SWF, 56, world cruiser and ex professional crew. Now living and casually sailing in SE Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay. I still have the wanderlust to see more of the world.....I just hate when work gets in the way!
Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Caribbean, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, Venezuela, Columbia, San Blas Islands, Central America, Pacific coast of Mexico, East and West Coasts of USA, Bahamas. There are still lots of places to go on my list!!

"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"
"Hey Mike - I agree with you that there is no physical problem with the unit running. My problem is the drain on the battery. As a weekend / once / twice a year cruiser, I don’t have solar to recharge my batteries (yet). I…"
