Charging Problems

We discovered a small problem on Saturday which has stopped us going out again temporarily, it turns out that the alternator isn't charging the battery but seems to be draining it after a very short time running. We discovered there was a problem of some kind on Friday after being at anchor waiting for enough water to come back in, I switched to the starter battery to fire up the engine but all I got was a click from the solenoid. Fortunately there was plenty of power left in the domestic battery to start the engine or it could have been a little embarrassing.

On a plus note, the new step looks very good and is a great improvement, I'll put up a photo of it once its varnished.
