Shrink Wrapping with a Hair Dryer

23 September 2012 | In Laws
Keith, it is technically Fall, but still pretty hot in Tucson
For those of you who have been down this road, the image of shrink-wrapping wiring with the hair dryer brings back memories, doesn't it. I guess it works better with smaller gauge wire and wrap. This job was a bit more than the the Conair could handle so we wound up using a lighter to finish the job. I have to say it was bitter sweet finishing up the wiring upgrades on Boker Tov and securing everything back in place. There were some tough times, but good times too as I slowly learned how this boat and its trailer are wired and, even more slowly, rebuilt and improved the parts of the electrical system that needed it. There are really just a few things on my list before the sailboat is ready for her next cruising adventure, set to take place in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
