  1. Also make sure you have regular oil changes as after 6 months of no oil movement you can get coagulation and screw the big ends.....i did that after 6 months in iraq. Was goig to do an oil change and my wife was late for work so i risked it and paid the price.....6k car written off pritty much got 1k for it.......
  2. As i would have suspected zenataomm. Nice try tho i guess.
  3. Hi all, Now i may be wrong as a noob to all tge world of narrow boating but ive just seen a boat that has been wallpapered internally in our hunt for our new to us boat..... Now as i say im no eggspurt but wallpaper and the cold......well they dont really work very well.......for example peeling off...... Am i missing something here or is it actualy feasable because if so clever for a modern contempary design idea if not disaster in the making.
  4. If anybody comes across a very modern interior or contemporary 60-65ft semi trad or cruiser stern narrow please let me know. cheers. Rusty she is a nice looking vessel i must say!
  5. She has had a deposit put down on her yesterday......
  6. Good to hear the engine has pedigree. Quite excited now. Wont be happy if i drive 3hrs for a crapper but we must if we want to find our personal diamond in the rough.....in my case more of a bright bloody pink ruby in the rough........lucky im quiting work or the blokes would loose all respect for me.....well what little i had.....
  7. One thing that does worry me is the boat builder got done for growing a certain smokable plant to help keep his business going as he was in debt to the tune of 150000 according to a newspaper article.....now renamed to nick thorpe boat building and have won awards. So a real story of ashes to riches....... get the punn ashes.......weed.....no......ah i give up i really do.
  8. Does anybody see anything their in the description to worry you? Is the izuzu engine a respected engine....i know its not a beta.....
  9. Gunna get up and go for this one early tomoz........im bloody mental.......
  10. Got to admit i love the internals alot!!! Very funky and very us our house is very modern and bright also. The classic look is fibe vut we like a bit of sometging special but that pink on the roof and at the cruiser stern would have to go!!!!!! Or id never pilot the damb thing cuz u buggers would laugh at me.
  11. My wife has found the boat of her dreams and im being seriously bullyed here...... check this out... https://m.apolloduck.com/feature.phtml?id=499883&rid=gb&cid=140&z=gb140
  12. Just out of interest do you change the rpm rates of your engine during idle to charge your battery system.....speaking from a trucking industry idle over long periods in a truck can cause significant milking of the oild in the filler cap and is not encouraged especialy if just at a fixed RPM.
  13. I was hoping a decent solar set up would provide a reasonable top up for the 12v systems during the summer months and spring and autumn at a push. Im not very knowledgeable about this stuff despite sitting up until 3am this morning with wifey trying to square this electricity draw and heating and hot water options. Im glad i have u all for advice!!!
  14. Will the inverter not smash the back doors out of the 4 leisure batterys if not recieving solar top up? If i stop off for a week i dont want to be runni g the engine for 2/3 hours a day.....silent genny is an option i guess
  15. Its on sale for 52000 which is a fair bit less than we can stretch too if we must for the right boat but i do like the fact its a newish boat being 2015
