After several weekends of windy weather, a CPYC sponsored cruise-out to Petaluma, and a long Vacation I am finally getting some planned upgrades and maintenance accomplished on weekends. Last weekend we completed installation of a new alternator based charging system. Now it looks like the alternators can be utilized to actually run the equipment on the boat — and charge the batteries. Next upgrade is a new shore-power based battery charger, which should not be as involved as the replacement of the entire alternator-based charging system.
Thanks to Mike Johnson and Richard Kent for replacing my malfunctioning aft bilge pump.
