  1. I bought a satellite dish with all sorts of stuff for £65 (odd). Satellite finder, free view box and loads of wonderful things.
  2. I think I'll wait till it gets warmer. It's a very big tank, so it could hopefully be condensation. Thanks all. Steve P
  3. It isn't insulated, but thinking about it, if it is empty then it wouldn't be as prone to condensation. Now I still don't know if it leaks.
  4. Thank you.
  5. A friend has just told me that I could get some sort of bladder to line it with.
  6. That's what I was hoping. I'll have a look at the weekend. I could probably get my head in the inspection hatch.
  7. Morning. I think I've found the problem. The stainless water tank could have a leak. Is there any way of lining it? There's an inspection hatch with reasonable access. I think it would be a bit of a mare to replace it.
  8. Good morning. I have been following a thread on the DBA forum about a possible problem with some widebeam boats being vat exempt due to the fact that they are liveaboard boats. A well know company have been using the wrong dimensions to enable the boat to qualify for zero vat. Can anyone clarify the situation please.
  9. Well it must be condensation. I'm just surprised how much there is. Thank you.
  10. The cabin bilge is totally separate from the engine bilge. It's not slower with a full tank.
  11. I blacked the boat last summer. Under the cratch is not insulated. But two litres over night!!! Orb goes directly out the side of the boat. No signs of leaks anywhere. "Orb" ferchrissakes. Prv.
  12. Thanks for the replies. Stainless tank. I have the problem with a full or empty tank. Ventilation Yes plenty. Cooking. I don't think I would create that much moisture, maybe if I emptied the pans on the floor. I've checked all the plumbing and there are no visible signs of leaks anywhere. It's definitely not weather related. Last year I had a period of about three months with a dry bilge. If I had a leak from outside I would assume it would be constant. I have checked everything when the pump is running. The only place I can't get to is under the shower tray, but the water is clean, no evidence of soap or bodily detritus 😳
  13. Good one. At least I'd know what it was.
  14. Yes but it's not that. I get it even if I don't. In an hour I've got a cup full in the bilge.
  15. after "... not dirty water" that will clean your post up Thanks. Still can't get it right.
