  1. I'm waiting to find out the model number now.
  2. There is that option of course!
  3. Hello I'm looking at ordering a pump out toilet and waste tank for my new build and wondered if anyone using this equipment could give me any help and advice. I've found a Jabsco PAR toilet and tank kit for £1300 - do you think this is reasonable? (boatbilder quote is £1960!) Two of us will live aboard and i'm wondering if a 390l tank will last for say 2 weeks? (wouldn't want to have to empty more than this!) Some seem to have a mascerator and some don't - any views? Finally, a friend of mine installed a toilet that seems to have a very small hole which causes problems. If anyone has a Jabsco can you reassure me? Any advice much appreciated... Ali

  5. I was wondering the same
  6. Very interesting. I would really like to get involved in this - will look out for the ad and find out more.
  7. Many thanks - very useful info.
  8. Hello, I just tried to have a look at your blog and it said I needed to be invited to view. I'm in a similar osition myself with a sailaway being delivered in the sring next year. I trust all is going well with your fit out?
  9. Hello Andrew Browsing through the forum and I wondered if you would be able to say a few words about how things are working out for you and the family? House sold, we are moving into interim accommodation in a few days and will be ordering a new build widebeam in the next few weeks for delivery in February. We includes myself, teenage daughter and son and our dog, and this will be a new way of life for us. Would also be very interested to know if you used Viking Canal Boats and how things worked out there?
  10. Many thanks for all this useful advice everyone, will let you know how its all working when I get going...
  11. Thanks I want to know if I could use the mobile and the monthly data allowance on that, instead of having a dongle or sim contract as well? I will be a continuous cruiser, so it would be good to know if anyone can recommend good satellite [ digital systems and the costs, etc. Thanks I want to know if I could use the mobile and the monthly data allowance on that, instead of having a dongle or sim contract as well?

  12. Thanks - if this covers our usage that would be great. Do you have any recommendations for digital TV?
  13. Hi all House now sold and now living in temporary accommodation till early spring when my new liveaboard will be ready. One of the things I've got to sort out is access to the internet and digital TV channels - and my mobile contract is up for renewal now so I need to get the best one for use on the boat... - Digital TV is the most straight forward and I'm wondering what people recommend is the best equipment? - As for the internet, I will be working from home alot of the time, also have a daughter who will happily sit on Facebook/etc all evening... Would want to download the odd film/tv programme and music occasionally. We will have two laptops, a Blackberry and I'm thinking of getting an IPhone 16mg I've used a dongle before and it turned out to be expensive given the amount of hours we access the internet. Any views on this or alternative suggestions? I've also heard that its possible to use a mobile phone as a modem for a laptop, and to watch films (plugging it into the TV) and i'm wondering if this would work with an Iphone? Is anyone doing this and if so what is the speed/coverage like? Any views/advice would be very much appreciated.
  14. Thank you for this.
