I can only agree and do not forget this is for INLAND WATERWAYS, cat D water. I have also got to have a lifreaft amongst other things.

All this just to code a boat in the Solent

Many thanks for some very helpful advise indeed. Just got to get round to doing it now!!

Hello Stuart,
what made you change your mind about the coding?

Disregard that...just read your link.


Are we there yet?

split charger

They are actually know as Battery isolators and do basically as what you have done.
Without going into the nitty gritty, diodes(depending on how many batteries being charged) and sensing unit housed in heatsink box, 3 poles on top 1 going to each battery, the other is the main charge line from the alternator(normaly goes to live side of start soly) smallest unit rated at 75amps and up to 36v. Have a look at EC smith & sons or aquamarine etc
