    Anchor stowage photos please

    I have got no photo so imagination required I made a T shape with decking wood, elevated it with rubber door stops, and this is at front end of roof with anchor, chain length & line laid on it .

    Anchor stowage photos please

    anchor should be deployed at front which is higher than stern to minimise risk of stern being pulled under.

    Bugsworth basin

    Well planks removed and basin now open so it begs the question did the level in the basin drop due to the leakage ?

    A wise person has separates. Separate inverter if needed and a separate battery charger.All eggs in one basket is not a good idea when one has a problem.

    Heat from engine

    Now i have ideas to consider i will need someone to do the pipework on the South Oxford. I think my system would be a manual switch for fire circulation pump and a heat exchanger .Cheers all.

    Heat from engine

    Expansion ? i have a good size header tank with plenty of room for expansion. Heat exchanger ? sounds good bot would need to trigger pump to run or another pump.
  13. Present set up is a Webasto feeding radiators own pump. Stove feeds same radiators with a temperature controlled pump Common Antifreeze system with Header tank high up. Question could engine hot water system be commoned into this ?
