day of projects - Filters for Water maker

27 March 2020 | Vero beach
Dean Perry
Good Evening…. Today was a day of projects on AB… No BIGGIE, as that’s primarily what our days consist of NOW… (self Quarantining on AB at VERO BEACH FL)
One of the pics below (or above)… is of demolition stuff take from Engine room back wall….
Gobs of unused duct, scroll fans, thermostats,
And tubing removed from AB this morning ( while changing water-maker filters)
So one project leads to many ( as is so Many times the case on a sailing vessel)

The second picture is of filters… 10 inch long 30 micron and 5 micron
Not that it was a great mystery or surprise, but we found the source of our slightly “high” PPM ( parts per million) in our made water ( watermaker on board)

Normally we’d use the watermaker in the islands, ocean or Chesapeake bay ( fairly clean salt water), but this year ( stuck in vero I decided NOT to pickle it with biocides, but use it a little every other day or two.

Anyway, you can see this harbor is not quite as clean or clear as the ocean.
No need to tell you which filters are new, and which have just been removed.

By the way, the salt content of the finished product really didn’t change
( made water still tasted great)!

I’ll just have to be a little more concerned, and a lot quicker on changing the 30 micron unit.
The remainder of the day was replacing items in some meaningful order on the back wall of the engine room -- V-belts for the Generator and the Perkins 4236; Electrical cords; Heat gun; trouble lights; etc.
Restoring the extra filters… and inventorying same…. Then once that was done…. I made a RUN to shore for more city potable water, and a garbage dump…(duct; t-stats; and tubing tossed)…
Nice CONCH blow at Sundown… joined in tonight by many boaters… NICE!!
tomorrow might be “defrost the freezer day” or it might be sand the exterior TEAK…. Depends upon the weather….
OK… on with the NIGHT !!! to tell you the truth…the awake portion of tonight might be short…. Busy day !!
