24 July 2009 | Hot and Sunny days
No this is not a picture of our boat...but it is identical...ours is one of the few boats that can fly two spinnakers at once. We'll post a picture of ours when we're all done...we've just have much more equipment on board...way more!
Okay, so we haven't got a picture of our Wind Generator yet either..., but it arrived from Trinidad in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Long journey for sure!
So with two work days left here is our "TO DO" list to get ready to go...
Finish the welding project and install the new heat riser exhaust system.
Put up the new Wind Generator
Put on the (two) new Solar Panels and their charge controllers.
Hook up the new solenoid and foot switch for the anchor windlass.
Weld in the new bow roller (for the anchor chain to slide on).
Go up the main mast and install the wind speed and direction indicator,
While up the mast put on a new LED navigation light system (with stobe)
While still up the main mast...install a new VHF antenna.
Go up the Mizzen mast and adjust the angle of attack for the second radar.
Finish connecting the main generator water pump system
Finish installing the new hoses and pumps for the Water Maker system.
Install the monitor windvane self-steering system.
Install the repaired Jib and Staysails.
Test all sails and rigging.
Start, run, and test the engine, transmission, prop and prop shaft connection.
Last item is to haul the boat...clean and paint the bottom....check all electronics and head out...Yeeehaaa!
