    From the sound of it the OP wants company rather than help. However: Most boaters will raise a paddle to help a following boater. So, if the OP is single handed and follows a boat with crew then he will get an easier time.
  2. How to take the shine off a good day's cruise.....

    Can't remember the name of the pub that was selling Barms for a quid but my mate visiting wouldn't believe me when I explained they were rolls/batches/cobs/baps. He's originally a Londoner. Barms £1 was written on one of them yellow cardboard stars and pinned close to the optics. He was sure it was something to drink until I asked the barmaid what was in the barms and she gave options for the fillings.

    Did you find the Legion?

    Yep, you can ask for a cob all over the midlands, not just in the Black Country. You ask for a Tea Cake up here in the North, or a Barm over Manchester way. (Tea cakes don't have currants in. If you want a tea cake with currants, you have to make sure you ask for a tea cake with currants)

  6. Controller/regulator advice for solar panel

    Thanks for the help and advice, very much appreciated. Went for 20A controller off bimble with MT50, and 150W solar panel off eBay. It's more than I need for now, but perhaps it means I can occasionally run my fridge in summer and at times not have to run the engine until I move after a fortnight. The winter is probably an odd time to be fitting one but there's a few days of occasional sunshine to be had. I think I'm going to need new batteries by summer. So at least I can learn better how to monitor my batteries and then hopefully be prepared to get the best out of a new set when I change them (If that makes sense?) I'll let you know how I get on with the panel and gadgets. thanks again glenn

    Ha, thanks, not misleading at all. Cheers. I'm in pub and thumbs are spelling how they wont. About to have an odd night where you have to go with it. Will be back tomorrow and do a bot more research. Thats good yea? Not to be confused with a taser
  8. Controller/regulator advice for solar panel

    Thanks smileypete and murflynn. I found this too for £78. Reduced from £140 and it's Baird Which is supposed to good stuff ? And going to up the panel to 150W. Which will be a tad better than 100w winter months? I'm going for stick on or screw down becuase i walk on roof alot being single hander. But still hope to step over it and not on it.
  9. Controller/regulator advice for solar panel

    Thanks for that idea. Just looking on internet at stuff now. I dont mind buying a bit more than I currently need to allow for any additional needs later. Cheers

    You mean this gadget? Is this a decent one?
  11. Controller/regulator advice for solar panel

  12. Controller/regulator advice for solar panel

    Thanks for that so the following will be ok, and leave me room to get another 100W panel should I want:

  14. How Many Straws To Break The Camel’s Back ?

    I've never understood the need to compare boating to driving, mooring to parking, car tax to boat license. The two are so far apart. Well, I thought so, which is why I choose boating.

    Oh, I did, sorry. Thought I was quoting Jess when he wrote a list. But we agree, so cheers.
