Arts and Crafts Day

The breeze had just filled in and it looked to be that Burdwood Bank was finally behind us. You get used to seeing things the way they should be. Anything out of the ordinary stands way out
That is how I noticed that towed generator was miabehaving. The charge controller for the battery banks was standing way out in left field.

No need to diagnose this one. It had happened before. The deck connector had failed and shorted. Generator output was a big fat zero.

I had thought this through after I replaced and then subsequently repaired this same connector. If it happened again, lead the airs through the deck and make below deck permanent connection.

With the boat forereaching in 15 knots and a 4′ swell, we did circles while I hung upside down in the lazarette. Three hours later this is the result.

Doesn’t look like much, but sometimes great art never does …
