  1. As they say its their home and their towpath they pay for it and if it wasnt for them it would only be a muddy ditch
  2. Saw that on the Wey with a day boat he hit the bank quite hard. He rang the hire company and they said they sometimes stick in forward, make sure its in reverse before opening the throttle. If I hadn't been there I wouldn't have believed it
  3. Sounds like the cable snapped. Where it links to the gearbox try and move it with your hand
  4. I would suggest that what you do is bad practice, even visiting every two weeks, You only need the power to trip, the fridge will run as long as possible, say two day by which time the batteries are effectively as discharged as you would like to take them, the point where the fridge wont start again and will sit like that until next time you visit. On top of that the fridge will stink. However that is not as bad as leaving the inverter on as that would take the batteries down to about 11.5 volts and leave them there, quite a bit lower than a 12 volt fridge would. It happens
  5. If everyone had gone onto complete single isolation at the beginning or the outbreak and we closed all the boarders then the virus would have died out in the UK by now. But that level of isolation just isnt possible If everyone had gone onto complete single isolation at the beginning or the outbreak and we closed all the boarders then the virus would have died out in the UK by now. But that level of isolation just isnt possible
  6. You can if you can actually visit your boat, when its over I am wondering if I will be scrapping £600 of batteries, Maybe time to think Lithium
  7. But not every incident gets reported to them, even fires
  8. Try getting up to Llangollen and see if you meet the trip boat
  9. Or half a dozen board walkers seeing if they can open a gate without a windlass
  10. That is not very hard, good job its got its fenders down
  11. You may have been getting volts from the solar hard to say without knowing which cables were touching what at the time but positive and negative would have shorted the solar if it was still connected or the battery charger if it was still on
