  1. Come on CWDF members - there are thousands of us. There should be lots and lots more signatures.

  3. Assist Insurance https://www.assistinsurance.co.uk/ Ask them for the benefits of their liveaboard policy and if you have a good quote for a like for like (ish) policy, tell them!
  4. Our liveaboard policy (as well as rehousing etc.) also includes (because I asked for it to be so) insurance of our items away from the boat. Like we had when we were in a house. So all our belongings are covered wherever they happen to be.

  7. Rushed off (electronically) and bought Andy's new book. It's become part of my annual summer boating habit for the last three years - go out cruising, read Andy's latest book. Looking forward to getting into it!
  8. Yup, tried that as well as one of the huge independent RV/caravan/mobile home dealers is only down the road. But they have their own in-house people for maintenance and fixes and not interested in outside work - indeed at the moment so busy they can't even cope with their inhouse demands!
  9. It's Daventry Refrigeration or Fridge Company you're probably meaning (found that by searching on here a few weeks ago). I rang them and they were very nice and said they'd ask Brian (original owner of company but now really retired) and I'd have to get the fridge to them. They didn't call back so I assumed he'd said he wasn't doing them any more.
  10. We've just been through all this with our Shoreline Larder Fridge. Electrics, voltage, compressor all find so diagnosis was a leak and cost of even trying to find out where leak would have been around £140 (Shoreline would have collected fridge) and even then might a) not have been able to fix at a sensible cost or b) unable to find leak. Rather than go that route or just go ahead and buy a new 12v larder fridge at the £550+, we've switched to a 230v larder fridge which cost under £140. We run 230v on the boat anyway and have a 230v table top running freezer separately and when out cruising batteries seem happy enough, so this seemed the best choice.
  11. How about seeing if you can get in at Saltisford Arm, Warwick. The rail station is only a mile or so from there. Lovely moorings!
  12. https://www.yours.co.uk/life/home/eco-egg-review/ And I never use fabric conditioner so the powder drawer or whatever it's called never gets used. So the washing machine is as clean and unsullied as the day we bought it years ago! (I do run a hot cleansing washcycle with nothing in it every couple of months just to keep it that way
  13. www.ecoegg.com I use these and have done for the last couple or three years as do all the family ... the blue one for coloureds and the white one for, obviously!, whites. With a scoop of Vanish when things are a bit grubby!! They work brilliantly, don't take up cupboard space and just need the pellets renewing every six months or year (depending on how often you wash)
  14. Yes, that's exactly what we did when we had a house and a boat. Now the boat is our residential address so things have changed.
