While at home we visited sister Dianne, saw numerous family and friends, plus tidied up house and garden. John finally decided on American Trojan 6 volt batteries, used widely for electric forklifts, etc. These were delivered to us in Nottingham and taken to Heyford, where John used his trolley to get them on the boat while Liana shopped in nearby Kidlington.

John decided to fit the new batteries while we awaited sister Alison's arrival. These seemed to work fine, thankfully.
