Something like that ! - however when I got to the boat - it wont start ! AGAIN . This is the same as last year . Yard said in October it was down to corrosion on the master switches.

Do you think the govt will lend me the cash to fix it ?

Summer - cancelled until advised !

I'd take the battery leads off and give them a wire brush + the battery terminals carefully so you don't short it across the terminals, then refit with a bit of BP jelly before spending any money on it saved me 450 on an alternator last week
