1 1/2 weeks to go until we set off on our trip of a lifetime!! Counting down the days now and trying to get everything done in time for our departure. shopping for food, spares and completing the list of jobs seems to be taking up all our time and having a 1 1/2 year old trying to 'help' is not really that 'helpful'!! In the last week our Rutland regulator seems to have packed it in so have ordered a new one from New Zealand and with fingers and toes crossed we are hoping it arrives before 4th may, our planned departure date.

To register the boat for international travel we had to rename the boat. LU from my name and NA from Naomi and RAY from how our surname sounds, making something like a moonbeam.

Whats a regulator?
15th May 2013

Glad to hear you are enjoying the blog and learning too. A regulator is an electrical gizmo that regulates the current from the solar panels and wind generator going to the batteries. If you charge batteries with too much charge it's bad for them, Luke
