02 Dec Burnt Offering
The ailing towed generator was the victim of a shorted and burnt deck connection. I remember mooning the lazarette hatch and getting a whiff of of it. It being the unmistakeable smell of burnt electrical bits.
‘Naaa,’ I said to myself, ‘Couldn’t be.’
As it turned out, couldn’t be had already come and gone. Everything takes way longer when ever tool you put down is instantly transported to somewhere else by the constant rolling of the boat. That and you must do it all with one hand. You need the other to hang on with.
It shorted in matter of days when salt water got into the thing.
