Nine weeks to go and about 10 work days left.
Now having said that we will go when ready and living in the North when the Weather
lets us. I could be waiting for a break in the weather
in bloody August!
I have over the past couple of years entered into some lively debates:-) But I think I should give some feedback on the various pojects.
installed despite the worst instruction manual that a non engineer
has ever read! I should test this bit of kit before I leave.
installed 2 x10 lb and 1 x20lb tank. No room on the stern for 2x20. Give up on the esthetically pleasing. They are on and bolted and aint moving.
Got beat up here on Ebay. Sold as good working condition. Icom
Vancouver say minimum $250 fix. A lot of time , grief and money
went into this. I suffered much ridicule and after all is said and done it is bust! No reception! Some folk are not honest!
bank installed. Golf cart style.
Fourwinds gen installed.
Morningstar and tristar monitor
and controller installed. No fires so I think I got it right!.
steps installed to spreader.
Replaced all lights with LED bulbs. God bless china
Kat E 40 watermaker
mounted and ready to go!
Viking 4 man Offshore Liferaft
Standard Horizon Matrix AIS VHF Radio
bought. I listened to the arguments and one day I will have a Vesper, but it is out of reach at the moment. The add ons do make a difference to me. In the end it was which AIS
system can I afford. Also I am tired of refitting. This is a simple install.
Well I stired up the hornets nest by asking the quetion are EPIRBS an outdated concept
for us small boat owners?
I looked at my reality. Looked at the facts and went for 2 epirb
devices that are tied to our life vests. They call them laptops. Opps sorry I meant PLB's.
Bought the ARC
and 250ft of 3/8 Chain.
Fridge Got an Engel. Bought it from the distributor in the States and had it shipped and saved a packet. Strange world. The dealer in Vancouver Bc wanted $700 more?
Anyway I am now broke, saving up for corned beef for the voyage!.
have a shoot load of work to do on all my projects. Like throw hulls which I need winter to go away for a while and then I can finnish a mess of the above jobs.
I cant wait to go sailing, for a rest:-)
