Had Silver Wisper from Silverline a week or so back and was surprised to find that it had a shore power socket and line fitted, although we did not use it. Looking at this years Hoseasons brochure I see that Silver Siroco & Solano were shown to be fitted with it but I had not noticed it. In Hoseasons 2006 the three boats are shown as having it. Are there other hire boats?

I think Clive that you may find that they are fitted to all year boats so that the battries can be kept topped up when not out on hire. What would interesting to know is whether there is a charger fitted as well, with shorter days and more hook up points it would make a lot of sense.

I don't think I explained it properly.  It is fitted so that hirers can plug in at the charging points, providing that they have the relevent card.

stupid question I'm sure, but would this not require that the hireboats with this facility would also need to come with cables etc?

Surely if all the boats were to have this facility there is going to be a problem at some of the power points.As some people will be hooked up all the time while others wont get a look in .I think the idea is great especially in the colder months in fact we have used them ourselves the other week end and it certainly made for more comfort. But there are not enough for all boats .Although i expect some people would not want to use them as it is not in the spirit of boating.

I doubt sue that it would be worth while on all hire boats but if operating all year round there would be milage in installing immersion heaters in hotpot's and a built in mains charger. This would ensure that batteries stayed fully charged during the shorter daylight hours whilst still ruling out 3kw fires.

This is what I am proposing for the new Empresses being not very keen on the mixture of water and mains electricity unless everything is hard wired.

Richard.  Silver Line do supply the connecting cable but not the card.  I did notice that, as Sue expected, most points were occupied by private boats. Some did not appear to have anyone on board. That went for the two points at Rockland for the 18 hours that we were there.
