BOAT= Bung On Another Thousand! Welcome to the forum Sam. I've formed the view that to use the term marine as a prefix or suffix enables the vendor or provider of services to charge what they like! Playful  I think it goes back to the days when boating was largely a rich man's pass time. For the likes of you and I and lots of others on this forum, we run on a limited budget and it can be tough at times. Is it worth it? Yes, of course it is!

Hi, and welcome,

NEVER, EVER mention "Marine", or "Boat", in the same breath as "Have you got". Recipe for highway robbery (or should that be riverway robbery).

Try to use camping or car spares for stuff that doesn't have to be boaty specific, but always make sure anything outside is stainless, or non-corrosive.

Other than that - enjoy!

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

Hello Sam,

Welcome to the forum.

As the other posters say anything to do with boats is more costly than anything else, use camping/caravan suppliers for preference, check out for lowest costs, a lot of Marine Suppliers are now offering services on Ebay.

With regards to most of the toilets used on boats you can get the service kits, same goes for diesel heating a service kit will cost about £25.00 to £30.00.

Regards
Alan

Hi Sam and welcome
Few are able to buy a new boat, most of us have a boat between 20 and 40+ years old. Now if we were to buy a car in that age range we would expect to be repairng and replacing most things on an ongoing basis, with the associated costs involved in classic cars.
Always get a survey done on a boat before purchase, it can save a fortune in the long run. ( no, i don't survey boats, just property  Smile )

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

We have recently discovered Ebay for chandlery and using caravan bits, but we learnt it the hard way (only discovering it once we had thought of it).

Looking back on the few years we have had the boat I am surprised to how much there was to “learn” as it were.

Regards, Sam
