I do more!! That is what my daughter says when she wants to do more fun things. I am not sure if I'd consider boatwork to be a fun thing but I could think of worse.......maybe not. Working on boats would be outlawed by the Geneva Convention as cruel and unusual punishment. It is a form of torture for sure.
We went to Whidbey Island via the car for the 4th of July and had a great time. Pete and Rachelle showed up and we drank some beers and blew stuff up.
|That blow up real good! Man I loved SCTV,|
|Gingerbread sparkler that scared the hell out of Sam.|
|Staking our spot on the beach|
|Trying out the shirt that Grandma got her|
|I put the speedseal on however....|
Before installing the Speedseal, I changed out the positive wire for the engine starter. The engine never really cranked over with vigor and i have always suspected the cable. What with it's crappy crimps and extra long length not to mention the laughable gauge (4 gauge I think). I put in a 0 gauge and shortened it by 4 feet. That starter cranks now. Have to look at the engine mounts to make sure I didn't crack them. Hit the starter and BOOM! that engine was running.
|Much bigger cable to the starter. No hesitation starting that Perkins now.|
|Hard to see but there is a bald eagle in the photo|
|We saw Huey Lewis and the News on the 7th of July at the Zoo|
Got these 2 140W panels installed on July 5th and haven't been plugged into shore power yet. The batteries haven't been down much either so the panels aren't really getting much of a work out. I've seen 15 amps going in at one point but the batteries go to float pretty quick and the amps drop down. I like what I see though.
