The Wire Arrives
11 June 2008 | Deaton Yachts, Oriental, NC
I had to buy wire. Wire is expensive. West Marine wanted well over $600 for the wire I needed. Matt found it on the internet for 1/4 that. 12 volt wind turbines produce a lot of power when the wind is big. That power requires a large gauge wire to pass through to charge the battery. Wire is made of copper. Copper is expensive these days. Lugging the box with the spools of wire from the parts department at Deaton to the boat was a struggle. I used the scooter for part of the way. It won't be long before you see pictures of wire being strung. Until then, we are moving forward slowly but surely.
