  1. Well Christmas came and went, and I did get loads of 'boat' pressies... I was a great experience seeing the boat delivered on time and in great shape. We are really happy with the finished product. Now to get on board and do the work on our side! Will post some pictures when I learn how to do it.

  3. Still very excited, but sometimes feeling totally overwhelmed! Going to have to accept that no matter how much research I do or questions I ask this is a massive learning curve and we are just going to have to get on board and carry on learning! Have changed boat spec to 60 x 10 and the work is now well underway. Delivery to be confirmed for late January, early Feb.

  4. Pump out toilet and waste tank

    I'm waiting to find out the model number now.
  5. Pump out toilet and waste tank

    There is that option of course!
  6. Pump out toilet and waste tank

    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

  12. 70 x 11ft Widebeam

    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?

    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?
