New Batteries on Brighton Belle

​We've just received the following by text message from Stewart and Ingmar in Lanzarote:

A busy day yesterday paying ransom to get the batteries released. Gave up on their delivery proposal of Tuesday, so found the warehouse and collected them. Loaded them into hire car. Drove 35km to marina and unloaded eight 40kg batteries and walked them one by one to the boat.

We were getting very hot by then so cooled off by washing the deck as everything was covered in fine, red Saharan sand. Leaky hose spraying water everywhere, got soaked. Lovely.

Disconnected and lifted the old batteries out, cleaned all terminals etc., and installed the new ones. Finished at 8pm. All working fine now. Yeah!

Stewart

Stewart,

Absolutely brilliant - well done. Will call you tomorrow to touch base but once again, brilliant job done by Ingmar and yourself. Please treat yourselves to a celebration meal at BB's expense - Treasurer's orders.

A big thank you to Stewart and Ingmar

I'd just like to thank Stewart and Ingmar for scrubbing Brighton belle's decks. Most fortuitous that they were able to fit the new batteries at the same time.
