Re: Vanishing Seamanship

Interestingly, I just did have all my electronics fail. The PO had wired ships power, the inverter charger and a 1200 watt/12v windlass to the same 200 amp breaker. When it popped re-setting the anchor, everything went dead, except the engine, which luckily was already running.

I'm very glad that I had completely independent luddite naviguessing tools - and a clear moonlight night - and low tide on arrival. Without that, the outcome might have been very different.
