electrifying progress

We have finally managed to update the wiring from the old and dodgy fuse system. Yay BREAKERS!!!

We had a couple of instances of rooms and outlets going down and we just couldn't trust the old fuse system. We couldn't trace it so if Greig wasn't around no one knew what fuse to replace. Plus at $6 per fuse it was getting expensive.

So we have rewired the ship and all the rooms to this new panel and have transferred the heating of the hot tub off the woodstove back onto shore power.

Now it is a whole lot less confusing.

Much safer I should think.

That's a step I have to take sometime soon - I don't even know where to get the panel and breakers yet.
