  1. Fire Brick Advice Please

    This has been said before but I can never find it. What dept is it in?
  2. any thoughts on this one

    Then it will be " we tried to sell the moorings but nobody wanted them so now we will do away with them"
  3. Morso v The Rest

    I have only had a Boatman so cannot compare it to any other make, but am extremely please with it. It heats my 60' boat adequately, stays in for at least 18 hrs with excel. Not had any of the problems that Mtb has highlighted, my stove is also over 3yrs old
  4. Cleaning white mist off squirrel glass

    What do you consider 'good quality smokeless ovals' I find that the normal run of the mill ovals vary greatly from year to year
  5. Bespoke mattress advice please

    Don't laugh but the only problem I had was my fitted sheets would not stay in place and in had to buy on eBay some bed suspenders!
  6. Bespoke mattress advice please

    Last month I got a gel foam mattress from Custom Made Beds, am very pleased with it. Free delivery next day.
  7. Chimney clearance of gunk.

    I used Excel from our local supplier last winter and my flue was almost completely blocked, did you use the same?
  8. Why is it so hard to buy diesel?

    Never mind the base price or people's attitude why would would you want to pay more for your diesel by declaring 50/50.
  9. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    Why? who would pee in the cut?
  10. Seeking opinions on porthole verses rectangle windows

    Liveaboard, all portholes, no problems with light issues. I should imagine that large windows must give privacy concerns given the number of boats who always have their blinds/curtains closed all the time.
  11. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    If the urine bottle still has fresh water in it the bacteria in the fresh water will make the urine smell so it is better to have 2 bottles and rotate them.
  12. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    Yes use pet bedding, only vented to outside the box. Had a lot of problems in previous occupation with macerators, pumps and holding tanks on an industrial scale so would never consider a holding tank on a boat. Have to put up with some awful smells when pumping out in my present occupation, far worse than anything from my Kildwick in fact no smell at all.
  13. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    Yes a Kildwick, no moving parts or water supply to worry about, nothing at all like the air heads or similar, very much a big step forward. You can either go the whole hog and compost to use later or dispose with other refuse, no worse than soiled nappies in fact better as it is already started to compost. I prime the urine bottle with ecover toilet cleaner so no smell.
