  1. Moving a boat between networks

    Hi Our boat is a skinny widebeamor a fat narrowboat 30ft x 8.6ft, we used DCL Transport Services Preston Total cost £480 - collect from Bridgehouse Marina PR3 0JJ Delivery to York Marina YO19 4RW
  2. Moving a boat between networks

    We bought our boat at Lancaster and road transported to york and I found this quite simple ⚓️Possible due to letting the experts do they job. Once you price up, lifts & Transport cost, you can use this when purchasing a boat. Most Important was all the help / advice we received from forum members 💕 We listened and used there experience 💕🚣‍♀️

    No no no it just doesn't go with tillers But for a sealine boat it's a definatly yes ⛴

    Yes spadfoot we have thought that & midland chandlers have A Morse Stoves on offer just under £600 which is a really good price. But getting old stove out & new one in seems to be the problem Any ideas on how to make this easier

    The stove is as old as the boat (17) so that's pretty good however we have only had the boat 3 years
  9. Retiring a Multi fuel stove 👀

    Oops Well it comes to use all old age our lovely cosy Morse Squirrel stove has developed a saggy top & wrinkles, that is cracks on the top. A little bit of plastic surgery preformed by OH has worked wonders, but sadly she will have to go We are looking for replacement : 5kw British made multi fuel stove budget of £450 Also,How easy |hard will it be to take the old stove out & install a new stove
  10. ropes

    We do this too We use Old ropes to moor up in marina & the good ropes when out cruising.
  11. Milton or Bleach

    We prefer to usee Milton tablets once a year to clean the water tank & it cleans the pipes, shower head etc.
  12. How often do you use your boat?

    Love winter on our boat we are toasty warm with the squirrel stove, lovely & no need to say it's a narrowboat of course 💕
