Generators and Hiking
04 January 2018 | Prince Rupert Bay - Portsmouth - Dominica
Mandy and Frank
We are still in Dominica.
Today is my day to run the SSB net in just over an hour.
So first a cup of tea and the blog.
Yesterday morning Ole on Lahaina who is moored next to us was very depressed that his new Fischer Panda generator was cutting out so he could not make water or coffee.
After a few hours tinkering and tidying up some of the installation and resetting the inverter/charger we managed to get it stable again.
Ole was very happy.
Fingers crossed! In the afternoon we took the dinghy across to the dock at Fort Shirley at Cabrit.
The dock was very badly damaged by the hurricane an we could not get ashore.
So later we walked to Cabrit and round to the next bay. We narrowly missed the storm on our return by having emergency beer with Brisa and Zigzag at The Purple Turtle which has just reopened and now has power again.
In the evening all four boats celebrated Ole's generator stabilization on Lahaina.
The solar panel company have said they will replace our faulty panel, but have said it was wind damage! T
oday we are off on an Island tour at 8.00.
