall into your lap? another year? two? You are dead for a hell of a long time. Just sayin like.

  15. True. We spent our first few years meeting very very few liveaboards. We had a mooring on the K and A and cced it 93 94. Between BOA and Bath we could travel a mile or more and not see another boat. There were a couple of dozen boats moored twix the croos guns and Bathhampton. Today there are god knows how many. From 89 till 92 we cced and met even less liveaboards. The numbers then started to build up. Its only very recently that its become so many, probably less than twenty years.

  17. Bloody hell was that 35 years ago I was just a baby in my thirties then, it seems like that ad was only on yesterday lol.
  18. We moved aboard full time in 1989. The old boat we bought was licensed, we have licensed every boat ever since. The only major change since then was the addition of the poxy BSS which we have also always complied with. There are always those in life that try to get round paying their way, evading paying for anything but still using resources/infrastructure. They are to be treated with the contempt they deserve.
  19. I am not tech savvy?? I doubt I would no how to customise anything?? although I may have followed some good advice back in time you gave about how to do it. I do recall Ive set mine so the Politics section isnt accessed with VNC, I have that seperate.
  20. Its weird then. I use a 14 inch chromebook and a cheapo android fone, no change with either.
  21. Apart from all the techy replies, if its got one of those little filter jobbies fitted just check its not full of debri from the tank.
  22. Its not fair, I havnt got it. What equipment do you use fort forum?
  23. Weird innit. Just looked on my android fone and thats normal as is my wonderful chromebook. It must be how we all have our settings or somett?
