Miscellaneous boat gear that I should really dispose of, now that I'm no longer sailing

    1. 12v-50ah-relion-lithium-battery equivalent to a 100ah deep cycle lead acid battery, and much lighter and longer lasting. £200
    2. 100W semi-flexible solar panel, 106cm x 54cm, glued to a piece of epoxy coated and painted 9mm plywood ready for mounting with 4 x 6mm bolts ( I fitted these two items to Weaverbird, and used them to power everything aboard until I replaced them with larger ones for electric propulsion). £50
    3. 2 x 10kg claw-type (copies of the Bruce) anchors, with 10metre x 10mm ground chain, swivel and nylon riser, that formed the drying mooring for Weaverbird. They're still laid, and you'll have to come to Ravenglass and dig them out - free spade included! Free.
    4. Flotation suit, nylon/neoprene outer + closed cell foam + nylon inner, made a long time ago by Mullion Manufacturing Ltd in UK. Free
    5. Guy Cotten PVC waterproof jacket and trousers, badly stained as I used them for pre-antifouling scrubbing off. Free
    6. 2 metres x 45mm dia x 2mm wall anodised aluminium tube, could be used for the JR yard of a small dayboat, perhaps. Free
    7. 2 metres x 30mm dia x 28mm dia pultruded carbon fibre tube, reinforced at both ends - quite simply the best material for JR battens that I've ever found. Free
    All at Ravenglass. Carriage at cost where possible, otherwise to be collected (particularly the lithium battery and the ground tackle).

    12V 30Ah LiFePo4 lithium battery, Ultramax SLAUMXLI30-12 in a Pelican waterproof case, with waterproof socket on a short stub cable, 2 cables with waterproof plugs, 1.5m long, to connect to a load and a solar/wind controller, and dedicated mains charger.

    This was assembled for my first foray into electric propulsion, and would make a good power pack to run a trolling motor on a dinghy.

    £100

    Adult's lifejacket/PFD, Mustang Survival (a Canadian brand). Automatic inflation on entering the water - as far as I can remember, it never has. It has only been exposed to occasional spray and rain. Date of manufacture September 2011, and the label says "install a new automatic element (bobbin) every two years" so this should be done to ensure correct operation. The indicator "service if red" is still showing green, though.

    Free.

    Canadian means: has instructions in English and French and costs more :) But they are a good product. So far as I know these are what the Canadian Coast Guard uses.

    Is this the one with the D rings at the front (built in harness)?

    Free.

    Very good price. If I wasn't on the other side of the world, I would pick it up. These are $300-$400CDN new.

    No harness, no crotch strap.
