  14. Actually 2 are in the south 😄 as for car owners the forums are a good indicator of what's happening, since covid things have changed, yes there will be the high mileage warriors but zoom has slowed it all down thankfully. Jayne the other half is a good example 300 miles a week for work, she now goes into work once or twice a week. Her whole department is the same, saves money and pollution
  15. Still wrong Ian and until you have both you will never get it, until you own both! I know 3 other owners with widebeam and no narrowboat. EVs I know plenty of owners same situation as myself pottering around with occasional long trips, like me they can charge at home and do but equally they charge for free when out and about. We do long journeys and do rapid charging you saw a bill for it
  16. How do you know? You own neither I own both my charging is typical of EV owners and a widebeam is the ideal for electric plenty of room for fitting everything including the panels. The only other electric boats I know are widebeams, I don't know anyone with an electric narrowboat.

  18. Widebeam boat owners might want to know how suitable their boats are for electric Ian?

  21. Not optimistic they are correct for my boat, yours will be correct for your boat once you have it and cruised to confirm them Correct but why would anyone build an electric boat and not fit lithium batteries? It makes no sense in this day and age
  22. So you can see the savings made on BP Pulse, 48 pence kwh using app against 65 pence a kwh using contactless. Guess what most EV drivers use? We also use Tesco's podpoint Rapids at 28 pence kwh. What it really means is that with sensibly charging you can save a fortune on charging out and about and be way cheaper charging at home
  23. I converted my boat for very little money, but I am an engineer and was happy to use secondhand and new components. 3 years plus on and it was the right decision, My car is an EV and again the right decision And again most long distance drivers are using special apps like bonnet to reduce those chargers, or the car makers app to reduce prices
  24. Look at the date I charged, I am way ahead of you in this respect as I have an EV, also that report has been withdrawn by the RAC. You can tell an Ospray charger by the absence of cars charging unless they have the bonnet app
  25. They can say what they want the reality is something different. We needed a rapid charge 48p a kwh from a BP rapid, we get 5 miles kwh do the sums screenshot to prove cost
