  2. Puffer Parts have just received a quantity of black 1250c deg. silicone, we haven't tried it yet so can't comment. ETA: No connection.

  4. True, I got a bit off track there, and I'm sober.
  5. Mind you I have monitored our 100 litre Lec 24v and it works out in the region of 16-18ah per day which is quite near it's claimed consumption. Edited double post
  6. A good quality inverter would increase 33ah to approx 36ah, not too bad really.
  7. I assume it wasn't allowed pre WW2, maybe canals were considered a transport link the same as roads?

  9. 4kw Villager Puffin is a very good smaller stove, very controllable though a bit fiddly, steel construction with cast iron doors.

  12. In WW2 Churchill gave permission for canal boats to use red duty free as they were contributing to the war effort so on that basis I can't see us hanging on to it indefinitely.

  14. With our boat (60'nb) when using full rudder at slow speed more water and therefore thrust is directed if I momentarily use full rudder in the opposite direction before turning the way I want.
  15. Same cetane rating though as far as I am aware though trying to ensure fame free is a bit of a lottery at the moment. Not sure about this but I think certain segments of the marine trade will be allowed to use high sulphur diesel via a special licence?
  16. Try putting it in a canal boat and see how efficient it is then.

  20. As I have said before a supplier of diesel has a duty of care towards his customers and if for instance a novice boater refuelled and wasn't aware he needed to declare 90/10, that is 90% cruising, and he asked the advice of the supplier he would be making a false declaration, to the disadvantage of HMR, at 60/40.

  22. Actually this isn't so since since January this year when all gas oil has to be ultra low sulphur (ULSD) the same as DERV.
  23. The vast majority of engines are equally efficient, more or less, hardly anything to choose between them, even vintage engines are efficient. Latest common rail engines are better though having very precise injection throughout the rev range. ETA: Of course all this is assuming the engine isn't under or overpowered and is correctly tuned.
  24. No way, Victron quote 95% for 48v inverter and that is the best figure there is though I would think Mastervolt will be similar.
