Ordered batteries today

I ordered the batteries today, we are getting in the short rows.

2, Odyssey Extreme Group 31 starting batteries, 1150 CCA. They should make short work of these Yanmars.

And 8- DC250-6 Full River AGM for the house bank, 1000 Amp Hrs @ 12VDC.

When they are all installed we should have plenty of power.

With our charging system, there should never be a lack of juice.

Installing rub rail

Today, I brought a propane heater with me to heat the PVC rub rail to bend it around the bow. Things went much better than they did yesterday when we tried to do it with a heat gun.

Monday we will finish fitting it, and Tuesday glue and screw it into place.Click image for larger version

Why do you put non-skid under the bridge deck?

To keep from wasting 4 or 5 thousand dollars filling and fairing an area that only the fish see. And, if she ever turned over, you would have a place you could stay to await rescue.

I first saw it on Orin Byrd's " HummingByrd" and it made all the sense in the world to me. Orin's was painted International Orange with non-skid.
