  3. Mercia is "pricey" and is a very 'marmite' type of place.

  5. It is possible to overestimate the amount of heating needed. There are no radiators in my 70' boat, the cabin (about 35' long) is heated by a Refleks diesel stove while there is a traditional solid fuel stove in the (more or less traditional) back cabin, which I rarely light at all. The engine room is next to the bathroom and as I need to run the engine to heat the water, the bathroom is always warm when needed.

  11. I'm not certain if you mean Alvecote but if you do, I can't agree. I moored my 70' boat there for three years and had no problem getting in or out. Yes there are several boats per pontoon but there is more than 3 boats' width between pontoons.
  12. Thank you all very much. I'll have a go when next it fails to start.
  13. Tony, Just to be sure, am I to short the "main battery pos. terminal" to the "energise terminal" in your diagram? The engine is about 12 feet from the ignition switch, do I need to have that switch in the 'ignition' position while shorting or just in the 'on' position? The starter is directly below the gearbox oil cooler, so from a standing position I cannot see any of the above. I may be able to get down and see it but it will take some time, will this be a problem (ignition switch wise)? Thanks.
  14. Very grateful for the above but I don't fully understand it. Can you explain (in words suited to an idiot) what should be shorted to what. Thanks.
