Berthed in a marina near Swansea? Beware this boat



This guy is over on another forum saying he's going to try and inhibit algae growth on his boat at its berth by putting a low voltage current through the water. Here(click)

I suspect everyone's anodes near him will start fizzing quite quickly.

The boat is quite recognisable so hopefully he won't get far with this bloody stupid idea.

have you posted that AC will work best? 3 copper anode/cathodes placed two off the port and starboard stern and one off the bow distance and each connected to a phase of the 415v 3ph mains that should stop him worrying about Algae

I really wouldn't like that. Reading his posts, I'd say he's one of those Special people.

You really can't talk sense to them and they tend not to cooperate with Authority...

so

I reckon this would be nearer the mark:-



Far easier on a thick head like that.

Well yes, but trickier to use underwater in the wee hours...

I'd be wary of anyone near that place.

connecting 4.4KV overhead line to a copper anode and shoving it somewhere anatomically painful would probably work quite well!

This might well tempt Codprawn back on-line when he reports the bottom half of his outboard disappearing
