which is a compromise between having a wet system in rains and a huge dry box.
it has been suggested by a friend who sails a ct 41 that we can make out of re-sourced woods , preferably teakwood, a set up like a box in which my electrickery bus bars and breakers will sit and remain out of path of incoming rainwaters, which seem to be the main cause of breaker failure in my electrics.
all i need is santa claus. ok so this has an unknown investment level. we gonna make the box and trim out of my “not gonna die” planks i placed over my cockpit well so i donot fall in by accident. . can find other planks for that. these are perfect for the electrickery.
this step will make it easier to organize my electrickery when it is time to connect all the wires that others have disconnected and relocated to no function hell. those include all instruments , wind and navigation, radar, otto von pile it, and navigation lights and radio. whoopee.. we can “unchuck” my boat finally. yes the clown from fla who sabo’d my boat did disconnect items he was told not to touch. unfortunately bad work is a long term affair with interminable and semi predictable consequences, each and all involving more work and more outflow of dollars.
and so we work on… at least the idea of this box has lightened my headache developed by the stress of uncertainty.. uncertainty of birds future at sea–cannot sail without specific issues repaired and repaired correctly. as i donot wish flames in my boat, i choose to do this right.
as we repair these long standing issues the load of repair is lighter, but pricing aint cheap. i am trying to utilize my resources as i receive them and during their tenure in this marina. this resource is a transient travelling ct owner who has successfully refit his ct to be a quality voyaging boat. none of us is financially independent, so we pray for santas blessings to assist us in and with this coming work.
