Sunrise/Sunset

I know this is probably old hat to those of you who have been liveaboards for years, but I'm only on day 4 so I'm still soaking it all in.. hoping that never changes.
Still on KY time so I've been waking up before sunrise and sitting with my first cup of warmth enjoying it in the morning.
Getting a kick out of the cats watching the seals out the windows as their eyes pop out of their skulls at the monsters in the water.
Don't think I've felt this relaxed in years.. despite the fact we still haven't figured out why the water temp in the shower is still only lukewarm or why a circut breaker or something pops off if you use the coffee pot and microwave at the same time.
Normally I'm anxious after a move until everything has found it's place, but I'm just like whatever, I'll unpack that box later got to watch the seals or the sunset or even take a nap.. don't know what I was thinking to be land locked for some many years. Glad that got corrected!!

Re: Sunrise/Sunset

In those first quiet moments of introspection on board a small boat, you feel the movement, sense the dynamics and begin to adjust your time to weather and tides .

That feeling allows your imagination to wander past the horizon towards new destinations....and new inspirations

Re: Sunrise/Sunset

Those magic moments more than make up for the terrifying ones.
As far as microwave and coffee pot. Microwaves can easily be rated for 1500 watt or more. If they are on a 15 amp circuit at 110 volts you have 1650 watts available. See if you can move the coffee pot to a different circuit.

I'm getting such a kick out of how relaxed the rocking makes me feel.

It's the 30 amp curcuit breaker before the isolation transformer. It doesn't pop the pedestral breaker or the indivual breaker. Hubby thinks it might be a weak breaker.
