    Wheelock Lock No.65

    Could well be. This book looks quite interesting. https://www.reprintuk.com/books/a_brief_history_of_the_windlass

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    This looks like it will meet the requirements. 50 amp. cont / 5Kva fault current. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GALVANIC-ISOLATOR-115V-AC-230V-AC-50A-CONTINUOUS-Made-in-UK-Model-E936/230627220329

    Where should we go from Norbury Wharf

    You could do the 4 counties ring and a trip up the Macclesfield.

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    Go back to post 13 where I asked if the Safeshore 70-100 amp Gi's were ok. The answer from Wotever was NO. The bottom line it would appear is that any Gi with a fault current rating of under 4600 amps is not fit for purpose.

    BMC rocker cover replacement.

    I can't see any reason why it shouldn't fit as it uses the same gasket. Why not contact the seller and get the dimensions including the fixing hole spacing to re assure yourself.

    Newly fitted Webasto Firing ok but No Hot Water

    Don't you have the silencer on the Webasto exhaust ? Mine is very quiet, inside & outside of the boat.

    So the Safeshore one at 70 amp nominal is OK and Wotever is wrong to say that it's not.

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    Yes but these Newmar ones are rated at 30-50amps so how come the Safeshore ones rated at 70-100amps are no good.

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    So none of these 70 to 100amp GI 's are any good then, please explain why? https://safeshoremarine.com/products/

    Plug in Galvanic Isolator.. which one

    500 amp is more than adequate, 100 amp would be fine though. I suggest you get one with a status monitor.

    Newly fitted Webasto Firing ok but No Hot Water

    As long as you like. Don't shut it down when it goes to half heat, leave it running. It may shut down at some stage and restart after a short period when the system cools slightly. You need to get a valve in the caloifier circuit and then balance the system.

    Any liveaboards in Liverpool?

    I stand corrected. When I was in Salthouse Dock in September I recall there were about a dozen permanent moorings opposite the visitor moorings. They all were fully occupied.

    Any liveaboards in Liverpool?

    I suggest you contact Peel Ports, I think they own the docks. I think CRT only administer the visitor moorings. Good luck.
