    Oh Hell no

    The bit that failed - the pipe was also slightly blocked which probably didnt help things!

    Battery Care

    Ive had a look, but can't find much with the search function. Whats the best way to look after my 5 x 95AH AG batteries? How Often should i charge to 100%? Lowest i should let them discharge? To be installed shortly - Nasa BM2, smartguage, and 540w solar.

    Water tank

    recently been painted so no, not at this time. I'll get a bilge pump which has the advantage of leaving me with a spare if needed.

    Water tank

    Due to pick up my first nb in a couple of weeks - cant wait 😁 however the water in the bow tank is old and has a scummy film on top, so will need emptying. Whats the best way? empty via sink? fill with fresh till overflowing to remove scum then empty via sink? or another way?

    I should be getting my first nb in a couple of weeks all going well, and have started to think about what i need aboard. Apart from the basic chains/pins hammer etc what else is considered essential?
