Chilled with the freezer off

Another windy day today with a chance of showers, so a quiet day chilling out. We walked up to the chandlers and picked up some stern grease and waste tank additive, dropping our rubbish off on the way. As the weather brightened up in the afternoon we sat in the cratch reading.
We have now turned the freezer off as we have used everything in it and wanted to see if it makes a difference on the batteries, and was surprised how much better it is. We are now back to running the engine for an hour and half a day where it used to be two hours. The freezer is much better when we are cruising and not happy when we are static for a few days. Saying that, it's fantastic to have a freezer due to the fact you don't have to worry about having fresh food on board in remote areas and not having to rely on tinned food.
We won't be doing much over the weekend because we'll hopefully be enjoying the bank holiday sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!
