  1. in the case of conventional Lead Acid leisure batteries in my experience sealed batteries may still require topping up, which can be done by removing the vinyl stickers and levering off the black plastic strip covering the holes above each cell. Maybe I'm wrong but I believe there is no difference in the batteries except that the cells in sealed batteries are more difficult to access. Of course if you leave the red plugs in place then they are sealed to the extent that they may explode (well ... leak badly at the least).
  2. yeah but ............. that just leaves you vulnerable to the suggestion that you don't actually know very much. ............... just sayin' πŸ˜‰
  3. not many rules and regulations are enforced in Modern England; mind you, DVSA operates an Enforcement Site in Abingdon, which somehow sounds a bit like a South American Nazi establishment. I wish they would enforce the rules affecting bikes and scooters. Happy Xmas everybody !!! https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.6695711,-1.3134402,3a,17.1y,56.91h,90.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRqCOQBX_pOuEVshL7K2URA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

  5. Mr Brown is not shy of describing his wife in excruciating detail - well that's how I read it anyway: "My wife thought that painting it like an underground train would only appeal to railway enthusiasts, but she's popular with all sorts. She has a real energy to her, lots of towpath users stop and ask to take pictures with her. She's called Wiggles because she has excess weight above the water line which makes her move around."
  6. at STP of course. nice to see someone using scientific dimensions properly. pedants' delight.
  7. I often have private conversations with my car. It never answers back and is always ready to absorb my explosive expressions of anger when other drivers act like frigging eejits. Best car I've ever had (Yeti 1.2 turbo petrol). I never said it was a big supermarket. It was a small supermarket. I don't like big supermarkets. I have no idea if the base of her shoes was soft or hard, although I suspect the former - soft soled sheepskin booties more than likely.

  9. This morning I took exception to a woman who was chatting away on her idiot phone while standing in the open doorway of the supermarket, thus preventing the doors from closing. My car said the outside temperature was minus 8C. God knows how many kWH were consumed just to accommodate her selfishness.
  10. .................... and this in the country that, history suggests, invented concrete more than 2,000 years ago.
  11. come on guys, it's no more difficult than trying to renovate a neglected Victorian terraced house in central London in a no parking zone. it only requires stripping out all the internal fitting out, excavation and repairs to the foundations including installing a DPC, removing all the damaged or failing plaster and lath, replacing all the rotten floor timbers and staircase, removing the roof tiles, replacing all the rotten roof timbers, installing underfelt and tiles, replastering walls and ceilings throughout, replacing the plumbing and wiring and then adding the finishing touches such as fitted furniture and storage, painting .......... ...................... well you know the rest .................. πŸ˜‰
  12. we're waiting for your response about the extent your experience of a narrowboat on the canals, if any. the plan and cross section drawings that you provided suggest that you don't even know the shape of a narrowboat.
  13. Highway Code applies - keep left at roundabouts, ignore navigation rules.

  15. why? the surge is the result of the coastal configuration (like any significant inlet), which if dammed would eliminate the underlying causes of surge.
  16. time for honesty - who has never ever done that?

  18. a bit like asking how long is a piece of string I'm afraid. IMHO there is only one factor that fixes the price of a boat - how much is the prospective purchaser willing to offer?
  19. 😎 .................. and it's not correct to write A/hrs or A/H or Amp/hours either; I (and possibly you) cannot find a way to divide a unit of current by time although Einstein may argue that he can (could).
  20. pedants corner - battery capacity is measured in Amp.hours, not Amps. a fundamental understanding of what is being measured should be an essential starting point before any meaningful discussion can take place.
  21. I used to use welding cables in such situations. Nice and flexible and easy to terminate with a large crimping tool. I would be interested to learn if that was bad practice.
  22. having spent 50 years in the construction industry I am enlightened to find only now that concrete sticks to paint. 😲 perhaps faeces and shovel is what you wanted to say but daren't. 😎
  23. well. I would never have guessed .................. 😏
