  2. Has anyone tried "traction" batteries?

    Have had 6x2v traction batteries for 10 years and can still do a full wash and dry in the machine with no problems.
  3. Any washing machine engineers on here?

    If it happens again check the carbon brushes in the motor. Mine did the same thing and it was an easy fix.
  4. Is Barrow deep on red?

    Soar is high at Redhill & red light is on.
  5. Soar valley sailaway boats

    Built my widebeam 8 years ago, very happy. They will go the extra mile to please if you want any thing differant from the norm. There are plenty of people at Redhill to offer help and advice on fitting out. There is a good chandlery nearby who are very happy to offer good advice. I live at Redhill and hope to see you here soon.
  6. Sliding hatch lock?

    Try pattio door locks/bolts, They look tidy and can be opened or locked from inside or out.
  7. Diesel Heater - Discuss!

    I have a hurricane that has now done 7,000 hrs without any problems except compressor that has now been rectified. I service it twice a year, it takes 1hr max. It heats my 57 x 10 wide beam very fast. Would recommend it to anyone.
  8. SKY Satellite dish

    Hi. I have had sky for 5 years on my boat. first i was told by sky that it was not possible because i did not have a land line, but i put forward the point that not everyone had a land line. After a few calls they told me i would have to pay £25 connection charge which i did, no problems. Last year i upgraded to Sky+ which they would send an engineer to fit, as i had wired up the twin leads to the lmb all he did was fit the new lmb and tune it in. Again no problems. When i go out on the boat it takes me no longer than 5 minutes to tune it in.
  9. Hi, Must add another word for Soar valley steel boats at Redhill Marina. They only do they build a great boat but if its steel they will build it well.
  10. Zinga

    Hi John. Had Zinga on my hull from new (5 years ago). I drydocked the boat 2 1/2 years ago to have the rudder worked on. Thought I would have it blacked at the same time by the guys who run the dry dock. Their comments where that it did not realy need doing as there was absolutley no signs of any corrosion. Thay jet washed it and it looked as good as new. I had the blacking done anyway. Thay said not to bring it back for annother 7 to 10 years. I am a liveaboard and go out with the boat regulary so it gets a few scrapes but thay never go rusty. I cannot see any corrosion so am very happy. :lol: Regards Tommyhol
