Melbourne - Day 5

Sunday - 17 May 2015

As Kirrily was back at work today we said our good-byes to her and Ian and headed back to the caravan park. David spent the rest of the day checking our batteries in the caravan as we have had problems with low voltage alarms at Forth. Turns out that the batteries are OK - the specific gravity of all cells in both batteries was better was than 1.275 indicating a full charge. It would seem that our battery protector may be cutting off the power when it reads 10.5 volts, even though the voltage is much higher than that. The solution will be to by-pass the battery protector if it happens again, until a replacement can be obtained. This problem has happened before!

After lunch we went for a drive to Williamstown. The place was packed with vintage cars and Harley Davidson motorbikes in abundance. We walked around the craft market and stopped for an ice-cream. On the way back to the car we stopped to look at the boats for sale at the local Sundance Marine outlet. Di found a nice looking O'May motor-sailer before realizing that it was our boat Moorina. It was good to see it being advertised for sale in Melbourne.
