Im with Mollers on this one have been caught twice leaving bow in on a pontoon with stern to sea and overnight the wind got up and yes you have guessed it baling in the morning. Hope this helps.

Blimey, that's a bit strong. Where I kept mine, cards were used to credit the sockets. Forget that one then.

So following on from this ...... the blue ebay cover seems to fit well even when on the water - got the two bow straps under the hull ans the stern has been 'modified' a bit and ties down to stop pretty much all the rain getting in the boat. Takes a while to fit/remove but should work well & stayed on in 40knt gusts in the week.

Shore power has been 'arranged' but all I want to do is plug one end in the marine and my battery charger in the other - but all the cables I see seem to be for the 'big boys' deck sockets and not a std 13 amp 3 pin plug ( into which I can plug the charger into) .

Assume I can simply wire a suitable plug on the boat end of one of these & off I go ?

that would be ace ! When i get to a real computer i'll pm you.

Then its a case of dig out some cable and a plug for the other end.

That'll give me a decent length cable with the right plugs on without the need to buy 2 prewired bits at stupid prices.

Dehumidifier

Have you considered running a dehumidifier? even 1 day per week would draw
out a significant amount of moisture.
