  2. If I recall correctly Orianne is currently residing at Roger Fullers yard at Stone but there again I may be wrong just imagining it Chris Bantock Mk 2
  3. Not playing the scorecard walks away whistling
  4. As a broker I can assure you that none of the above was me .. I certainly do not not treat any Possible client like that sti I have standards . Treat everyone as I would like to be treated we don’t always get it 100% right but a I do try
  5. ”As a broker” .... you do realise that despite you have spent £xx k on it in the last three years it’s only worth £5000,00 to A blind man with no sense of smell and no mates to advise them . , Actually said to a chap who said it was worth 45k .. 1970/ 1980’s Harborough cruiser stern Fiberglass top .. last year

  10. Yes an easy mistake to make .. I just say ours "is the other one " lol
  11. You are thinking of the "other" Tipton Dave This one has been in the owners care for 30 years
  12. Going down the mains route now for sure , NO solar panel as a) I dont like clutter on my cabin top and b) I really do not need one Decent alternator / battery setup and all will be good for what we need However I will put a 12v computer fan in to aid with air flow .. top idea thank you
  13. Got one already Victron imo is reliable enough , however I do have a spare sterling inverter that I can bung in a box onboard just in case .. your comments Nick echo what I feel
  14. Planning the fit on Tipton and got to thinking of fridges ... I have always previously gone down the shoreline 12 v route and been happy ..but technology and kit changes along with our needs Tip will be built for boating and is not intended to be a long term Liveaboard so I was thinking that a off the shelf household fridge running off the victron inverter whilst not as power frugal as a shoreline is a dammed sight cheaper please convince me why or why not to go down this road ...I am open to all suggestions thanks C
  15. Having not been that way for a number of years where is the best and nearest overnight mooring for the northern end
  16. Give paul redshaw a shout at Braunston
  17. Slightly off topic but slightly relevant ... would a travel power kicking out 3kv be as efficient to feed a victron combi to support the 240 and charge the batts when boating than having a separate 12v alt for battery charging ???
