    Stern Tube

    OP did say "repacked" so I think it is safe to say he means the stern gland. Are there any re-packable stern tubes?
  3. You wouldn't want to be sat on the lav at the pump out though.
  4. You would think so wouldn't you but I pretty much always choose the fastest route. Also lots of times when I go rogue and and deviate from what the sat nav thinks is the fastest route and the ETA and remaining mileage drop significantly. So how can it have been the fastest route?
  5. I wish there was a way to set a minimum standard for the roads chosen by the sat nav. You often find that the machine chooses to take a crazy route down dirt tracks when there are perfectly good alternatives on real roads.
  6. Agreed. That's part of the service hirers pay the big bucks for. I didn't appreciate the boat was hired.
  7. Recently discussed in this thread /www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?/topic/101440-post-bcns-challenge-problems/&tab=comments#comment-2308957 Basically you need to lift the rams head and drop the end of the rudder stock into the cup on the skeg. Try removing the weed hatch then guiding the rudder stock into the cup.
  8. Just checking, you know now that you don't need the inverter on to run the 12V fridge and that the inverter is just there to change up the battery power to 230V AC for mains appliances?
  9. Googling " Dixell Prime " which is written on the unit in the photo suggests that it is a control for a freezer. Do you have a freezer under the bed? http://www.dixell.de/images/manuals/xr60d_en.pdf If not it is probably acting as a tank thermostat and may be controlling the eber remotely
  10. The magnets drop off too and end up in the elsan.
  11. There are things called flanged threaded inserts that are like pop rivets that have an internal threaded hole. You screw a mandrel the right size onto the tool, like a big pair of pliers then the insert on to this Close the handles and this squeezes the insert onto the material. remove the tool and you have a threaded hole. The downside is that you need the tool and the right size insert plus there will be a part of the insert remaining on the top of the material. https://www.sealey.co.uk/product/5637203453/threaded-insert-rivet-nut-m8-splined-pack-of-50
  12. The current doesn't flow through a clamp meter. You place the arms of the meter around a cable and it senses the magnetic field induced by the current flowing through the wire.
  13. That's good to know. Thanks Tony. I must be more careful who I listen to.
  14. You did check to see that the meter can measure DC amps I hope? Quite a few models just do AC I believe.
  15. It's not a good idea to run the engine with the "ignition" turned off. This can kill the alternator. How often have you done this?
