  7. reminds me of people who claim to "build their own house". Turns out in 99% of cases that they commissioned a builder to build a house. not in my dad's case. In 1951 he bought a one acre plot of land on the edge of the green belt in Surrey and installed a caravan on site. That was our home for 8 years while he struggled (assisted by Mum, and later by me and my bruvver) to prepare the site and then to design and build a substantial 4 bedroom house during summer evenings and every weekend. Concrete and mortar was mixed on site, much of it by hand. The only trades he contracted out were plumbing, electrics and roofing, plus an architect to approve and sign his drawings. Scaffolding was telegraph poles set in concrete supporting steel tubes and boards. During several long cold dark winters he transferred his efforts to dismantling and rebuilding a 1938 Riley 1.5 saloon.

  9. they don't mix too well. drunken lock operation is not for the faint-hearted.
  10. molecular weights: air - a mixture of : O2 ... 32 N2 ... 28 CO ... 28 effectively the same in practice, so the molecules just mix indiscriminately ........... in still air there will be a marginally higher concentration at high level.

  16. agree, but the consequence of thin cables will be a delay to reaching float mode. I guess that many folk rely on their solar to keep the batteries charged up while the boat is unoccupied, not to charge them from a seriously depleted condition. 'orses fer coarses.
  17. absolutely. my 75A MPPT is about 3m away from the batteries, I have 300W solar. my batteries show a constant 13.9V when the MPPT indicator LED indicates charging has gone into float mode. the cables are 6sq.mm.

  25. the word useful is shirley very pertinent here. perhaps the solution is for all winter moorings (many/most of which are just used as boat storage facilities) to be miles from anywhere, i.e. not useful for the genuine cruising boatowner.
