  1. This is ment in the most bestist of taste!! Not quite shure what you are getting at, are you arguing about my comment ' no realistic' or do you agree, not going to get into heated arguments, just didn't understand what you meant. We are full time livaboards cruise from feb to dec then take a winter mooring in a marina so agree full time mooring a waste of money. My point was too many residential moorings is making the system seem like a housing estate,
  2. Missing boater and boat, police aware

    Sorry to hear of his trouble hope he's found soon, if hes depressed over the situation i can fully understand his wanting to get away, been there its not nice.
  3. Goes to show, too many folk ready to use the canals as a housing estate and not for the intended use, ie to navigate/ move/ cruise.
  4. Where can "Pump Out Cards" be bought?

    Are there no marinas/yards in your area if you that desperate? Must admit didn't realise a lot don't work, we purchased a card three years ago just in case and obviously never used it, good luck

    I have three pin plug on one end that goes into the inverter the other end connects to the cable I use when pluging into shore power this in turn goes through the consumer unit, there for the electrics are protected, the safer option.
  9. A sad day at yelvertoft Marina

    If you KNOW your dogs will attack cats you have a duty to either train or control them, there are folk on the canals with cats who are family pets, maybe someone doesn't like dogs so it would be ok to attack them i suppose.
