Just food for thought.

Volt meters are cool and necessary...but I find a digital amp meter in addition, to be worth 10 times its minuscule power draw.....one glance will tell you if something got left on when leaving the boat or hitting the bunk....took me 5 min one day to find the .5 draw it was telling me we had.

A dim light in the forward head which appeared to be off when looked at with the bright sun comming through the port....only way I eventually found it was to start switching off circuits till i located the culprit...then It was a hole lot easier to find once narrowed down.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
