    Hired No.2 in the fleet for five day's really showing her age big chunk of the dashboard covering missing most of the floorboards in the rear cabin were loosely fastened down, I was not impressed with No.2 if you are going to hire this boat book No.1 as was on that for two consecutive years in much better nick than No.2 never hired No.3 so can't say what that one is like but would definitely recommend No.1

    Although our family tends to go for the more simplistic boat, my fathers limited mobility lead to us going for a boat with better access. Sonnet 1 was our choice and generally speaking, it wasn't bad at all. Lower access at the stern makes it an easy boat to get into and there's a single step just inside the door to enter the boat. Compared to other boats of the same style, this step down is not excessively steep, but unfortunately that same step did prevent the shower room door from opening properly. It's worth noting that a large person may have trouble getting into the shower. Handy features of the boat include the ability to see drinking water levels, toilet/pump out level & battery charge levels. Knowing how much water you have really is a nice feature as it removes the usual guesswork. The toilet level is also useful, though you should note that it is only designed to register a level once the tank is half full (so do keep checking). The boat has a flush toilet, which flushes with water from your drinking supply (apparently). This boat does have a lot of electrics onboard. Microwave combi oven, electric hob, kettle, toaster, fridge, TV, DVD player, radio, hairdryer, electric mud weight winch etc. When cooking, the battery meter showed a power usage of 60-90A. The battery bank could certainly cope with quite a lot, but be prepared for a lot of engine running to keep batteries topped up (4-6 hours per day). Diesel price was about 20p/l more than at Herbert Woods. Shore-power can be used. The combi oven was OK. Nothing special, but does the job. Certainly handy for people who like to microwave things. Less interesting for people like to crisp things off a bit. :) The hob was a bit of a pain because it was wedged a little under the slanting sides of the boat. If the pan goes off dead centre of the ring it switches off as a safety precaution. keeping two pans on the go was a challenge, but no major issue! Fridge was excelent by boat standards. TV was useless. No picture on any chanel at any time (not a fuzzy picture - no picture). Cheap plastic aerial probably the cause (position of aerial made no difference). I'm sure that one of the usual metal aerials would have obtained a picture , but we weren't all that fussed about TV. The sliding roof leaked badly, but will probably be fixed by the time anyone else gets it (I hope) Boat: Very good.... Boatyard: Very bad experience all round - wouldn't use again. A real shame.
