In Topic: What have you lost in the cut?

15 March 2013 - 08:16 PM

I lost my empty Thetford Cassette in the cut, and could be seen trying to coax it back with a broom. Also lost my cratch cover too and a lovely neighbour spotted it at the bottom of the basin. Quite a feat since the cratch cover and the bottom of the basin are both black....

Edited for clarity....

My illusions have been shattered. I thought we got up to 11 mph!! Spinal tap?? I have no idea.

Fuzz....I can do that!! Just need to explain what the p bracket is. Actually, I can ask someone in the Marina Office to point me in the direction of the p bracket.

Had a brilliant day so many thanks to Tree Monkey, BSP, Fuzz and Mike32. :hug: I'm very touched that people would come so far to help me out. Even learnt some new stuff like how to fill the stern greaser gland :clapping: thanks BSP and TM, how to cool the engine (my fault it overheated because I turned into a speed demon) , tried out my 'approaching a pontoon' technique. Just have to remember not to be distracted by birdies when chugging along at 11mph, and keep my eyes 'on the road'. Guess what happened last night? :tired: :tired: In bed by 930.

Thanks Chris, this is excellent information. I have no TV but use my laptop for a few hours every weekday evening. When I say red, amber and green lights I'm referring to those on the Morningstar controller. Yes I have 4 110Ah batteries and use normal stuff like LED lights and computer, pumps. No microwave, TV, toaster or hairdryer. I'll get a voltmeter as a first step.
Many thanks.
