  1. I believe this type of olive is known as a bite ring; used in hydraulics. They work differently to olives in that they form a bell shape on the end of the pipe. I can't find anything that small online but the link shows some larger ones. https://uk.rs-online.com/mobile/search.html?searchTerm=Bite+rings+
  2. I think it will just make the inverter controller think there's ample charge and shut down. That's my experience, anyway.
  3. Try googling "q-lon" or "q-lon door seal" Edit. Or qlon
  4. My boat was two pack primed when new. The deck areas are still in primer two years later with no ill effect. Can't help with the brand of paint, unfortunately.

    Like the leave campaign.
  6. Here's a post from a couple of years ago on using gun-grade foam:
  7. You'll find it's easier to apply the foam to the Celotex on a flat surface then press it into place.
  8. Yeah. Just ran a few beads of foam far enough apart that they would squash together and join up. I'm satisfied that there is ample protection against moisture but my steel work is primed anyway. I pressed the slabs into place and supported them with a plank until the foam had cured.
  9. I've used the 2 pack foam successfully in buildings but my choice for the boat was Celotex type boards (50mm) stuck with aerosol spray foam. The aerosols would be quite hopeless on their own. It would be very difficult to build up to the desired depth, it's open cell, and not dense enough. If using aerosol foam to stick and seal the boards, invest in a foam gun and use gun-grade foam (B1 fire-rated).

  11. I've worked in the double glazing trade since the '80s. We were always told to use butyl putty in wooden frames: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Everbuild-Butyl-Glazing-Compound-Putty-Window-Frames-Double-Glazing-BROWN-2kg/112259351327?epid=1704321545&hash=item1a232dc31f:g:aFkAAOSwQcJaEpON
  12. Is it going to be painted? If so, moisture resistant MDF could be suitable.
  13. Butyl tape. Lots to choose from: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m4084.l1311.R1.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.XButyl.TRS0&_nkw=butyl+tape&_sacat=0
  14. Solar circulation pump: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Solar-12V-24V-DC-Hot-Water-Circulation-Pump-Brushless-Motor-Water-Pump-3M-110/152600574418?hash=item2387b3f9d2:m:mTO7FHDmV17watyTMRB_tvQ
  15. Most baths have legs, so you could possibly gain around 6" by fitting the bath without them. That way you would only need to drop the floor 6" to achieve your desired headroom which may or may not be possible. You'd still need to deal with the drainage.
