Chuck,
I like your approach to troubleshooting. Every time -- every SINGLE time -- something has gone wrong on that boat, it's been something very simple. A friend of mine, who, incidentally, also has a C30, couldn't get his diesel started. He mucked around with it for two entire mornings, and still couldn't figure it out. The more he worked, the more convinced he became that the problem was a big one and the solution expensive and complex. He called a mechanic who looked at it for ten minutes and found that the alternator cable had corroded.

God, Sailhog is stupid... If he had that pos. and neg. lines up his ass he'd know where they were!!!!!!

Just kidding Hog... just a couple of weeks ago i could not figure out what the hell was going on (why i had absolutely NO power with everything hooked up.) Turns out i had put everything back except the parallel jumper between the batteries. Man i felt D-U-M-B!!!!

Not sure about the battery drain but my money is on sailingdog to figure it out.

If it's not the simple solution - you don't waste a lot of time and effort ruling it out at least.

Bawaaaaaaaa! I prefer to call it her "man-gina." It's really difficult having sex with a C30 with it way down there by the waterline. The first time I "did it" I had to borrow a friends dink and sort of get on my knees. It was nice... just a bit awkward. People at the marina just stared like I was some weirdo. People are weird...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
