    How much does my boat weigh?

    Wheres @Albion when you need him! He used to have a simple excel file that asked you for various parameters Length, beam, swim lengths etc that gave out an answer in tons. I will look and see if i have a copy somewhere but it was a while ago. Strangely I still have it. File below Displacement.xls

    If there is a NE bond on the boat when connected to a shore supply the RCD on shore would trip.

    It can happen with single phase units but being pulsed a normal RCD should pick this up. If its fine on shore power and only trips on the genset I cant see how anything on the input side apart from some kind of interference created by the genset would cause an RCD to trip. The PDF was the first one I found to try and explain my thoughts. Would still like to know the type of RCD (AC, A,B) Type AC. Ensures tripping for residual a.c. currents, Type A Ensures tripping for residual a.c. currents and pulsating d.c. currents, Type B Ensures tripping for residual a.c. currents, pulsating d.c. currents and smooth d.c. currents.

    RCDs only sense what is on the output side so does it trip with everything on the O/P side switched off and preferably disconnected? If you add things back in one at a time what causes it to trip? Secondly some RCD are AC/DC sensing and the generator could be creating DC which is then being passed through the RF protection of the Sterling to ground causing it to trip. Can you post a close up picture of the RCD so the type can be determined. For those that think I am talking cr@p about DC try reading the attached file! Techpub-17.pdf

    Build it, Fill It

    Mahjong is played with tiles rather than cards. I still have my set from the days when I used to play, its a modern set so not made of ivory.

    Some of us don't! Weighing in at over 100kg Ill take my chances with cyclists. I used to be known as the portable roundabout for a very good reason.

    I you like good pubs when you get on the Thames may I recommend the Isis Farmhouse just above Iffley lock. Not open every day in winter but fabulous just the same. Only accessable on foot or by boat. http://www.theisisfarmhouse.co.uk https://goo.gl/maps/GYhfg8nCS3u
