  4. Sorry.... My phone is very limited and I didn't realise it had already been posted. Please ignore.... 😳
  5. I've just put a link in this section...to a comprehensive article about overplating. You may like to read it....
  6. This makes for sobering reading. https://www.iims.org.uk/the-dangers-of-overplating/?fbclid=IwAR3yy0NuKt6avkd4q1AdINCFeClXg5SwKOh95AGOevLpRZz1YTblGRBEFA0
  7. As I said previously.....I was ok for about five week on the Thames.. couldn't feel better....but then became very ill with a helicobacter infection.... commonly caught from contaminated water. This was confirmed by hospital tests. Interesting this article just appeared: https://www.mylondon.news/lifestyle/food-drink/youtuber-feels-ill-after-catching-21709117
  8. I can't be definitive about this but : last year I did a Thames run for two months. Towards the end I was getting horrible acid indigestion and reflux. It got worse and I was chewing my way through boxes of Rennies. When I left the boat the problem carried on until one night I was ambulanced to hospital with a bleeding ulcer. I stayed there for a week while it settled and tests concluded I was suffering from helicobacter pylori...a nasty but common infection often caught from contaminated water. It is the most common cause of ulcers. As I said....not definitive...but timing wise I have my suspicions. 🤔
  9. My thoughts exactly... You don't want your engine compartment filling with carbon-me-backside. I'd put my hand over the outlet...and blow...and make sure it's sealed...
  10. Silly I know ....but : it says charging and AC available.... I've got a manual landline switch over i left my battery charger in circuit when i was not on the landline....and turning the Inverter on...starter charging the batteries. Trouble was...I was charging them from themselves...so it read 14.2 volts....but they were dying !.

  13. When I leave my boat for a period of time...with only solar....I link both battery banks with some jump leads.
  14. I would have thought that running thrusters continually while in a lock...some being very slow....the batteries would be out before the boat 😄
  15. I had this with my pump out pipes and also the vent pipe that never got touched by anything. I argued with Leesan that the dry vent pipe had gone porous and stank with a strange sweet odour...they said it couldn't. I cut a six inch section and posted it to them to smell.. They never replied.
