    Appropriate solar

    Also walk on, really means in soft shoes. Just because you can walk on them, doesn't really mean you should.

    Tv licence dilemna

    You can still have a TV and legally not have a TV licence. It’s receiving broadcast TV and now Iplayer that you need the licence for.
  3. In winter the pound will still be navigable and your boat will still be level. As the closure is planned they can inform the boaters on what water levels are expected in these pounds. I’ve heard on the towpath rumour mill is that they will turn the supply off completely.
  4. What would they refuse the license on tho?
  5. CRT shouldn't have been surprised on the obvious basic questions you have been moored there and be in contact with you all regarding. It's sh1te customer service that they haven't. They can't predict the weather of course, but they can communicate with you on what they plan to do and expected estimates.

    Sizing a solar installation

    Get as much solar as roof space you wish to give it up for. Don't bother with calculations on how much you will need as solar is a hit and miss affair and what you calculate you need won't be correct for the other 6-8 months of the year.
  7. When we had the breach in Leeds my home moorings was affected and inaccessible for around 3 months (due to the dredging). I just stayed put in the centre of Leeds, had nothing from CRT regarding me staying put. Was winter tho. I would take offence (and would tell them that wasn't acceptable) if I wasn't able to get back to my home moorings and had to keep cruising because of it.
  8. I would complain to CRT about the lack of communication, all moorers on the effected section should really have received a communication (letter/email, etc.) at the same time of the stoppage notification and what the plan is and how it will affect the permanent moorers .

    Is that just playing with balls? If so then I can confirm if I play with my balls it usually makes me happy.

    Slow Down!! "I Can't!!"

    Wouldn’t a big prob, which probably means he has a oversized prob be worse for rivers as you wouldn’t be able to get the full range and power of the engine?

    Spot the issue

    Update... Its been modified..... Note that we have been lower than a B♭this week at times due to the water shortage so it does still get trapped as you can see from the photo.

    Interesting blog making the case for Li-ion

    Depends on the BMS. Victron's BMS turns off the MTTP using the remote cable and the same with the load relay. The alternator is wired via the starter battery still, so basically it disconnects the battery link. Victron do another BMS thats on the negative side that links the batteries and charging stuff rather than remote devices, but it's limited to 200amp and 100amp alternator.
