Fixing the Boat in Exotic Places

Drying sails from yesterday's rain, we were on a slow broad reach NW 5-6, only going 2.5 knots. Went ashore for our Starbuck's fix, bought a couple things at Harbor Chandlery, and picked up a few provisions. I went to replace a switch that controlled the macerator for the rear head, I found that the wires providing power to the macerator no longer had voltage! As I trouble shot the problem, I determined that the power came from the port cabin light breaker which is always on. Everything else was working on that circuit. I was looking for another fuse in line for the macerator, but couldn't find it. So...I ran a new duplex wire to supply the macerator with the power it needed. Hours later, in fact midnight, I was done, and had restowed all the gear that I had to move for the project. By the way, this was a critical issue for using the head on the boat......!
