  1. Canal & River Trust Licence

    Hi Welcome. As long as your boat is on the hard you do not need a licence. Assuming you are wanting to licence 1 April - 30 September then just take out a 6 month licence late in March to run April-Sept, boat to be dropped in early April, then you will get the early payment discount. I would suggest (to be on the safe side) at end of September you let Cart know you are removing the boat from their water and that is why you are not renewing. That way you avoid problems over getting the early payment discount the next year.
  2. BMC 1500 cutting out. Video

    That's a difference and a half, well done.
  3. A new adventure

    Priorities!! The big dream is a 70 footer with a wine rack.... A really big wine rack... Ohh and a workshop....
  4. plug to plug

    To be fair the neutral was covered as well but that was only one of several similar "joints"
  5. plug to plug

    Suggest not!! Below is what I found on my present boat when I bought it, YES it was part of the 220v system. Ohh and there was no earth bond to hull.
  6. Marie Stranded on the Trent

    Little surprised as AFAIK vessels of this size are required to have AIS. Are you checking via an AIS transceiver or via say Marine Traffic as if the latter they could well be transmitting but their signal is not showing up on MT
  7. Distribution board cable

    Or add a secondary link from incoming1 to incoming10
  8. Battery inter-connect cables

    As far as I can see they are calculated values Would be interested what several amp meters connected into the loops would show.
  9. Name The Header Tank

    If you cannot find a replacement, possible suggestions (I assume its a crack that is the problem) After cleaning the area seal using a hot glue gun, It may or may not stick. "Melt" the crack together with a soldering iron. See if there is anyone in your are that does plastic welding.

  11. Probably the most sensible post you have made. Yes the OP may have bought a white elephant but he has learnt a LOT and decided to cut his losses. His money, his loss not yours so why keep on about it?
