MINDEN ELECTRICAL
Batteries: there are 3 batteries:
MAIN engine battery- charged by Main engine's dynamo WING engine battery - charged by Wing engine DOMESTIC circuit
battery- charged by Wing engine
Plus, all 3 batteries are charged by Shore Power (currently a very slow 10w charger, which will be changed to a new powerful 30/40w charger). Note that if the Wing engine is not run then the Domestic circuit battery will not be charged.
Buzzer on main instrument panel: if buzzer sounds, it indicates no charge on MAIN engine. So check the BATTERY STATUS charging level digital displays (see below) The two circular gauges (volts & amps) on the main instrument panel: these show DOMESTIC circuit charging rate- can also check on the BATTERY STATUS charging level digital displays {see below)
Red STOP light: this is probably oil pressure warning light (but use the oil pressure guage on the main instrument panel to check oil pressure). It is not electrics and can be ignored. It can be turned OFF with the NAV INSTRUMENTS rocker switch (on CB board locaed on main instrument panel)
BATTERY STATUS digital displays:
These indicate charging rates etc of the 3 batteries (12 volt). Looking at the circular
knob positions;

Name: MINDEN. SSR. No. 94933.
Type: Triple-screw Motor Launch of semi-displacement hard-chine hull form
and of welded steel plate construction.
Built by: Schless-Werft of Germany in 1962 as a commercial river patrol fireboat
Minden is a triple-screw motor cruiser of conventional long keel and hard-chine
hull form and of welded steel plate construction. She is powered by an eight-
cylinder main engine driving through conventional stem gear and fixed three-
bladed propeller to give the vessel speeds of up to IO knots. Two counter- rotating
outside propellers powered by hydraulic motors are also fitted to the vessel as
auxiliaries and these will give the vessel speeds of up to 4 knots in still water.
The hull is of welded 4 mm steel-plate deck construction stitch-welded to angle bar
frames, steel-plate floors and deck beams. Structural bulkheads are of steel-
platework and these together with extra thicknesses and members are welded at
areas of high stress, particularly forward, in way of machinery and stern gear. The
main deck is of 5 mm chequer-alummmm plate riveted to a steel flange
arrangement at the top of the hull and to the steel deck beams. Superstructure
over the engine room and wheelhouse is of 3 mm aluminum plate welded directly
to the deck plating, with the raised accommodation section between the two
structures of wood and GRP construction.
A V8 Deutz air-cooled diesel engine and ZF hydraulic gearbox will develop up to
180 H.P. The engine is fitted to resilient mounts and connected to the fixed
gearbox with a large rubber flexible coupling.
An auxiliary three-cylinder Lister diesel engine developing up to 30 H.P. is securely
fixed to flexible mounts on the port side of the engine room. This is connected to a
hydraulic pump, which in turn drives the hydraulic motors connected to the wing
propellers via a two Aquadrive flexible thrust bearings. Fuel is supplied from three

after an accident on the river rhine in the year 1960, 7 small fireboats and 3 bigger fireboats were built. The fireboat Minden was one of the small boats, which was built in 1963 from the Schless yard in Wesel (in Germany, now closed). The sister boats were built for the river Rhine and went inton service at the fire departments of Emmerich, Wesseling, Wesel, Bonn, Krefeld and Rees.
Minden was in service at the fire department of Minden from 11 June 1963 till 1991. boat was sold into the Netherlands.
The 6 sister boats were sold between 1980 and 1983. The boat from Wesel is still in service since 1983 at the fire department.
