  8. I do yes, but I also realise that nearly all like the mate is buying are diesel. Two bloody big ones. Money is no object so why not lectric?
  9. Joking apart though. When people of his spending power ( several million for his latest boat ) can have whatever they want, if electric is so marvelous why isnt he having it in his new boat or indeed the cheapy 2 million pound or so boat he has at present??
  10. Wise words. In answer to the question, NO a " Decent?? " living for two cannot possibly be made out of such a venture. The lifestyle choice will b4 very long bring stress due to level of income unless they have some other income stream we know not of.
  11. Yes our friend doesnt quote litres often, he buys fuel by the ton!! Tanks are somewhere around 5000 litres. He has a new boat on order and ive just googled the specs and the tanks on that one are depending on actual model around 11000 litres.....kinell Oh and edit to add, it aint poxy electric As he can afford anything, I do wonder why companies are not fitting hairdryer motors to boats like his as the norm these days??
  12. Yes, I dont think the fuel prices for narrowboat useage will concern anyone who has such a boat. It is still a small part of running the boat even if ccing. Whilst recently having a beer with a friend of hours we actualy mentioned fuel useage for boats and I said just how little over the thirty odd years diesel had cost us. When he tops his boat up it costs him about 5k each time and he doesnt let the tanks get very low,

  21. This brings back memories. Heres some info for any non armed forces bods. When bulling yer boots do NOT buy Cherry blossom shoe polish as it simply doesnt work, however good you are at the method. Kiwi is best but some other lesser known ones do work.

  23. I was most impressed with one of my grandkids only the other day. I asked him how tall he was and he immediately replied six feet seven, without hesitation, as thats what he says whoever asks. It just goes to show that even today some unis at least have kids who know their stuff It makes far more sense than two hunderd point seven centimetres anyway
