After yesterday's sail brought a couple of small problems to the fore today has been spent in minor repairs and preparations for departure. I e-mails with Audrey at Electec and they will have the replacement elbow for the generator in a couple of days, so I am ready to head out and northwards. After I got the dinghy out of storage and inflated, manhandled the engine onto the dinghy and got it installed and running I got some new dock neighbors who seemed more interested in hitting my boat and the one on their far side than parking their boat. In the end they got “parked” without too much problems and are now next to me, with 3 power cords and a TV connector hooked up (not bad for a 36 foot Hunter, considering I have only one power cord pulling 8A with the AC running. The Link10 has been blinking like crazy, so I finally got the 4 new batteries out (they are heavy) and replaced the fuse at the device, so now it is telling me exactly how many amp-hours I have left in the bank. The pictures at the left are the upper 4 batteries, the picture at the right is the lower level of 5 batteries (4 house batteries and 1 starting battery)
Update - those new neighbors managed to scratch up my hull after all and didn't mention a word!
