Having just picked up this boat, I spent Saturday giving it a bath an yesterday working on the electrical
. Even got the starboard Enron to crank freely. The portside was not so willing. Needs a little TLC to have the smoothness that the starboard showed.
WD 40, Marvel Mystery Oil
and Pyrol Penetrating Oil
should bring it around. Shes been sitting for several years and the batteries were blown due to over charging
and crossing the poles.
Looks like I'll be running new wire through the entire boat, which was expected. Better safe than sorry.
It is easy to run new wire. Just make sure to mark everything and only remove one wire at a time.
To maintain your batteries, slap on a low voltage solar
panel with a cheap regulator
. Do not run direct!
