    Unusual windlass? (photos)

    An adjustable throw windlass, long through for the heavy paddles shorter for winding them down again, adjust it so you don't catch your knuckles on the beams. The one s I had were fitted with a double head to fit both size spindles. Just been out and cant find them so I may have given them away. They were advertised in one of the canal magazines about 15 years ago.

    When do you run your engine?

    Wasn't there a posting here some time back from someone moored in Birmingham who was subject to a noise complaint and the council were investigating.

    Very true, it will layer out in the radiators so you will get hot and cold bits

    Webasto central heating antifreeze amount

    But what are its anti freeze properties if you are not a live aboard? If I was using automobile antifreeze I would buy ready mixed rather than putting tap water into the system

    Isnt this what people who buy houses near the canal use to get it made no mooring areas by their houses. Are we playing into their hands here saying running our engines causes a nuisance and maybe shooting ourselves in the foot

    When do you run your engine?

    If you need 4 hours a day then I would suggest that 2 hours in the morning and 2 at night is the best way to go, especially if you have solar this time of the year, as you may not need those evening hours if you get a good day. If I stop on 48 hr moorings I need to run my engine sometime after my first night moored.

    Preventing Condensation

    Providing you have the required amount of high and low free ventilation you can put in what you like

    Preventing Condensation

    Bit difficult to comply the BSS ventilation requirements with that system
