  1. No thanks.Mainly because can buy out of China for not much over $300 landed.
  2. They have 2 nipples on bottom pointing down. Think could cut rectangle hole in a washboard and have it sitting outside in the cockpit. Beauty is no installation, just need 12v. I cant run ducting under furniture cos of tanks etc
  3. Anyone tried one? Thinking could set in the companionway and direct hot air below.Thing is, would have it going straight away, and no installing probs.
  4. BP, I like Simson products now. Had to replace the silicon around the windows. No silicon on the boat anymore.
  5. #1 for the Quilosa
  6. Big Boys Toys (Auckland) listing them at$595. Worth serious consideration.
  7. Can the Milwaukee 28v one be charged from uour 12 v battery?
  8. Dreamed the 18v drill would manage to power the self tailer to unfurl/furl the mainsail.Any other solutions?

    No, overnight it will turn off. Its unresponsive when off, but pull her power supply out,then plug her in again, and she fires up. Strange.

    Thanks, multimeter says she is getting power.
  11. Turning herself off for say 15m, then after about another 15m, turning back on. Power supply good and plugged in hard. Everything works good otherwise. Internal battery?
  12. Had great success with putting a bung in one end and filling with hydrochloric acid for 6hr
  13. Gotta install a level gauge so need to open it up for a wee while.Anything I can do to reduce the stench?Thanks
  14. I had a trimtab on aft edge of rudder with same idea.I gave up, and it takes a lot to beat me.Did think about actuating it with a morse cable but never tried.
  15. Anyone worked out any figures for, say, weekly consumption?Thanks
