How would you set up the charging system for our solar panels?
In this episode the diesel leak defeats Liz, Jamie’s had enough of trying to get the brand-spanking-new bronze seacocks to fit, and we need your help on the solar panel installation.
In other news, Millie goes missing… again. Staying in a room in the marina while the boat work goes on means she is free to roam. But she has a habit of getting stuck in places she shouldn’t.
And when Ton cracks the acrylic it becomes a swearing and laughing contest between him, Tui and Jamie.
So we have this brand new array of solar panels on the bimini roof, along both sides of the stern and on top of the davits. They are going to need a considerable amount of new cabling, but how exactly should we tackle this, in particular what circuit breakers should we use and how should they be wired. Jamie takes us through his schematic, and asks for your ideas…
On the bright side, we’ve found a professional boat canvas worker, and he’s a long lost friend of Lek’s – it was quite a reunion.
One last message. We are now in the UK for a couple of weeks because Liz’s lovely dad passed away 23rd August. He was a great man, loved by his family.
