  1. I think when you are dealing on the phone with the same person who is doing the job this can cause a bit of frustration. The best service I have ever received was from Aqueduct Marina, their staff have great customer service skills, especially Jane. Made every job a pleasant experience.
  2. Thanks for the information. I'm considering the Rylards option at the moment. Think it's worth paying the extra. If it doesn't work out will definitely look into a replacement plastic tank.
  3. Hi, I'm sure you will have a great time no matter what! That's the beauty of it. We have planned journeys before and it's amazing how you can clock up the miles. We also amble along and that too is a brilliant way to travel. I do think it will be extra busy out there in June though so we are playing it by ear this year. We will settle for just getting on our boat. Seriously thinking of cruising all year too!
  4. Thanks everyone. As soon as this lockdown is over it will be one of the first jobs I tackle. Roll on the spring. Missin' my boat!
  5. Thanks for the useful info. I would like to avoid going down the bitumen route. We emptied the tank just before christmas, cleaned it out ready to tackle in the spring. Last time , we had a marina sort it but the paint only lasted a year. If you have any paint recommendations that would be suitable please post them, thanks all.
  6. Anyone have the answer as to which is the best product to use on our water tank after preparing the surface? Neutrarust 661, Fertan and Vactan have been suggested but I would love to hear of any tried and tested ( and successful) projects. Many thanks
  7. I think you now have to move forward and not dwell on things. 'Plenty more boats in the sea etc'. You have alot more inside information gained from the advice given and that will help if you decide to continue your search. I really hope you do. There are a number of things I would have different on my boat but it's a life I wouldn't change. Think of this as the end of page 1.
  8. Take a breath! We had the same dilemma a few years ago. Our surveyor advised that if nothing untoward showed up on the survey then not to worry. As others have said as long as you keep an eye on everything and keep on top of all the jobs required just try to enjoy it but if it really feels wrong for you then if you can withdraw from the sale. You normally get this feeling after the sale! Only joking. The boat looks very nice and cosy though, I wish you well.
  9. Thanks everyone for so much info. There's alot to think about. Our water is currently stored in the front part of the boat. We had it cleaned and repainted last year and now it needs doing again! We do have space under the floor of the cratch area & a neighbour suggested a tek tank (unsure of spelling). I guess they've all got pro's & cons especially the fact that the bladders can snag on the sides. Thanks again.
  10. Hi Everyone We're thinking of getting a quote for either a plastic tank or a water bladder for our fresh water. If anyone has any advice on the subject please reply. Many thanks
  11. Hi Our BSC is up for renewal & we are currently on the Caldon Canal. Can anyone suggest a surveyor for the Stoke area that they have some dealings with, Good ones I hope? Thanks
  12. Can anyone suggest a good mobile engineer that could come & advise us of a problem we might have with our stern tube? We are in the Burton On Trent area. Many thanks Sue
  13. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  14. When I got the boat It struck me that I had taken on something huge! but when I`m out with her my stresses fade away & I`m lost in the inner peace that I feel. How lucky are we to expererience this!! Sue Does anyone feel the same?
  15. I obviously have given the impression of whatever happens - happens! This is not the case. I will endeavour to avoid ANY sort of contact and merely wanted advice. Sue
