  4. Where have you been posting? I think posts in the Politics & Current affairs section don't increment your post count. Or something like that.
  5. Why would you want to mix different manufacturers components when Victron do everything a good system requires? Victron do everything a good Solar set up requires and you can expand and upgrade with the same manufacturer at a later date. They have a good product line up and an informative internet site and are fitted and recommended by most boat solar fitters. Stick with all Victron.
  6. First they came for the wide beam owners and I did not speak out— Because I was not a wide beam owner. Then they came for the continuos cruisers, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a continuos cruiser. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. with apologies to Martin Niemöller

  9. I'll explain it to you, like it or not there are now a large number of boats without mooring in the London and outer London area this creates pressure on towpath moorings and means the ability to cruise and stop somewhere congenial without worry has disapeared for the rest of us. Tough but there it is. Now without producing any evidence CRT propose reducing mooring on 2 popular pounds. I can see why reducing moorings might be popular with rowers and noddy boat hire companies but can see no obvious reason why it would be popular with boaters. There is clearly a divide and rule scenario going o
  10. I too have recently fitted a Balmar SG200, it's been in use for about 6 weeks now. Monitoring discharge seems fine but when charging the SoC seems to be inaccurate. It uses voltage & tail current to establish when 100% SoC is reached. The 'Time remaining' to 100% is currently useless - it'll frequently go from 6 hours to go to fully charged in 20 minutes. I'm reluctant to start tinkering with the pre-set values, certainly until I've got a better idea of what's going on with it.
  11. Baloney, there are fish living at huge depths, the oxygen is in the water.
  12. I've noticed that my number of posts hasn't changed for some time. My likes counter still appears to be increasing (slowly). I don't know how I should report this or if anyone else has noticed.

  14. Thanks Thanks Alan de Enfield, It's 28' and inboard engine. Can I still get it insured? I thought boats at to be 4mm minimum, but it seems this is not the case? I would like to be safe and like to be insured so if I had a dire circumstance I wouldn't lose all... I'd also like it insured right away, as ownership transferred. Not going through a brokerage means I have to figure out what to do properly. I assume I'll have to get a CC license pretty quick too. But that said, I found this old thread and it does make me feel a little be
  15. We have quite a deep drafted boat but rarely cannot achieve 3mph, more like 3.5mph unless it's a very shallow canal. And this is at 1300rpm without any breaking wash, or even much in the way of wash. Seems likely to me the OP has something on the prop, or just a very small prop.
  16. Maxol were a brand of Burco in Burnley. Now gone I am afraid, the group company was Glen Dimplex. I suggest that you ask them but don't hold much hope of spares for this old appliance.

  21. My name's Paul, and I'm seriously thinking about buying a NB to live-aboard, but it's many years since I've been on one, and although I get the gist of ropes and locks etc., I could do with a refresher to gain confidence and help me decide whether to go ahead. Hiring a boat for a week seems like a pretty expensive way of getting a 'crash' course, and I wondered if there were any gentle folk / single-crewers who'd be interested in trading their experience and a spare bunk for a helping hand for a week or so? Obviously I'd expect to pay my way... I'm a decent, responsible, double-jabbed 55-year

  23. Unfortunately it looks like I don't have one! I followed the pipe work from the stopcock all the way to the pump and there's nothing in between them, sadly. So might need to look at fitting one. IN RELATED NEWS, the plot thickens! I just pulled the wall off under the steps at the bow doors, and it looks like the water tank sits a couple of inches BELOW the fore deck. So I'm not sure how this affects the inspection hatch enlargement situation? Is this and integral tank, or have I got a separate stainless one on my hands? I would have assumed it wouldn't be rusty if it wa
