Yet another new alternator.

Our troublesome domestic alternator finally expired on last Tuesday so we had to make our way down to Norbury Wharf where we have been stuck between two other boats.

That's us, second one in, absolutely no 'phone signal, ergo, no internet. The new alternator finally arrived this morning and it was a matter of an hour or so before it was fitted and producing electricity like there was no tomorrow. It also has a free wheeling pulley fitted. This means that when you stop the engine the alternator continues to spin for a short while, preventing the sudden jar on the bearings and also helping the alternator to cool down, or so I am reliably informed.
Once it was up and running we headed out and have made it as far as The Anchor.

Watch this space.........
