  1. Electrics - Inverter vs Transformers

    Does this mean no 12v wiring has been run?
  2. Morso v The Rest

    Getting back to the price of Morso squirell, remember that Midland chandlers will be having "Freaky Friday" soon. 20% off their price could be worth waiting for. This goes for any big ticket items. Cheers, Garry.
  3. Need new prop what make and size ?

    Best to gather as much info whilst out of water re existing prop and clearance, ring Crowthers, answer their few simple questions and let them give the best advice. Be ready for a small shock, My 22x22 prop is going to be 6 weeks in the making and £900 to pay. Sure it will be worth it tho. Garry.
  4. 12v LED lighting

    If you want a matching light fitting do you think a picture of the old one might help ? Just a thought.
  5. Dry Dock Rugby

    Hello, not a dry dock, however I just had a week at Yelvertoft on hard standing. Boat pulled out of water no crane. No problems working as late as you like, showers available on site, water point if you need it and really good pressure wash if wanted. No connection, just very happy customer. May be worth a call. Price was good. This was a much better experience than dry docks that I have used in the past.
  6. Boat painting options

    Hello, I have put this name up before. Robert Naghi, have a look at his web site. He will give advice and carry out work to any standard you choose and will travel to you if needed. No connection but thought this to be a good option. p.s looks like he does work for some well respected boat builders. Garry.
  7. Electric or hybrid

    Have a look for wide beam boat "Tulak" builders Elton Moss boats. This looks all electric. Canal boat mag Jan 2017
  8. How much gas does a pilot light use?

    Hello, we have the same water heater and also found high gas use when the pilot was left on. Have just checked the manual but no information on how gas much is used in stand by as it were. Here is their UK contact number, 01928 531870. If you have a spare five minutes a quick call would give definite answer. Garry.
  9. Recommended boat painters

    Hello, you could have a look at this painter. Robert Naghi. I have not used him but would consider doing so. Have a quick search on google and look at his site. His prices were good and he was happy to travel to you. cheers, Garry.
  10. What have you fettled for the boat today?

    Each to their own, projecting bolts, rivet washers, whatever makes you happy. Nice bottle of red in my case. It looks ok to me.
  11. Alternator / RPM reading.

    Thanks for reply Nick, It is connected to the W terminal. Will take a look at the back of rev counter on Friday. All seems pretty much as before, however it would still be good to check it's accuracy. cheers.
  12. Controversial widebeam continuous cruiser

    Oh, forget I said that.
  13. Alternator / RPM reading.

    Hello, your help would be appreciated. I have a Lucas type A127 70amp alternator. I have changed the alternator pulley diameter to help with charging at relatively low tick over 409 rpm and average 700/750rpm when on the move. Will I need to adjust anything to allow rev counter to give accurate rpm reading with the smaller pulley? If yes can you give advise? Thanks in advance, Garry.
  14. Controversial widebeam continuous cruiser

    Is there not a vat exemption if used as a home ? Must also need following up. No vat equals more to spend on fit out.
  15. How to get the right prop?

    Sorry, not good with links and things. Just tap 192224403880 in search box and item should be found.
