Unlike the previous day, I was up very early at 07:00 (due to a dinghy wake hitting the hull and making a loud slapping noise) and opted for the breakfast at La Sucrière so that I could connect to the internet and finally load my Kindle® with some free books.
Back on board I attacked the task of getting the Bauer dive compressor to start up without blowing out the Victron inverter/charger. It turned out that the DIP-Switch settings were inappropriate and set to only allow 11A instead of the 40-50 that the system could actually deliver and once I had that set up correctly the dive compressor ran without any problems at all.
Just as I'd finished up putting the boat back together Heinz-Dieter and Hafida came by to say hello and check out the new boat.

Victron Quattro opened up The Victron Quattro opened up to attach another RJ45 cable (for setting the system via software) and putting in the correct DIP-switch settings for loading times and current.

Organizing cables and electrical stuff I've finally gotten around to sorting out the computer and electrical cables from a plastic shopping bag into real containers.
