Re: How can i have constant electricity on a boat

Where di you put the cable roll? On the boat or is it on the pier? If it is on the pier, do you have a remote control reel starter to roll it up when you head back in?

The thought of a nuclear reactor installed by Hunter is one that fills me with dread. Now, if Bristol Yachts did it, it might work...

I think we've pretty much established that the OP of this thread is 13 years old. How old are the children bantering with him?

Re: How can i have constant electricity on a boat

At the moment, this thread is just clean fun. Noone is poking fun at chuckles or anyone else.

Of course if he put wave generation equipment on his hunter, he would be able to make electricity. Might be tough to keep the boat still.

Jus'sayin'

It's next to the water line and prop wash, just down from the buckets of steam.

Re: How can i have constant electricity on a boat

It's my understanding that these 3 are out of work.
Should be perfect for generating power.

No cable roll, we just pile it and it sometimes gets tangled not to mention inconsiderate fellow yachties cutting it with their keels(I hate long keeled boats)

Ah guys C'mon, it ain't complicated at all, just get a politician and he'll have enough hot air to fire up a steam boiler, no worries.
