  1. I would guess that the alternaters are one charging the domestic bank and one charging starter, unless they have been combined. Travel power are awesome they run off your isuzu. There is a large alternater looking thingie that runs through a magic box and gives you pure sine throughout the boat whilst engine is running, there is a kit for the isuzu so no problem. Not only can you do washing machine etc whilst cruising or running engine the other major benefit is that all the charging from your 12 volt altenaters/s is used to fill batteries rather than run electrical appliances. Best bit of kit we have ever had on two of our boats. I know a chap who can supply and fit the whole thing for you if you wanted.

  3. Blimey, in short how much do you want to spend??????? You need new batteries cheapo sealed are my faves. I would deffo bin the Stirling stuff and replace with mastervolt which is way better consumption wise. With that engine fitted I would have a Travel power added, its a straightforward fit and is a fantastic bit of kit at the top of our list when boat buying. We never turn our mains appliances off overnight when out on the cut without shore power and run without problem off 4 leisure batteries.

  6. Yes I do mean bags, rope etc etc. First port of call for a shuddering in gear. With luck you might find its that?? Have a good feel around everywhere and shaft in case its rope and drifted down. Even the best of us have known to miss that!!

  12. Completely agree, its actualy parr for the course for many. I believe there are even marinas that dont bother paying their access fees to CART etc and just trade under a similar name 🙄
  13. Yes, quite. I recall that when we first became liveaboards when we had a leaking cauliflower actualy second boat as first didnt have one, or a leaking water pump I used to do various repairs with kits and or solder, etc etc. Whilst it can extend life I find life is too short and I was always expecting something to fail hence for the last several years we just replace with new. When I bought the present boat it had a slight weep and I started messing about and then thought better of it and replaced the cauliflower, living aboard aint cheap and never has been.

  16. My Udson had a fuel gauge as tanks are in a ridiculous position and very slow to fill. An atrocious design fault.
