  1. Announcement expected circa 11:30 today
  2. I’ve read somewhere that Diesel bug grows more on moist tank walls, so keeping it full reduces the surface area of the exposed walls. With aircraft, the drain is to remove the water directly as this could cause engine failure - never heard a pilot worry about microbial growth

  4. Was thinking about changing our regulator (just a single type), but wonder for any regulator are there any indications of the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ ones, or are they all much of a muchness other than cost?
  5. Long shot, but had a power issue on our webasto - turned out to be dirty terminal on one of the blade fuses
  6. Installed does not mean fixed, if my understanding is correct, installed can mean ‘connect for use’, ‘place in position’ - of course that doesn’t necessarily mean it is how the BSS interprets it
  7. We have an LED light, but is positioned so that the lamp itself is hidden partially from oncoming boats by the top of the catch cover, and is aimed slight right & upwards and gives a good illumination of the tunnel wall & ceiling. Was once chastised by an oncoming/passing boater saying my light was hidden...

  9. The plug has the ‘pins’ and the socket the ‘holes’. The socket should be on the cable coming from the shoreline and connecting to you boat - I.e. when disconnected you shouldn’t have ‘live’ pins (only the holes are live) does that make any sense or have I just confused further?

  12. Welcome aboard and hope the outing went well Welcome aboard and hope the outing went well
  13. For many years we have had a (Rutland 913) wind turbine and a 100w solar panel. In that time, my experience as follows: Noisy, not a problem during the day but too noisy to leave running during the night (it was above our bed. Tried various methods of trying to make it quieter - nothing worked. In the end, bought a new controller from Rutland which allowed you to switch it off (which in effect applied a brake) - this saved having to lower it every night. Don’t worry about the noise for other boats - no real noise outside, it is inside where you hear it. we are just holi
  14. Guess it will depend on which model of Cello TV. We have a 12v Cello (about 2 years old) and it does support Freeview and Satellite - we just plug in a satellite dish/LNB - no need for the set top box. Not sure if it is strictly ‘freesat’ - but does show the free channels on Astra. The ‘satellite programme guide’ could be easier to use... but it does work
