    Best small inverter to power 240V fridge

    Thanks for the replies it looks like I will be using the 3kw inverter on board 24/7 rather than having a dedicated one just for the fridge!
  2. Hello, I have purchased an A++ rated 240v fridge from ikea. It is rated at 0.5A and has a yearly consumption of 96kwh. I require a small inverter to run it does anybody have any recommendations? regards mitch

    12V Spot Lights

    Hello, After purchasing these LED lights on ebay they have started flickering after a few days of being installed. I did purchase similar ones about 2 years ago for my last boat which worked fine but I cant seem to get hold of any more! My latest solution is to buy MR16 holders and then 12V MR16 bulbs, similar so this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-4x-MR16-3W-5W-LED-Bulbs-SMD-Lamp-30W-50W-GU5-3-Spotlight-Replacement-DC12V-uk/152852858346?hash=item2396bd85ea:m:mnQtW7XRu0L9WQF7lAD_d4A It does say that a 12V driver is required but I assume this is for conversion from 240v to 12, however my question is will these work given the fluctuating voltage on a boat? If not does any body have any other suggestions as to a cost effective way of putting 12v spots in the boat as I have already drilled 30 holes in the ceiling of my wide beam!! Regards Mitch

    Isuzu 55 Oil

    Hi Tony thanks for the info but exhaust gasses in coolant is a sure sign. Cylinder head taken off already and it was clearly blowing across 3 of the 4 cylinders

    Isuzu 55 Oil

    Hello, After changing the head gasket on my Isuzu 55 I need to change the oil as I am sure there is a load of water in there. 15w/40 API CD is specified but is there something I can purchase over the counter (euros or similar) as I am looking to change the gasket this weekend depending on this weather! Thanks Mitch

    Thank you very much I have seen that plate but it’s been sprayed over so will try and scrape it off. Thanks
  12. Hello, The head gasket on my isuzu 55 engine has gone and was on the phone to the guy at quayworks to try and buy a gasket kit, however he needs to know if its a 4LE1 or 4LE2 which is apparently stamped on the block but I cannot find it anywhere?? Mitch

    Refleks stove lighting

    Thanks for the replies I think it was just a case of too much fuel in the pot as I came back the next day to try again and it was burning lovely! I did have a bubble stove in my previous boat but much prefer the refleks
  15. Hello, installed a refleks stove in my boat today, it got so hot that my flue has changed colour and the top plate actually turned red. I pushed the latch down on the control valve, held the valve in until the thermocouple got hot and set it to number 1, and it was red hot after about 10 mins, is there anything I am doing wrong? regards
