Re: Battery Switch

It is common in the industry for House Bank to be Bank 1 and Engine Bank to be Bank 2. But I have had boats wired the other way and it makes no difference electrically. As I said above, it depends on how you have your banks set up. If both your banks are identical it doesn't matter at all which is w...

Re: Battery Switch

Well it can depend on how many batteries are in each bank (and what kind they are). I have one flooded lead acid in my engine start bank (#2 on my boat) and 2 AGMs in my house bank (#1 on my boat). But yours may be different.

Re: Corrosion, zincs and bonding

Very interesting document. I know you had a lightening strike. I would be very interested in knowing the full extent of the damage as well as what protection you built in afterwards. I will search for subjects on the site to see if you already wrote all that up somewhere. Thanks Geoff

Re: Electric head replacement

So did you replace either the same model? I have a manual Raritan but thinking of going electric. Have you been happy with yours?

Re: Electrical Panel Meters

I found someone sellin Bass reconditioned meters and replaced my failing ones with those. I like the way the look but they have limited functionality. I recently purchased a Bluesea OLED boat monitor that monitors 2 battery banks, 120v system, and either two bilge pumps or two tanks or one of each. ...

Re: Antal two-way traveler winch install

I spent time working on my traveler yesterday. Turns out two of the blocks were completely frozen. I ended up lining all blocks and the traveler cars (yes there are two) with McLube One Drop.
