  1. Chimney chain

    Check your messages please.
  2. Braunston Historic Boat Rally

    We usually park in the 2 for £10 pub car park in our van and kip there.
  3. Chimney chain

    They came separately. I’m no expert but I’m fairly confident that they are genuine.

    Of course.

    Yes I have one to sell plus a few spare links.

    What would the going rate be for a genuine WW2 9/10 link chimney chain?

  9. Anyone know...can an oil fired range run on Red Diesel?

    We have a heritage range on our boat which runs on red diesel. We’ve lived aboard this particular boat for 4 years and it’s worked perfectly providing heating, cooking and hot water. We have it serviced every 12 months.
  10. AGM versus Gel batteries

    I’ll soon be looking to replace our battery bank which is 3 x 200ah Victron AGM batteries. The current batteries are about 10 years old and for the last 3 1/2 years we’ve been off grid. Our charging regime consists of a built in 9kva generator, 300w solar and 140amp engine mounted alternator. The inverter/charger is a Victron multiplus 3000/120. The inverter is on 24/7 as it powers a 240v AAA rated fridge and a diesel fired range which provides cooking, heating and hot water. I’m more than happy with how the Victron batteries have performed and would be happy to replace like for like. However the Gel version are slightly more expensive and according to the Victron figures would give a longer service life. Could anyone tell me which is likely to be more suitable given my circumstances?

  12. Reverse polarity

    I have a Honda EU20 portable generator which is used for battery charging. When this is plugged into the shoreline socket the reverse polarity indicator light illuminates. I have read elsewhere on a motorhome forum that this is caused by the generator Earth not being tied to the neutral line. If this is the case do I need to make up a correction lead with the Earth and neutral tied?

    My wife was shortlisted last year in the same competition with this photo of Ilford. She didn’t win but was flattered to have been shortlisted given the number of entries submitted. The award ceremony was held on HQS Wellington.
