Not the result we were expecting ! 

We had planned to take a couple of friends over to Northern Ireland for a weeks sailing in Belfast Lough, two hours into the ten hour trip and the weather changed completely with large rough seas and a good 28knts steady wind instead of the 12-14 on the forecast. One of our friends fell ill, really ill and so we headed to the Isle of…

Inverter install

Posted on May 9, 2011 at 5:17pm 0 Comments

As part of our plans to set up for blue water cruising we have a few planned changes we wish to make (over time) to the power around the boat. One of the first things was to get an inverter and later we will supplement the battery capacity with a third domestic battery and some wind and solar generation.

Its not a hard modification to do, but it is something you have to take care with as one side is shore power voltage (240V for us) and the other is huge cables (70 sq mm) onto big…

Teak treatment

Posted on April 3, 2011 at 3:30pm 2 Comments

Spent the weekend bringing the teak back to that ‘new’ look. Used products from a company called Onward Trading who supplied the active cleaner and neutraliser (stage one and two) and a coloured sealant from Semco.

Took a lot longer than I thought it would given that we don’t have a full teak deck, just the cockpit, toe rail and coach roof.

We like the golden honey colour while others like the aged silver look however the ‘teak oil’ we used last year must have contained linseed…

Shower drain check valve (non return valve) location on B43

Hi, the water in the front shower drain, when pumped out, seems to partially flowing into the aft shower drain box. And the water pumped out from that seems to be flowing back a little. I think the check valve is malfunctioning but I haven’t been able to locate it. Can anyone help please. Many thanks.See More

Power Cord change

After 10+ years it was time to change the 50A 125/250 V shore power splitter. It had served well but it was showing signs of degradation due to heat. I also had previously changed out the boat side power inlet connectors to the SmartPlug type, changing out the fittings on the shore power cable to match. I absolutely love the SmartPlug system. No twisting, sure connection, much more surface area, etc.I decided to buy short factory made 25 FT Smartplug power cords as I normally berth stern-to and…See More
