The Big One (15-5)

Thursday 12th July 2012.

Gas Street Basin. Shepcote Street Bridge.

The weather has taken a turn for the better and so I have decided to tackle some of the other jobs that have been waiting so long. So I did a re-location and rewire of the tunnel light. I even gave the tunnel light a polish to get rid of the brass tarnish.

Then I did a rewire of the solar panel system using heavier gauge wiring to reduce circuit resistance.  Therefore allowing more current to flow. I also added an isolation switch and a 30 amp fuse into the wiring harness. 

The cratch cover has been constructed and today it was installed we are very pleased with the quality and price. If you are thinking of having a cratch cover made. I can recommend a good tradesman for the job. Drop me a email and I will give you his details.

One of the things that surprises me about the area around gas street is the lack of canalside facilities for boaters. No working sanitary station, no Biffa rubbish disposal.
