Flying visit

Just popped up for the evening.

The continuing cold weather makes me a little concerned for the plumbing on board. The Eberspacher central heating is on a frost stat which should protect against any pipes freezing. The problem is that the heater drains the battery in couple of days if the heating comes on frequently.

I have made up a mains lead with a two way adaptor so that both  Bronwyn (the boat next door) and JH can share the only working shoreline output.

I dont have a proper multi-stage charger so, as a temporary measure, I have a standard car battery charger and a time switch set to charge the battery for about four hours per day.

We have also brought with us an oil-filled electric radiator. We’ll leave that on a low setting to give some background heat which hopefully will keeop the frost out.
