    Solar Panels

    I've been running a very similar set up to 67 Westy for a number of years. I have also just fixed some flexible panels on my boat using heavy duty Screwfix velcro. The best advice is to buy from a reputable supplier, there's a lot of chat about cheap MPPT controllers not being what they seem...

    Pushrod tube seals

    I'd be loathe to use bathroom sealant that sounds like a bit of a bodge. When I did my Type 4 ones I used a very fine smear of permatex. http://www.statesidetuning.co.uk/t4lubes.html. Got to wonder if its the tubes themselves

    The Way Forward - Pre Bay Purchase

    I suspect if you spend over £20k you won't get much, if anything more, than you might for £15k. All of these are old and a spray over can hide a multitude of sins and rust.

    Split charge system

    If you use a Voltage Sensitive Relay like the Durite shown in that kit then it is very easy to do. All you are doing is connecting one battery to the other, its just a case of deciding the best cable route and where to mount the VSR and fuses.

    Morcambe & Wize screwed people over

    Indeed you can when its a contract involving an individual. M&W was I believe set up as a limited company and undoubtedly operated through that, as a result it will only be the company assets of which it sounds like there are none that you could claim from. Looking on Company's House website...

    I was out in Dubai in 1991 (there was a war going on or something) can remember sitting on the beach and sailing a laser straight off ... and going for a curry in the locals curry house above the shops, happy days. I shudder when I see the photos of what it looks like today.
