Led's

Posted on August 12, 2010 at 3:25pm 1 Comment

I have just finished changing all my lighting over to LED's, it was definitely a trial and error effort but here are the advantages:

1. my Amp hours has been reduced (with all lights, cabin heads, galley nav, anchor light etc on) from 44 amp hours to 6

2. my average amp hours has been reduced from 18 to 2,5, (this would be at anchor with the salon lights on)

3. my anchor light uses 1.2 amp hours versus 8

The Chesapeake Bay is a great place to sail spring, summer and fall.  It can get a bit cold and wet in winter so that is a great time to head south.  I am sure you know all this but having lived aboard in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Annapolis I was always amazed how many new quiet peaceful or fun places existed.  Enjoy each day.  Lola

Ahoy Cap,

I have several friends in Mexico along the Pacific coast and up into the Sea of Cortez. If I can finish my projects before the bad weather sets in along the western coast of the U.S., I would like to winter around Banderas bay and head up into the Sea for spring before the real heat establishes itself.

Thanks very much for the advice Ron, appreciate it.
We aren't going any where near POP and Yes we have up dated our shots.
I would love to talk to you and hopefully will get the chance on the way to Miami on Monday.
As you can imagine last minute is always crazy.
Take care

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
