Hi

The BA have just installed a couple of posts at Somerlyton, confusingly marked post 1 and their other post 3, what happened to poor post 3  Question.

They are the same as the other posts so it would seem BA are sticking with the same style at the moment.

I guess they could just change the meter unit in the post to a different type though. I'd like to see one that will not go into a debit state, I know I won't use a £'s worth of electric overnight but it irks me when I have to clear someone else's debit even only 30 pence. I don't mind leaving 75 pence on the meter though Smile .

It would be good if they could just take what we use off a card and only what we use leaving the meter at zero when you remove the card, that would be fairer.

John.

Thank you, ranworthbreeze. I did phone the BA, but the man with the knowledge was out on site. I'm waiting for a return call. I know that the BA will replace non-functioning cards. Boatyards can also return them to the BA for replacement. I'm interested in hearing their official policy, as some boatyards might be less co-operative than others.

Hi

Yes working OK, both posts had boats plunged into them and all were in credit, which was a miracle!!

We hadn't noticed or expected the posts when we arrived and moored at what we think of as the 'quiete end' by the cut in where the bridge height gauge is and the posts are towards the roadway end of the moorings.

Also the rubbish bins are still in place, which is a good thing!!

John.

Thanks for that John.  I have now updated my site. Even B.A do not appear to have revised yet. Cheers

Kind Regards

John,
I've never seen an electric post with more than a few pence debit on it. The electricity cuts out for us when this happens. Generally I believe we're up 4 or 5 pounds at least when using the posts as more often than not you can manage to find one with credit on it, especially in low season. Sometimes when I put a card in I only use 15p and then the rest is for someone else to benefit from - but I still reckon we're up overall.
Always be grateful to you for selling us our first card when we were new to boating. (He only charged me the correct cost - a £1)
