  1. This comes up every year. For over 11m boat you would need 5 of the Lidl ones. Unless the picture is wrong there is no A rating on the can so would be a BSS fail.
  2. But the BSS says plug, cap or valve. The BSS checklist (and your examiner) are wrong to require a plug. I agree it is not a big deal and might be good practice but a plug is not a requirement of the BSS.

  4. Even IP67 will not stop the enclosure breathing with changes in temperature. Very hard to stop condensation. You could try sealing the joints / grommets with silicone sealant or silkaflex.

    Doesn’t apply to Severn Trent though. As per another thread they regularly discharge raw sewage into the Trent and Mersey canal at Shardlow.
  7. Under RCD the “technical file” had to be kept for only 10 years, not always. Not sure what the RCR says.

  9. Stops when the battery voltage is too low to run it. Permanent damage will be to the battery bank.
  10. Ey up duck - Erewash canal ?

    Trent and Mersey canal Shardlow: 224 incidents last year where raw sewage was discharged into the canal. I remember watching the turds go by while I was painting the roof during the lockdowns. If you run out of cassettes ask Severn Trent for advice.
  13. I really loved the street food in Kolkata and “ate out”every day when there. We had an office in town but the local staff wouldn’t come with me because they used to get upset stomachs. I am from Nottingham so obviously immune. Had a boat trip on the river along with 50 staffers. Was invited onto the bridge and the skipper was fascinated that my narrow boat had a deeper draft than the trip boat.
