With visitors coming at the weekend we needed somewhere safe for them to park the car so we moved the 3 miles to Bugbrooke
From the time we bought Inca we knew the domestic batteries had nearly come to the end of their lives.We are having to run the engine for far longer periods of time. We have not bought new ones yet because at the end of next month we are having solar panels fitted and were advised to wait till then to get new batteries. On Thursday Carolyn said she could smell sulphur in the boat. I went down and checked the batteries and all seemed fine. We opened all the doors and windows and vented the boat throughout But as the day went on it got worse . In the evening It got so bad that i decided after Carolyn could not stay in the boat to go down and disconnect all the batteries. There are 4 in total and one of them was so hot you could not touch it. After disconnecting it this is what i found.
