  1. Good news: Victron have got back to my supplier (Springwood Haven Marina, who have been very helpful throughout). They have tested the units and it is indeed a fault within the 4.01 firmware. This will be fixed in the next update.
  2. You're right of course that some people who are far from sane have no perception of this at all, including those who suffer the most from mental illness. Sadly for them, having this kind of self-knowledge is the beginning of a journey towards well-being.
  3. It is an important part of our lives, though more immediate with some than others. It's interesting that you say "just about everybody thinks that they are sane and normal". I would have said the opposite. I certainly know that I am neither sane, nor normal, though the latter particularly isn't so important to me. Perhaps it is the setting and environment I grew up in, as well as my social group which makes me think this. I wouldn't class anyone I know as normal or completely sane and I'm sure most of them wouldn't either. Though sane itself is a relative term anyway, usually meaning "normal relative to one's society". I think there is certainly a more healthy way to be, psychologically, than that.
  4. Yes but does it fill? Probably not at the moment.
  5. + Wrenbury Whitchurch Delivery Office (though not Whitbury post office).
  6. I'm not offering advice, but trying to understand what happened and why. The story given doesn't make a lot of sense to me, hence the questions arising.
  7. Yes because the lock is North/South facing so closing the bottom gates would be blocking the sunlight. Why would someone choose to fix his tiller, while looking through the weed-hatch (?) , with reduced light?
  8. Will there be a time-lapse of it sinking a third time? ?
  9. Glad to hear it! ?
  10. They should perhaps stress the point that you actually need to walk more than 50ft from the car-park which is where ~95% of forest visitors stay. Not that I'm complaining. It's great to only see a few people while out walking.
  11. I have my replacement but the buzzer only worked for a few seconds then went quiet like the rest of them. I can't hear it from 6 feet away. It seems Victron have a problem which I hope is fixed in future units. Not sure where this leaves us.
  12. This from a survey carried out last year on a 17 year old boat: I wouldn't touch a 20 year old, overplated narrowboat with a barge-pole! Unless it was ridiculously cheap, meaning I could sell it easily at the end of the 2 years.
  13. Yet the Oxford English makes no mention of the word "moan": https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/whinge Nor does dictionary.com: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/whinge
