  1. If you message Mads on the YouTube Sail Life channel he might advise you which structural engineer he used when beefing up the stringers on his yacht. It was all done by email I believe.
  2. Which can be found here: https://www.boatsafetyscheme.org/media/268789/ecp-private-boats-ed3_rev2_apr2015_public_final.pdf But there is an extra requirement now for CO detectors.
  3. A friend once kept a conservatory telesales person on the phone for about 20 minutes, enquiring about all the options and extras he could have with a new conservatory. At the end of the conversation he exclaimed genuine surprise that they could now be fitted to a 32nd floor flat in central Brum.
  4. As my late father-in-law was known to observe, “It’s not my world any more...”
  5. There will now follow a bunch of posts to explain why this is a BAD idea at this time of year.
  6. I can’t see why it would matter. The system pressure is the same throughout.
  7. They are. And just the same in person.
  8. Absolutely the normal way to do things. It’s then up to you to ensure that you do always have sufficient charge in those batteries. Get more solar. There’s no such thing as too much. Plus it’s a pain to charge them unless you have a bunch of VSRs.
  9. Oh no they weren’t Hey, it’s panto season. If they were wired in series you’d have 36V, 48V, or 60V, depending on whether you have 3, 4, or 5 batteries in the bank.
  10. More strands makes cable more flexible. That’s why many of us use welding cable when we need big fat cables. 70mm2 welding cable with 624 strands, or Oceanflex with 912 strands, or even some of the newer very flexible battery cable with 1330 strands is much more bendy than a cable with say only 200 strands.
  11. If no-one here knows then Onboard Energy will know and it’ll just take a phone call.
  12. That’s down to two reasons. Modern cable is ‘thin wall’, meaning that the insulation is both thinner and more flexible. Modern cars rely on a lot more relays to switch high currents devices, so the cables often carry little more than a signal current. Nobody has invented less resistant copper - it’s the same copper as we’ve used for a hundred years or more. That simply isn’t true. In fact, modern regulations have increased the size of cables for any given current rating compared to say 50 years ago.
  13. Tony Brooks has a great site with loads of useful info on it. This section would seem to be particularly pertinent for you: http://www.tb-training.co.uk/MarineE05.html#BATTERY CARE AND SERVICE
  14. Do use it if you want to build a credit rating. Simple possession of a card won’t do that.
