  5. Simples... If both boats are facing the same way then turn Sickle, then use her to tow Flamingo until you want to go back to base of or Sickle's problems return, then use Flamingo to tow Sickle back to base.
  6. Only if you touch the connections! If the diodes are conducting it will only be a couple of volts. However you are not confident working on electrics and aware of the precautions necessary then you should not work on them. If there was a mains fault, then the protection should have operated. The test is to see if the earth voltage is enough to turn the diodes on and cause galvanic corrosion, not to see if the mains protection is working.
  7. The test to see if the diodes are conducting by measuring voltage drop across them had to be done with the shoreline plugged in. It can be done after tests to prove the diodes are not open or short circuit, which are done with the shoreline unplugged has been completed.
  8. Ah, in that case one simply sets the multimeter to DC volts and measures across the input and output terminals. The reading should give the voltage dropped across the diodes. If it is zero then the diodes are not conducting.
  9. This details how to rest a GI, but ignores the fact that many GI's use a capacitor to pass high frequency AC harmonics. This capacitor needs to be discharged before using the multimeter to test on the diode test setting. To discharge the capacitor simply put a wire across the GI input and output terminals BEFORE using the multimeter. https://galvanic-isolator.co.uk/how-to-test-a-galvanic-isolator/
  10. I'll bet the hirers get a shock when they find the boat stocked with.alvohol free... 🤣😂
  11. But how will it comply with the need to move every 14 days... 🤣

  13. Reminds me of the old British Rail slogan of the 70's, "British Rail Is Travelling" to which I added "Very Slowly"... 🤣
  14. Overseen by the wooden man with his ball to signify the Atherstone Ball Game in the garden adjacent to.the second (or was it the third?) lock down.
  15. I thought they were always on holiday... 🤣😂
