Solar Power Battery Charger for a Boat

Solar in an Irish winter? How to get a really good Solar Power Battery charger for boat, camper or RV, that works even in an Irish winter.

Setting up a solar power battery charger circuit for a boat or RV is easier than you think. A good Solar power battery bank that will work even in dull overcast weather can be done. And we’ll prove it. A correctly installed solar power battery bank setup is now a real option even in cold wet climates. You can use your solar power battery storage in any boat or RV. And if it works here in an Irish winter just think how well this solar setup will work in sunny weather. I used to think that a solar power battery charger for RV, boats or campers only worked in hot sunny countries, but now I know better. So follow along for a greener, quieter renewable energy source.

Boating on the River Shannon – Carnadoe Lakes

If you go boating on the River Shannon you must visit the Carnadoe Lakes. The Carnadoe lakes are a tributary of the River Shannon and they’re often an overlooked beauty spot. The old limestone Carnadoe Quay is matched only by the old Stone Bridge. This bridge has a reasonably low air draft but air draft gauges on either side of the bridge will help. Do stock up on milk and supplies before heading to Carnadoe because there are no shops here. This is a wonderland that remains as unspoiled as it ever did. There is so much more to show in the Carnadoe Lakes that it will probably be another video in the future. We didn’t get to explore Kilglass mooring, the mountain river or indeed the Rockville Navigation. Oh, roll on the new boating season.

Inland Waterways Boating to Killeens Bar – Pub

The Irish Inland waterways are probably the best cruising ground in the world, and certainly the best inland waterways in Europe. Even in this awful wet weather. But we try to show the river experience as it is, and sometimes our inland waterways can get quite a bit of rain. But without rain, we would not have these magnificent rivers and lakes. We end up in Killeen’s Bar or Pub if you prefer, Sadly Killeen’s will be closing for good very soon. What a pity that is. Hope you enjoy the video.

What we thought of Lough Derg

We spent most of the 2019 season boating on Lough Dreg, so here’s what we thought of Lough Derg, what we learned from our time there and a few tips we’d like to pass on to you.

Lough Derg is a large lake so it’s worth doing a bit of research before you head out on it in a boat. I hope this short video will be of some help to you and also to help make your holiday a little more enjoyable.

Here is what we thought of the Shannon’s largest lake!

The Secret Lake – Part Two

When people think of the secret lake they don’t normally think of River Shannon boating. But step aboard and join us for an extraordinary River Shannon cruise from a secret lake to Lough Derg, the River Shannon’s largest lake.

The Secret Lake – Part One

This secret lake just off Lough Derg is probably not visited by many boats. That’s because it’s not on the majority of charts of the River Shannon. Also, it’s well off the navigation channel. On this voyage, we bring you with us as we explore deep into this lesser-known part of Lough Derg.

What’s wrong with the rain?

Rain on the cabin window

As I sit here on my boat writing this, outside the rain is chucking it down in buckets full. All around me people are complaining about the rain. “Not a day for boating” I hear someone say. Yet without rain, we would not have this river and all its magnificent lakes. Every plant, every animal, in fact, every single living thing on this planet depends on this life-giving water. Even our own bodies are made up of 60% water. It’s in us as well as all around us, it’s part of us.

Boating in Ireland – Cruise into Scarriff Harbour

Well if you want to go boating in Ireland you should check out this cruise into Scarriff Harbour. Scarriff is a mid-sized town in Co Clare. It has a super harbour a short distance up the Scarriff river that links the town to Lough Derg.

Hope you’ll join us for this cruise in great weather across Lough Derg and into the Scarriff River. Ta
