Thank you guys for all the kind replies ^.^
Me, the broker and a marine surveyor
were initially unable to locate were to plug in the boat! Lol?
We were all looking for some sort of plug device on the rear section of the boat. I was ignoring a small 3 pin plug in the anchor locker
thinking it was for the Windlass remote
. . .
After a phone
call to Germany
I realised that shore supply is plugged into the anchor locker
You are correct Selene there are two metal angle screw like things to activate the battery banks. That is the first thing the soon to be ex owner told me.
Today I did some exploring of the electrics (thank god they are neat!) and after some testing I got to the conclusion that the battery that was not charging is just dead (after 2 years standing there. . no ****).
The other one I think is still alive thanks to the solar
panel (they work flawlessly even if they look as if they need some TLC!). I have no idea why the solar panels
are not connected to BOTH batteries but just to one (they have a waterless type, Delhi if I remember well. 2 of them. One house battery and one motor).
Also looks as if it is a good time to start and learn German! Still loads of cleaning to be done. And still have to figure out how to actually rig this type of boat (till now only sailed on Bavaria's mostly and the ropework I think is a wee bit different.)
But yea I will learn
Will continue posting
updates in this thread (unless you guys think its a bad idea?)
Many thanks & love from Malta
Lemme know if ya guys ever pass by!
