  1. Yes, that in in hand, I won't be asking anyone other than Kevin Knight if I can help it. 😍 There were four batteries in the bow and four in the stern plus the starter, and the charging is through the starter battery (in layman's terms). Now we have two in the bow and three in the stern plus starter. There is a black box under the sink. I'm not going there, it's all too much........
  2. SORTED problem identified. In the deepest recesses of the boat lurked two f****** batteries linked by hidden passages to my nice new agms. They boiled, they heated, they expelled hydrogen sulphide, and they were determined not to give in. My new batteries are on overnight charge, time will tell, are they dead or alive 🤣 Thank you to those who kept the faith, and who contributed positively, you know who you are. Jo
  3. I keep telling the guys on here that I can't actually provide the info they require. I can change the battery reading by turning off and on the seven or eight isolator switches. But I will try to get the multi meter working. Though I know that from readings overnight that the bows are at about 11.5, the stern are all fully charged, at least as much as I can because the engine is running about four hours per day. If it was a simple system it would have been sorted by any good electrician, but I cannot judge the quality of an electrician by just chatting. I have gently
  4. I get complaints if I ignore the regular abusers, so I promised to read everything on one particular post, so all I got was abuse from those I have on ignore. Nothing that could be helpfull just abuse. I don't know why these people even exist, the planet would be better wthout them. You note that I rarely name names, but that idiot PD is typical, what he thinks he is doing other than being a complete prick is beyond me. The others who posted are those who know I have them on ignore, but they don't like being ignored. Obviously one of these people wil report the post,nand I will be b
  5. I won't be back. Just look at posts by wanker PDsomething, someone who obsesses , who has never met me, but who goes around talking about who I am, what I do, it's just beyond normal.
  6. Stalking is a criminal offence and being abusive and obsessive title tatting is a complete pia, there are so many nasty people on here it's beyond unreal. Folks think boating is fun, well I can tell you some people on here need to zip their lips.
  7. I don't read Alan's posts, and I wish he would not comment on mine. I am prepared to have a big battery bank and keep the figures up to the best they have been in the past, I know the voltage will drop over 35ft direct, I have no reason to think the cable size is an issue, its been there for twenty years. I don't think there is any reason to replace it, or an electrician would have suggested it. That is their job, they know the batteries should be at the stern, I know it, everyone knows it by now. Let's hope no one goes down this route when fitting out their boat.
  8. See your above abusive post to se why you are on ignore, not constructive. Do you suppose I have just posted so eedjits like you can hurl abuse at me, in fact Chagall pointed me in the right direction, ie the immersion water heater has been on for some indeterminate time, it is now off, and two of the three labels will be will be changed from heater to immersion, though I won't forget it now. Electrician had his head in the wiring box for a couple of hours, worked out what was happening, he's an electrician, if it took him two hours, do you wonder it has taken me two years?
  9. I've found them, just let cat out as I'm on a newly constructed road, with a grass verge, obviously more concerned about him than if in a field, but he is sitting on the boat. He used to live in Glasgow, as a stray, so he should be wary of traffic. I'd hate anything to happen to him.
  10. He's happily married with a ready made family of grandchildren, he'll never be rich, but he sems to like dabbling in various businesses, his car is something weird, think Grunge Allegro, that is his main business I think: customising cars and sorting classic cars, all a but of a mix. Boats are just a diversion.
  11. It's the difficulty of testing the batteries with a multimeter I cant access all the batteries, it takes half an hour even to get at them, I never use a multimeter, I don't know if it still works, I can't be sure how it works. I have an LED voltmeter at the bow batteries, at this exact moment they are showing 12.25 the engine has been off for 90minutes, they were 10.6 this morning at 5.00 am, engine on for about seven hours. I will move the boat again on to some cat friendly moorings tomorrow, that should be another four hours, hopefully some sunshine. The LED seens to be the m
  12. Somehow all the ducks got in a row two weeks ago, and the immersion heater has been sucking power of the batteries. This Co incided with my plan to do laundry on a daily basis, using more hot water than usual, you could not make it up There are at least four heating systems on the boat, and something which is black box, under the sink, freeze preventer. The immersion switch is so labelled, but later up the line to the batteries it becomes Heater, I assumed this referred to Webasto, but apparently not. I think I might invest in a label maker,
  13. Omg, you are suggesting ammending ColRegs, that won't work the boaters who use commercial canals will be laughed out of court, Long blast, I'm going through One short blast I'm turning to std Two short, I think of a drink, Double to port Three short, operating reverse propulsion, this is usefull if you are faffing about and another boat comes up behind you. I used long blast when I was creeping out of a marina today, I was out of sight of anyone on approach or passing. I rarely use turn to Stb or turn to port, but it's best to make your intentions clear if ther
