    Wiring & Engine Detail, part 2

    These photos show the Halon bottle in place, and also a much better look at the inside of the compartment where the meter and terminal strip are mounted.

    Liveaboard Prep 1: Removal of Wine Rack (gasp) pt. 1

    Re-Re-Re Re-Rig

    Music and lyrics by Max Headroom. So the rig is down and out on a greenhouse table where I can work on it in relative comfort. Good thing too, because there is a thick layer of snow and re-re-re...

    New Hour Meter & Halon Status light (part 1)

    After removing the old (crumbling lens) Halon status light in its escutcheon plate, I needed to install a new one. The purpose of that light is to see if the Halon extinguisher has discharged,...

    Starboard (under) Side Deck Reveal

    E29 propane locker options; stove options

    Ericson 29 - what to watch for?

    This is easy. Pull out the original tank. There will be a manufacture stamp on the tank.
