    Mooring

    as i drive over the bridge and see our boat after anything from 4 to 8 months away its always a happy moment. Even better if i have remembered the keys and the gate key. one year I got off the plane in london and then realised the car boat and gate keys were safely stashed in the safe at my work.

    Kids on Strike

    They went on strike here too after their parents drove them from their 21 square metre aircon houses in their 4 litre cars to their climate controlled schools.

    Dont quit . You speak much truth and honesty... frequently you say what i think. 24 degrees sun shining, back to boat and bad weather in a few weeks.

    12V distribution panel problems

    I have blue sea bladed fuse boxes. They are probably the most reliable bit of the boat.

    Harvesting free power

    I use thesame folding device to keep our van battery topped up in the australian winter. If i leave it on in the summer it goes well enough to put the engine start battery to 12.9 volts. That then dumps to the domestic battery via the red arc. Amazingly efficient for its size

    Keeping a non-shiny look

    We always used to use floor paint on the roof, it was fine. 3 years ago we repainted the roof in international floor paint, over raddle. It looked great until i cleaned up lister exhaust lumps with white spirit. ( a practice i have done for 30odd years) the paint softened and smeared. i ended up stripping off the whole of the roof with scraper and spirit, before re keying and painting with damboline bilge red.
