  8. My last boat I got 13 K off because I turned up on a rainy cold day, didn't piss about with a survey and offered cash by bank transfer there and then. Twenty minutes from first turning up and I owned the boat. I did similar with the one before that and a couple of others. Enforced surveys for insurance purposes are however much harder to avoid.
  9. Mad isn't it, jobs for the boys Peter 😩
  10. If that's about all they can find worth mentioning it's sounding like a good boat.
  11. I just don't fall for the line that if it's new it's better. Just look at music these days lol.
  12. My lads brewery puts a 10 percent service charge on all the food bills. It is clearly stated on all menus and at the bar, its brewery policy so he has no say in the matter. I asked him last month when visting if it pissed people off and if many asked for it to be removed as it says they will on the bill. He said no one asks and often leave cash tip as well, imagine that in a pub in Yorkshire lol ( He is daarn saaarff ) He doesnt mind as the brewery accountants have a system that work out who was working and tax is paid on it to keep HMRC happy and they get the rest monthly in their wages. In tips alone he gets a grand a month and more such as december and his missus the same. Pre these kind of systems HMRC lost out on moocho tax,
  13. Lol, you tight sod, just buy a lithium battery using your extensive spare dosh!!
  14. I will ask him, if he buys the boat.
  15. He will keep it IF its a proper install?? Otherwise tried and tested for decades never let him down lead acid will go in. To be honest depending on boat use lithium is an expensive toy. His boat useage is plugged in to mains at mooring 24/7 so any battery works well and when out he cruises a few hours a day on jaunts that charges the lead acid anyway. Lithium is of course good for cmers for instance who dont have mains and dont move and a weight saving for many applications but for boats isnt a real problem.
  16. There are other small problems with the boat including a lithium battery but that's easily removed and sorted. The other bits such as fitting a washing machine are not much of a problem. He's going for a look at it. Trying to find a max 41 foot boat that's as big up to that size as possible is far from easy. He doesn't want a project and would have bought a new beetle but there is a waiting list. An air fryers will suffice as he has mains at the mooring but it's nice to have genuine feedback on the stove.

  21. 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.
  22. Try @matty40s he used to do it but I am not sure if he still does.
  23. I think he has or did have a Dickinson?? but thanks for your input
  24. 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
