Is it the snow?

When I look at the "Board Index" page, any sections with unread posts show a red circular icon at the left hand edge. All read show in blue. Recently, the "Shooting the breeze" section has been showing red regardless of read or unread bits. All the others seem to be working as ex...

Re: Wind Powered Charger / Shore Powered Charger - Black Wire Connection

If you want the charging current to be measured then the black should be at the away-from-battery end of the shunt I think.

This is based on knowing nothing at all about your setup, but guessing that it's like most with the ammeter shunt in the battery negative line.

Re: Connel Bridge reduced clearance

It seems September was optimistic but there are signs today that work is about to start. I wonder if the finish date will be put back 2 months too.

Forum time quirk?

When I'm logged in, the forum time is GMT which is awkward but I can cope. But if not logged in, the forum time is BST. I don't know what happens to it in winter.

There's always something to keep me occupied when they take the boat away for winter ...

(Nothing similar has happened this year so it has worked!) But last weekend, when passing Lochalin...

Re: Trousers open?

We went to Tobermory instead. Cafe Fish is excellent but difficult to get a booking. Just as well, I can't afford to let Jane take me there often!

Trousers open?

Googling to find if TnT is open for food tonight, the url I found is http://www.tigh-an-truish.co.uk. Follow that and you end up at Nick's place https://www.webcraft.uk/ which has no information about the kitchen.

Will we starve?
