New Fresh Water Pump and Lines
04 April 2012 | In the Marina
Electrical Dave and I have both made some good progress aboard Wilparina. This week, all the new battery cables and switches should be completed, and we'll actually be able to start the engine.
One of the last electrical jobs will be to rewire the anchor windlass. Whoever installed the electric windlass many years ago actually ran an orange extension cord up to the bow of the boat. Not exactly to "spec" but it worked for many years.
I've been working on running new fresh water lines and installed the new water pump. We relocated the pump from a small locker behind the electrical panel (water and electricity don't mix well), and it's now located under the galley sink.
It's exciting to think that we'll actually be able to put the boat's interior back together soon, and take her out on the River. We still have a lot of preparation before we set sail for the San Juan's in July.
