Up and Running Again

Had a few problems with the graphics on the PC and decided it was time to fix it with a new one, but I decided whilst it was out of commission I would reorganise the spare bedroom/office. That turned out to be a bit more of a job than planned and ended up rebuilding the computer desk, which those that have seen the old one will agree, it was a bit of overkill, but I had to cater for four monitors. Now anybody stopping over will have a good deal more elbow room than before.
Of the boat there is not much to tell, the Hurricane boiler has been removed and the steelwork where it had been repainted. It had been sitting on two steel bars which seemed to be sticking, so a quick tap with the mooring hammer and they were free.
That’s when I realised that they had been “welded”. How much bright metal can you see?
Other than that, it has just been little jobs like putting spacers in between the batteries to allow air flow and stop them moving about and as there are seven batteries in a 4/3 arrangement the last one is held in place by good heavy box which holds the hydrometer and distilled water.
Most of the time has been playing on the computer, it’s amazing how much time it takes to get things set up and running just how you like it.
