    First two weeks of living aboard / Tunes at sea

    It's been almost two full weeks of living aboard Delightful now, here on Bainbridge Island. I still feel like I live in a fairy tale, most of the time. The Island itself is idyllic and gorgeous,...

    Venerable Sailomat 3040 for Venerable Sailboat

    Bulk Head Repair

    The bulkhead had about 2'x1' area that was rotten. It was so soft that I could poke my finger into it. Not exactly what you would hope for from a structural member of the boat.

    Installed Solar panels and charge controller

    I did more reading and it appears rare that anything gets connected to the Load of the charge controller. Many charge controllers don't even have load

    Installed Solar panels and charge controller

    Mine has a bluetooth module, I just didn't get around to installing that yet. It also came with a remote panel. I want to have both, so plan to route

    More Solar

    I did the same. The beer is cold, the bilge is pumping and the batteries are topped off. 320 watts of peace of mind. Hardest part was figuring out where
