  1. If I haven't given up by then, it will be the day that I do finally quit the waterways .
  2. Yes Pity cart are not as proactive.
  3. There used to be a mooring warden at "Arm End" who sat in his well deck reading his paper most weekends with not a stitch on. Shocked a few people 🤭
  4. Being persona non grata I can't see the piece.

  6. The number on the alternator 900383-als comes back as a Prestolite alternator with insulated return.

  8. You underestimate its value, there is a lot of money to be made playing music of all genres. There are also those musicians that make nothing but Peggy ain't one of them.
  9. I've emptied my cassette over the side twice as there were no disposal facilities close by. Both times was to the East of Sea Reach No3 Buoy🤭
  10. I have had an Airlink industrial transformer since 2006, from the days before they made the boat ones. As it's a toroidal transformer the hum is very slight and I can't hear it. Only downside with Airlink is the softstart which does destroy itself after a while. I ran for 10 years without softstart before I got round to fitting something like THIS into the supply. The only thing I would change is I would get one with primary taps as I tend to see variable voltages, between 220v and 250v, in different locations and it would enable me to set the voltage on the boat.
  11. So we have gone back to what we did in the 70's dig a hole in a nearby field, fill it and then cover it over. That's progress? 😟

  13. There used to be an excellent hatch builder really close to Redhill but he retired a year or so ago. Posts on here from time to time.

  15. Off the top of my head: Less output Shorter working life. There are more reasons but I would need to look into it again. Have you already made up your mind ?
  16. Have you been to a classic commercial vehicle show lately?
  17. For me when I fit stuff to my boat anything that is Ultra Low Voltage* is on a fuse. Anything that is Low Voltage** is on an MCB. So all my 230vac stuff is on MCB all my DC stuff is on fuses. Helps to know that if it's an MCB it's going to hurt if you get it wrong. There are many MCB that are not rated to work with DC *ULV =less than 50vac / 120vdc **LV =less than 1000vac / 1500vdc but higher than ULV
  18. Steering from a wheelhouse is fine, especially when it's raining and you see all those standing at their tillers getting soaked 🤭
  19. Used to fit those in dimmer racks before the advent of MCBs no faults that I can remember and we had thousands of them

  21. That looks remarkably like FOTRN Peartree Farm moorings 😎
