Bryan, I am so sorry not to have gotten back to you. We have been busy and tonight is the first time in over a month that I have checked the site. We are a Watkins 25' built in 1987 in Largo Florida near Tampa. We have 535 watts of solar panels mounted above the cockpit enclosure, a water maker, 50 watt 5 CD changer stereo and an Engel freezer, 40 gal built in water tank and an 18 hp Nissan outboard as main engine. Carry our 9.5' Avon Dinghy with 5 hp Merc in davits on the stern. Pics on this site. Specs and more are available at watkinsowners.com
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.

"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"
