  1. We took the winter moorings at Devizes Wharf 2018/19, found it was very good and easy for the shops. If you need fuel,coal or any thing else from chandlers Victoria & Spencer from The Boatyard will deliver by truck as they can't get the fuel boat Aquilon up that way due to stoppages.
  2. Don't forget to pot in a correctly sized fuse near the batteries.
  3. You should be putting a bit of the silicon grease into the seal every hundred hours or so. if you are going to change the seal you may notice that the new Vetus seals don't seem as robust as the old ones. Others on this forum recommend changing this seal for this one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/282569986576
  4. These signs used to appear at this location when I was up that way back in 2018, so nothing new.
  5. I have a Vetus 95kgf b/t on my 60 X 11Ft wide beam, its ok but not very good in strong side winds (Its not working at the moment as it seems to have something jammed in the tunnel, OMG how can I steer the boat in a straight line now?????).
  6. You could try Marsh Farm near Hilperton, Moorings@HilpertonMarshFarm.co.uk. 01225 753082
  7. Red Diesel is around 60p at the moment, but it is still cheaper to use the Land Line than run the engine.
  8. Does your friend not have a manual they can read through to check for any setting? Is it possible that the batteries have got wired up incorrectly seeing as how two of them have been changed recently? Just asking.
  9. Caen Hill flight closed to all boating till further notice.
  10. Yes you probably will get condensation, we have this type of material fitted on our widebeam and get quite a lot, but it's no big thing to wipe it off.
  11. Now that's a silly thing to do?
  12. You could try taking a datum line across from one gunwale to the other then measure from there.
  13. We had this same problem so put some carpet on the floor under the bed curing the problem.
