    Round pin sockets for 12V

    The sockets are rated 2 Amps at 240 Volts; i.e. 480 Watts. Surely this means 40 Amps at 12 Volts?

    Webasto heating problem

    OK thanks for that. I'm planning a two pipe system. Rather like series v parallel for batteries!

    Webasto heating problem

    Just out of interest, and because I'm just about to plumb in my own radiators, shouldn't the radiators have one side to the feed and one side to the return?

    Can we have a new rule

    Visitor moorings should be divided into sunny areas for solar power boats, and shaded areas for engine runners. The latter could sit in the gloom running their generators in their own little ghetto.?

    Hallmark 70ft is a maybe

    Thank you andyberg, they brought back many memories. Not least how the heck you put up the 2 folding beds into the space occupied by the deluxe cane furniture!

    Recommendations for vacuum cleaner

    Thanks nbfiresprite, just picked one up from B&M. Seems well built and quite powerful.

    Dave Clarke - that's the name I couldn't remember - was/is he in Peterborough? You're right about the poor design of rear door, steps drain into bilge- can never get dry bilge. I ordered and collected my boat from the agents in Yorkshire- Saville Town, Dewsbury.

    I have owned a Hallmark boat from new in 1998; a 45' cruiser stern. I was lucky to get the boat as they went bust soon after. It has served me well for 20 years. I had it surveyed in 2014 and the sides and baseplate are wearing well, with minimal pitting/corrosion. The shell was made by a Peterborough fabricator (cant remember the name). The fitout was cheap and cheerful, and over the years we've altered and improved a lot of things. The engine is reliable (Sole/Mitsubishi 3 cyl). It has been probably the best thing I've ever bought, and would sell now for more than I paid. There's a lot of snobbery about these boats but they introduced lots of people like me to the canals. I've never felt the need to buy a bigger or better boat. Having said that the price of the OP's boat is a joke!

    Barrow On Soar in the Snow

    I hope we get more drone videos here. After the reaction to my Foxton Locks video, I was reluctant to post any more. Here's Cromwell Lock the other day:
