LARGE water Butt.

Anyone got a LARGE water Butt suitable foe running up the engine (250DF)??
I've seen Big Blue Food Barrells/Butts about 5' tall which I could cut down, if that rings any Bells....I'd imagine they'd hold 300litres- ish or more.
The water pressure where I keep the Boat is a bit low for Muffs.
Cheers.

However, he'll find that they don't work as they're too small.

I've seen lads use domestic water storage tanks with some success (attic tanks). They cost a few quid, but Maxi won't shy away from REMO kit.

Not sure they are now. Like blue pallets, I think they want them back these days. Try and get one from a spirit importers, they smell much nicer when you cut them open and the dregs go quite well with tonic.
