  2. Its not the price as its quite expensive, he has plenty of cash. Its the size at only forty feet. He has a forty foot mooring and tiny boats like that are few and far between as he doesnt want shorter if possible. You and I both know that long boats are better value for money but he doesnt have that option.
  3. Try @matty40s he used to do it but I am not sure if he still does.
  4. I think he has or did have a Dickinson?? but thanks for your input
  5. Hi Peeps. Years ago I had a boat I fitted mistakenly with a piece of crap diesel stove made by Dickinson, it was bloody awful. Fast forward to today. A good friend has seen a boat on brokerage that at first sight seems to have one major drawback, its gas free, never a good sign and has the Kuranda stove fitted. Now does any of you actualy have one of these very expensive stoves and can give any honest feedback as to suitability for liveaboard use please. Such as genuine useability, time to heat up and regulate etc etc. Problem is of course first owner wrongly specified gas free so removing said stove is not so easy as just banging a proper gas stove in but all boats are a compromise somewhere and is the stove a definate no no?? Taa in advance. Genuine advice would be very much appreciated but the usual humour and wind up is also completely acceptable

  16. There was a pub directly opposite that I don't recall the name of, I wonder if that survives also? And one 100 yards down the road. The area was called The Pole iirc? We were typing together lol. I did remember the name the Pole then lol. It was 91 and 92 we did it, a proper pub then with absolutely no food available and packed each evening and absolutely rammed at weekends.
  17. The Anglers arms, do you know it? Google tells me it's still there.
  18. Manchester as any fool knows is a dump. The missus and I used to run a pub in Failsworth on holiday relief a few years ago, we wore crash helmets behind the bar 😉 running a pub in such places is not for the faint hearted lol.
  19. My last boat had double glazed windows throughout. They cost a fortune but we're of a design that meant every or any window could be removed in seconds. On mega hot days they could be removed and air flow in the boat which was awesome. Another great benefit was being able to pass stuff out for the Barby every few feet of boat length rather than just through side hatches.
