  1. Save me researching. How old, how long, and, crucially, what toilet type?
  2. Forget about the RCD. AdeE loves to recite the rules and regulations and he's always technically correct, but in practice you don't need to consider the RCD at all on a 9 year old narrowboat. IMHO. You need to: 1. Satisfy yourself that the boat is safe for you, for you to use at the time you get it (regardless of whether it was when it was built). 2. Satisfy yourself that it is at least as safe as required by the BSS for others if you use it.
  3. The bridge should be pensioned off to a nice desert somewhere. The river is only half full, half of the time, so it must be bigger than it needs to be, and the banks could be extended inwards on both sides, reducing the width of the river, and affordable housing should be built upon it. This principle has been used elsewhere, hasn't it? Then a shorter cheaper new bridge could be built.
  4. Professional sprayfoam is done by contractors, and If I was doing it again, I would not let them leave the site until I has checked it over much more thoroughly than I did last time. I used 13 large cans to fill the gaps and holidays they left. The cans of course are nowhere as good as the professional stuff. They were contracted by me not Colecraft so it was my lack of oversight. I don't see Colecraft as budget builders, they are not cheap!! If you want them to build a high-end boat for you they can and they will, at a high-end price. I have no experience of crap builders so I can't
  5. I got my sailaway from Colecraft in 2010 and I would definitely go there again. You can get cheaper but the quality is worth the difference. Professional sprayfoam, yes, every time.

  10. Does everybody else have a jet engine in their Webasto ThermoTop C? I don't seem to have one. Have I been short-changed by my installer? Does everybody else have a jet engine in their Webasto ThermoTop C? I don't seem to have one. Have I been short-changed by my installer?
  11. Use helicopters to drop bags of dry ice onto the ship. The resulting contraction of the ship as it cools will free it off. Simples!
  12. I use BBedit on my Mac Air. Textwrangler used to be the free version of BBedit. I pay an annual fee and it is so worth it. (I have refrained from going 64 bit on my Mac but I doubt that is relevant.)
  13. Use Textwrangler or other free editors, they have really good features to help you identify your bracket pairings. (and other syntax errors). It is easy to tell the Arduino IDE that you are using an alternative editor.
  14. The Captain has just radio'ed for extra emergency help. Apparently his last cassette is full.
  15. Have you got unbalanced { } s? Are you outside a brace pair? If it was a 4-72 then it was System 4 not an IBM machine!!!
