Im sure we will find it comes in handy once we start cruising and living away from the marina and the access to shore power. We played with it a bit this weekend and its pretty neat as it shows you the impact of every item on the battery. So we are becoming conscious of what our power loads and demands are. Time to switch some lights over to LED and get that wind generator we have been talking about. While Dirk busied himself with other projects I finally got started stripping and sanding the topside teak. I need to get busy with this as I really cant see myself doing this in the heat of summer. Of course our four day weekend ended much too quickly, and as usual we hated the idea of coming back home. We ordered a cable extension so that crossing fingers, the new radar can be installed this weekend. We also have the new anchor winch coming in tomorrow along with the new navigation pod to hold all the new instruments. After Dirk spent so much time up the mast and us trying to communicate we decided to finally order those "marriage savers" headsets I keep reading about. Got them in today and we will play with them this weekend when Dirk is dangling in the air.
Looking forward to using them when we start sailing again. Especially when I'm retrieving the anchor and doing the so called "anchor dance" that I have heard it so affectionately called. Will keep you posted on how well they work.
