Powercell Industrial Battery Engineers turned up this morning and fitted Yarwood's battery bank. We have opted for a bank 2v traction batteries with a capacity of 945 amp hours. The traction batteries, though more expensive, allow us to discharge (use) more of their storage capacity. We provided Powercell with details of what equipment would be aboard Yarwood and how many hours it would be used for; Powercell went away and did the calculations based on the equipment levels and our request that we would want to moor up for say three days and NOT have to run the engine/generator.

More importantly, (woman speaking here...) the painter has started glossing the ceiling! Chris is in all week to get the internal painting done and dusted.
