  1. They will go under Osney bridge but I would fold the screen down for that. A quick google suggest the screen down air draft of the Seamaster is 6ft 3in but that probably alter according to fuel loan and engine/gearbox fitted. Seems they will go under Potter Higham bridge (with pilot) and Wroxham (without pilot). Seems the Elysians/Meakes Maderias have a slightly lower air draft.
  2. and last time I looked ASAP Supplied gave the expected resistance reading for Euro & US gauge systems. Here you go: Typical Values Typical values for guidance only. Readings will vary from boat to boat ALL VOLTDROP TESTS Acceptable except charging systems 0.5V Ideal 0.3V Charging systems 0.3 Max but as low as possible GLOWPLUG CURRENT – per plug BMC1.5 type 6 amps steady but some now start high Modern Types Very high dropping to 12 amps when hot PRE-ENGAGE STARTER SO
  3. Seamaster 27 or Elysian 27 aft cockpit. Getting long in the tooth so should be a fair price but built like a brick built proverbial. Proper river cruisers and capable of a bit of estuary work if required.
  4. I think that I am qualified and experienced enough but do not consider my skill level as particularly high compared with some here. To be totally open I did used to run courses for boaters, RCR staff, and even a large hire company as a contractor, not as an employee. I ran many courses inside RCR's headquarters and have witnessed them dealing with customers and directing staff engineers and contractors to the jobs plus the availability of advice to their staff.

  13. As the Ebekunibastos don't seem to like running on low load/cycling I suspect you will be risking carbon problems.
  14. But Fertan does not remove rust. it converts (some of) it to iron tanite or some such. I would lay odds that if you did not remove all the rough stuff first it would not be effective and a waste of Fertan. I think Fertan works to a degree when used to neutralised the rust remaining in pits that wire brushes and disks can't remove. It seems more like it only converts a few microns of the rust surface to me.
  15. Ditto, you were faster but I think it may be of interest to many on here so it may stand.
