    12v battery or do i go 6v

    Always cheapos, no rewire needed and just keep them sensibly charged and will last couple of years anyway. But what do I know I only live aboard full time for yonks.

    Trojan batteries can easily be trashed in three months Ditchie. How old are they and how well looked after? Just sayin like. 😀

    Opinions on a 60' trad for sale?

    Ahh good. At first view that looks all fine but prices don't make sense? 45 foot lined 38k and 57 foot 39k ? Only a grand for twelve feet? Or did I not read it correctly as I only scanned it?

    Opinions on a 60' trad for sale?

    I haven't looked recently but how much is a brand new sixty foot sail away now? This boat is 16 years old which may mean it's in fine fettle but equally could be a rusty pig. It's not much more than a sail away as all the kit is old now and the batteries may well be worthless, the inverter I have a spare brand new victory combi that cost me 300 quid etc etc. It is probably naff lining just covered in paint? I ain't seen it so may well be off the mark but 45 k it certainly ain't.

    I take it this engine is fitted in a proper boat shaped boat not in a glorified skip like many of us use over here?

    It's very simple. People just kept cycling on the towpath and as there are no resources to police it cart and bw before them simply let it continue as its by far their easiest option, much the same with hands free phone use age in cars.

    That's only fair innitt as boaters don't pay anything whatsoever to use the inland waterways system wheras cyclists etc pay quite a hefty fee.
