Are you making it so you can charge said battery from the car as well via the 13 pin socket

i'm interested in the leccy winch setup too.

i have avoided buying one for now but i can see it in the future, especially if the new upgraded winch i bought today doesn't work!

besides the 400 quid for the winch, the battery idea and charging it i wasn't sure of. my car doesn't have 14 pin on it as i don't have a caravan. i was toying with adding that so i could charge the battery under way and have the battery on the trailer in some sort of box. however, i was concerned about the total come and steal me look about a combo like that when the trailer is sitting at some slipways.

Watching the bloody forecast and praying for some periods of settled weather to catch up with Novembers delayed surveys ..... 3 in delay, and now bumping into December!! Windy summer, lulled into false sense of security in October.... Pass the whisky (oh and keep me away from Ebay) :shakes head:

Many moons ago, in a time that many on here never knew, I was sent to survey biology on a foreshore in west Clare. Back in those days, GPS was a thing known only to the US armed forces. We used rocks the size of caravans to mark our survey locations. I went back in January and they were gone....

I feel your pain.

LED marker lights on the mudguards. Wiring the Enigma machine would be easier!

it's my own fault.... I gave a presentation to a local business club recently. When asked if our work was seasonal I proudly boasted that due to the nature of work we do we have work year round..... If only I could get the bloody boats afloat to deliver it!! On the plus side I've just bought a lovely set of seat covers for my new Jeep

Change out reed valves for new fibre ones (ex Chris Carson USA) on Opti. Source and fit aux outboard. Get out in January as it seems like the rest of this year is blown out !

Have a couple of sets of these from CC to swap into the Optis on the Arctic over the winter too... What thread lock will you be using on the screws out of interest? Read reports of factory stuff failing and pulling screws through
