Saving the best for last


Or was I saving the beast for last? My last majorly daunting obstacle to having the boat sail ready is some updates to the electrical system.  What’s there works for the most part, the problem is I have no idea how.  Guess it’s a good thing I have a few important items to get installed and working correctly cause I definitely need some educating in the realm of DC electrical systems.

The main objective in these updates is adding a house bank and a couple solar panels to support it. My electrical needs are pretty basic since I opted to go without refrigeration.  I just need to be able to support lights, fans, VHF, bilge pumps, auto-helm, and the charging of a few select electronics.  So this weekend I’ll be diving in head first trying to get it all straight and hopefully learning a thing or two along the way. Wish me luck,  just thinking of all those wires has me feeling a bit fried already, I just need to CHARGE it, HAAAAAAA.
