  1. The boat would have to be in sufficiently good state to be able to withstand the craning without folding in half or otherwise collapsing. Narrowboats are remarkably high when out of the water, you might want to consider putting it in a shallow or not so shallow trench. Maybe with faux lock gates? You could move it in in pieces and get it welded together, a process not unlike having a boat stretched. My 60ft-er would just fit down the side of my house, pity about the narrow drive with the 7.5 ton limit...
  2. So if you cross him, he'll threaten to beat seven bells out of you?
  3. At about 7 years old it will no longer be available.

  6. I run my 7Kg Candy always cold wash off a Victron 1600 Combi with the engine Beta 43 with 175 alternator running. It may be that the enzymes don't enjoy the cold but I can't detect any inadequacy in the quality of the output and that's all that matters to me. The main problem for me is stopping it dancing around, my restraints need tightening.

  9. The exact model I have is no longer made. I have emailed Jabsco & asked what is the current equivalent since it is not obvious from their website. Bloody merge strikes again: In case it has not already been said, some accumulator/expansion tanks are non-potable so choose carefully.

  11. My water pump is a Jabsco of the type that doesn't require an accumulator. It is 10 years old with admittedly low use. It was expensive but I wouldn't have anything else. It speeds up and slows down according to demand. It doesn't cut in overnight. My water pump is mounted 2 - 3 ft up the side wall of the boat and sucks water out of the tanks (2) about 10ft away from the top of the tanks using a dip tube. I can leave the boat for 2 months and when I come back, the syphon between the tanks and the pump is still intact. I can deliberately break the syphon when desired to give 100% conf
  12. What I'd like is some simple system for lifting the weedhatch cover. A lifting eye above perhaps? As I get older, the hatch cover gets heavier, and the lifting operation having to be done from the side so to speak disagrees more and more with my back. A clear dedicated parking space for it would also be nice.
  13. Spares. Spare lock keys - short throw & long, ropes, handcuff keys, waste tank lid key, gas lighter, ignition key, door key, car key, extra mooting pins, wife, sledge hammers, spares of everything, that is losable/forgetable.
  14. Never buy a narrowboat that does not have an authentic signature by the creative artiste that produced it, and an authenticated provenance. If you think you have an unrecognised high-quality antique narrowboat, take it to a BBC Antiques Roadshow.
