OMG!!! 9 days and we are leaving for the great loop trip and Albert decides to rewire the boat. Better get this cleaned up before I get there!! (he's saying they will be done with the mess tomorrow) #missmarianne. – – – – – – – per Albert:: "Started our a/c panel replacement . Also ridding all the two wire in the boat so everything will be properly bonded and all in one location. Also new transfer switch, shore power breakers and galvanic isolation. First day we traced every circuit and did load analysis and labeled all if he and referred to the original electrical print we have with the boat."

T – 2.5 days till Great Loop trip departure and ….. he’s still rewiring the boat??? No heat, no hot water, but running the refrigerator off an extension cord to the dock. Guess I should have Amazon or Instacart deliver groceries? www.lifeofacaptain.com #missmarianne
