From her vantage point...

My wife and I drove out to Lake Carlyle over in Illinois yesterday to look at a, '83 Catalina C27 and snapped this shot from the cockpit.

Maybe the hamster IS dead, but I'm pretty sure there was no photo with that post.

When anchor lights get that bright they can be confused by others for the sun. Better to put a lower watt bulb in it.

Re: From her vantage point...

That is what happens when you connect a MPPT solar charger to a Smartgauge using a KISS counterpoise and route the resulting NMEA output over TCP/IP...

I showed the better nine-tenths your posts and she grinned and said to tell you all, thank you.
