    New Marina Likely To Get Planning Permission

    I expect Willingham Fen Marina will be very nice. Images on the interweb showing yachts and flybridge motor boats seem a little imaginitive.

    When do you run your engine?

    CO is an invisible gas. So not at all easily perceived. The composition of emissions from engine exhausts may not be undersood by everyone .

    The CO emissions from petrol engine exhausts are higher than from diesel engines.

    Replacing Flooded Leisure Batteries

    The petrol engined Ford model T in 1908 put an end to electric vehicles available at the time ....... according to the interweb.

    Replacing Flooded Leisure Batteries

    Yes I did get your drift. I think a lot of people who are not old will still have one of the old types of charger. I am fairly sure my old charger is one I bought from Halfords. And I am not elderly. 😁

    Why does it have to be an elderly friend or relative? What age is defined as elderly?

    Best type of insulation to use GRP

    Thankfully I have not had to take any windows out but the panels around the windows don't look like they are double skinned. But they are lined out with vinyl covered panel which includes some padding - probably some foam. example photos (not my boat) . .

    Best type of insulation to use GRP

    Not all parts on ours is double skinned. Some bits it just vinyl with a thin foam padding. I guess we should try using our mid cabin for sleeping over in cold weather as it is better insulated being beneath the main helm and saloon.
  12. You seem to like boats with big tanks!

    Best type of insulation to use GRP

    I don't think there is much insulation in my cruiser. Condensation is limited to colder months and is primarily only an issue occasionally and is generally on aluminium window frames and glass. Plenty of ventilation does help at any time of year and sometimes heating on with window ajar may be necessary.

    I am not convinced there is a problem other than the dud starter battery.

    Maybe not. And no usual. But possible.
