Re: solar panels stopped working

Either just to confuse things or perhaps because they both have the same lifespan. I always try to remember to look for the simplest explanation though it seems almost human nature to expect the worse case. ;)

Re: FREEDOM YACHT MAST REPAIR

Can anyone tell me how much epoxy I might require to do each mast? Im noy sure if Ill do one or two sock layers, but I'm leaning toward two using the dynel, unless anyone can provide a reason to do one or to use fiberglass.

Re: is this the same boat ? 33 and 35 f

I'm aabout to jump in and take the same plunge with Seasops masts. I like the idea of using the 207 Hardner a...

I have pulled out the original wiring bundle and was surprised to find that the original method of wrapping the wire bundle in a thick layer of foam neopr...
