The Dakasaurus III - 2015Entry Added: 4 days ago By: mlivsey
Two years ago, after six months of storage, it was assumed that the batteries would be OK.
They weren't OK.
So, we had to replace them all.
Elan installed a trickle charger to fix the issue.
It charges the batteries when the boat's idle. That differs from getting power at a port.
Normmally we run the boat with one bank active and the other one charging and then flip-flop. The third setting is to run them in parallel, but the batteries drain faster than they charge. I never use it.
With this trickle charger, that was the setting that it should have been in.
So I've got one bank fully charged and the other bank is totally dead, again.
Elan's offered to automate that switch for free..
Now, it'll switch between batteries as required and if it needs trickle feed, it'll figure it out.
I still have manual override as we're not ripping out the switches.
Hello, modern world. It's just a software change...plus a bunch of batteries.You need to be registered in order to add comments!
Tabby and Sammy RevoltEntry Added: Feb-8-2015 By: mlivsey
They've been in our guest house for ages. They feed the animals and clean the place and stuff.
Now they're finally over 3/11.
I bought the girls a Pastry Shop and a Florist a couple of years ago.
They can go run them.
Are they qualified? Nope.
They will ask questions. Lots of questions but they'll figure it out.
They should have wished that they were just bored,You need to be registered in order to add comments!
My XMAS 2014 Trip to Poland - Nikki's HistoryEntry Added: Jan-17-2015 By: mlivsey
Well, that December trip to Poland was highly informative. Somewhat depressing but the facts are out.
Little Violetta was born in on July 20th, 1985 in Byialstok Poland and immediately given up for adoption.
She has no idea who her biological parents are and no interest.
She then spent ten years bouncing around in orphanages before being finally adopted in 1996 by a couple from Lodz. That's why she calls Lodz her hometown.
They made sure she she got the best education possible and sent her to Cambridge UK (my dad's school). There, she changed her name to "Nikki" to Anglo-size it.
Not a good call: she picked a strippers name.
In her Freshmen year, her foster parents died in a fire (either house fire or car, don't know yet) so she took on two jobs to fund her way through university. Graduated in the top 5%.
She got a job doing finances at a hotel which I subsequently bought in 2007. We discovered that she was skimming the books for her bosses but also for herself as she had no money.
Instead of throwing her in ail for 10 years and/or deporting her, she helped us fix the financial systems.
Seriously, too cute for jail, Anyone else? Jail.
Subsequently, she's helped us expand the business.
In 2013, she got evicted as her landlord decided to sell the place, so she hung around with us sailing the Azores in our new boat. One can run a business from literally anywhere these days. When we got back we found out that her visa renewal papers were WAY!!! overdue and that deportation proceedings were underway.
So I legally married her. There's a rather complex pre-nup in place but she honestly didn't care.
It beats getting to deported back to Poland where she has no relatives; nothing.
Just over a year later, she has British citizenship and is still here. In her 29 year life, the last year has been about as stable as it has ever been.
This year's goal is to work on trust. She trusts me and "Double Trouble" but not much else.
I learned a lot on this trip about her.
I also learned not to give "Double Trouble" credit cards in spite of their promises.
Like I've never done that before in the last 30 years...
It got them out of the way.You need to be registered in order to add comments!

Wow, I've got some dipshits on this channel. That's the downside of not banning anyone. I'm voting everyone back up but I can only do so many. The good news is that negative votes don't count

Tis the Festive Season so I'm celebrating my neighbor's demise. I know I probably shouldn't do that but she also probably shouldn't fire a shotgun at my helicopter every time I took off. Crazy old bat

You know, running a hotel in the UK is really boring in the Autumn as nobody shows up. That's why we usually make our music in October/November. We finished that for the year and I've still got a week
