I live on board the Milly M fulltime. In the last 12 years since I commissioned her I have probably slept off her about 30 nights. Solar panels back then were not common. Today every twat with solar panels seems to complain about those of us who do not have solar panels. It’s getting to be like the reformed smoker thing (I know this because I am one), I’ve got panels why haven’t you.
If I am not moving my boat I run my engine when I run my washing machine. If I had solar panels I would still run my engine while the washing machine is running. I am sorry if you are annoyed, but I am following the rules, and when my washing machine is finished I will turn the engine off. You could volunteer to do my washing that’s fine by me, but because you are selfish, you don’t, so I have to do it myself. While I am doing my washing I am also charging my batteries.
Yes I know there are alternatives, but unless you want to put your hand in your pocket I think you should shut up. There are rules! The one that applies here is 8-8. It is not anti-social to run an engine for hot water, for battery charging, for washing clothes etc.
It is anti-social to complain like a whinging toddler. If you don’t like it, it is not because I am anti-social, it’s because you are a twat! If you and your wife feel the need to insult people while you are out on your yearly two week jolly don’t do it with me. More importantly do not threaten me, it will not end well for you.
You might ENDEAVOUR to think before you go mouthing off to other people.
