Yes exactly as you suggest but what will charge the "domestic" (let's assume it's batt 2) If you start and run off batt 1 ?

You want to avoid moving the switch with the engine running.

You don't want to start from "both"
If the pump has flattened batt 2.

You will need to install a VSR (voltage sensitive relay) or diode isolator.

Excellent advice. Thanks very much. I have just read about VSRs and I can see that one will be needed.

I have anti-fouled the Revenger this morning and am ready to launch for the first time on Saturday. I have no access to a hose at the storage yard so have not been able to run the engine. Provided it starts tomorrow everything is good to go. With the many layers of grease removed, all the rusty fittings replaced, the engine leg and lower covers painted, and the shiny bits polished, the boat now looks nothing like the dirty wreck I purchased!

The bad weather meant that the launch was postponed until next weekend. The good news is that the engine started for the first time in my ownership. It took a while to pump fuel through to the carbs but once it was done the engine started easily and ran cleanly.

Launch

The Revenger finally got launched from the old Tremlett Yard and motored onto its mooring on the Exe. It has now had several short runs and everything is working perfectly. Both daughters have put it through its paces and have given it their approval. Since launching I have replaced the automatic bilge pump and done some re-wiring to put wires in correct runs and remove unnecessary connections and wire. The next job is to fit a trim gauge and tidy the instrument wiring.
