  2. I don't think you are if you insist the controller will take 2 or 3 times rated power. What model of solar controller do you have please?
  3. Post a link to the manual for your exact model of controller please, and more details about your solar array - what is the maximum voltage the way it's wired? I've installed quite a few Epever controllers and I've not yet seen one that can handle 2 or 3 times rated power. All of them can be overpanelled within voltage limits, but they do specify the maximum wattage allowed.
  4. Nah, there's room. Just. Had to reverse out and pull the tiller pin though, having removed the solar before even trying ... and mines a low boat!
  5. Many of them didn't have a propeller so it wouldn't have mattered!

  7. Especially if they are open-topped bins not covered ones ... All you'd need is a lifering as a seat and a roll of paper in your pocket.
  8. Liveaboard rental usually. Trying to rent a week at a time without letting anyone know would indeed be difficult. CRT now regularly check Airbnb which certainly used to be a common way of doing it. Like many things, doing it legally and properly adds significant costs. Many that do it under the radar just buy a boat and charge someone £xxx a month without ticking the boxes.
  9. Yes. When I took the boat down that side arm, a woman ran out of the cafe to tell me I was going the wrong way. This wasn't news, as I'd just come up from the basin, but she couldn't understand why I like going to rarely used nooks and crannies. Mind you, neither does MrsBiscuit, she just puts up with it! Shame there's no boats there. Is the Caldon closed at the moment?

  11. Nah, it's ages away yet. I was just thinking that @Midnight could check when they are planning to shut Yorkshire again - although of course the plan doesn't allow for the emergency stoppages ... The other useful thing about early planning is that it helps CCers decide where they might like to either head for or avoid over winter. If a favourite area has limited or no access to services it's handy to know before the stoppages happen.
  12. It's that time of year again! The draft winter stoppage list is available for comments. CRT won't always change their mind, but are usually receptive to altering timings a bit if there is a sensible reason for it. Public consultation schedule 2022 9 May – draft notices published for public to comment on 3 June – deadline for submitting comments (first round) 4 July – revised notices published for public to comment on 29 July – deadline for submitting comments (second round) 15 August – final winter maintenance programme published. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/winter-stoppages

  14. That's kind of what I was saying above. It's bad to tip urine in the cut because it's an excellent fertiliser. The ones who do tip it in also tend to be the ones who complain most about CRT not clearing the weeds too!

  17. Increase it, but not as much as nitrate and phosphate runoff from fields - the ones the EA don't even bother investigating anymore. Be a pest round the prop!
  18. Yes, and cassette users too. Most "composters" are at least aware they shouldn't tip urine in the water, because it is a potent fertiliser if nothing else. When you go past a long line of moored boats you can see who tips where - big nettles for land tippers, big water weeds for water tippers. I suppose on rivers it saves the water company some effort!
  19. Thank you Brian. I shall use this in the future, if only to confuse others!
  20. That's why there's three different categories of report. Calling someone a spammer for a title typo seems a bit harsh, as does claiming they've breached forum rules. The "for another reason" seems the best option ...
  21. Or no ( or a broken) expansion tank. But doing that without plumbing it overboard is crazy. @RickS does your water pump kick in at intervals when the taps aren't being used?
  22. It's easier for the mods if you just report the original post, for "another reason."
  23. For general handling, nothing. I have two centrelines, one each side, attached to raised handrails. The lines do need to be securely attached though as they often get used for "strapping" the boat to a halt. I'd not use any variant of a centreline for mooring though, except perhaps as a very slack "belt and braces" insurance line.
