Passing time…

manualsWinter is always the hardest time for us to get through and having Intuition V on the hard is never fun, but the only option for now. Once a month we go to charge the batteries and depending on the snow fall we may go more often just to make sure that the tarp is holding.

We are preparing for all the installations that we’ll have to do and that means a lot of user manuals to read. Sounds boring, right? However, we are so eager to have it all completed that it is turning out to be a lot of fun and time is flying by.  We are in March already and 19 days until spring!calendar-pages

Two new cables need to run inside the mast, one to replace the radio antenna and the other for the wind instruments. The transducer runs inside the hull and the windlass too. For the radar we’ll install a pole on the stern and run the cable inside. The most important part of all of this is to secure all the wires and protect them from chafing.

During all this reading we have decided that the windlass will be connected to the starter battery since most of the time we’ll be anchoring and hauling up the anchor while under power. We have dropped and hauled the anchor under sail too, thus a clear anchorage, lots of space and the winds from the right direction are pivotal for this maneuver.
