As part of our plans to set up for blue water cruising we have a few planned changes we wish to make (over time) to the power around the boat. One of the first things was to get an inverter and later we will supplement the battery capacity with a third domestic battery and some wind and solar generation.

Its not a hard modification to do, but it is something you have to take care with as one side is shore power voltage (240V for us) and the other is huge cables (70 sq mm) onto big batteries.

I’ve put a write up on the yachtconosur website under mods if anyone wants to know what we did and all the bits for our install.

Anyway, if the link works here it is all plumbed in.



 

Now got a pattern for the arch on the stern, just need our fabricator to get it built – i’m think it will be a while though as he is quite busy – perhaps sometime this year!!

"Just a thought- anyone know the brand or manufacturer of the water tank monitoring system? Is there a control box that may send test signals to the strips mounted on the tank? Sam"

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

"Sadly, no. I have inspected every piece of known equipment. Every radio, handheld, etc. Thanks for the ideas though. I am very receptive to all ! Truly baffling. Sam"
