Well, we are all ready for Swiftsure. Had the prop adjusted. Turns out in pretty typical fashion, the prop was installed wrong. The blades weren't seated properly and the blades were out of order. The bolts holding the prop together were bent and the thing was completely out of grease.
We decided that the alternator problem is not worth worrying about. To be sure the wiring is suspect but we think that the 16.5 volts that we see is the regulator being programmed to overcome the resistance of the battery isolator. I called AmpTech and they said that the alternator can run up to 300°. I think all systems are GO! I hope.
Pete made these new spin guy blocks. Pretty cool, I think.
I chased the heater duct down and changed out the registers to something that can close. We now have some heat in the forward two cabins.
