    Bounder in for a facelift

    A Superhawk? Very nice. Never owned a Sunseeker. Had two Sealines, two Princesses, a Fairline, plus four others of various makes. One of which was wooden and had mushrooms growing in the cupboards. Think it might have been a bit damp!

    Help with Woodburner Glass

    When the glass on my wood burner goes black I give it the equivalent of an Italian service. I light a fire and get it as hot as possible. Really roaring. Any old wood goes on there . Chipboard burns really hot. And that glue strand stuff. Failing that I’ve got an old telegraph pole chopped up...

    Lead Acid Batteries

    I used 6v in series as it takes up less space to get the same amp hours. My two Trojan T140 are 260ah each wired in series so 12v @260 ah. There is no way a pair of 12v 130ah batteries wired in parallel (to give 12v @ 260ah) would fit in the same space. And don’t bother fitting anything...

    RV Insurance

    Beware Adrian Flux windscreen cover. I had a quote from them and asked about windscreen limits, was told it was unlimited. When I finally saw the written policy details windscreen was limited to £1000. No good at all for an RV. REGARDS
