All is well and we are at anchor in Fannie bay
We have been cleared to sail to Tipperary Marina tomorrow morning
This evening just before dark we started the generator to charge batteries and after about 15 minutes Jane smelt an electrical burn - another fire extinguisher was used to put our flames in the cockpit locker that were coming out the top of the Victron
We emptied the locker and have now removed the victron
The boards seem in tact built considerable burning to the windings and the diode that splits the charge
So when we are in  the marina tomorrow morning we shall see what the engineers say - it does seem at this stage you buy a new one and get the old repaired in Holland later
So we are charging now with the main engine and the watermarking should not be affected
Our position is as before
