The Radar / Plotter is linked to a LED TV scree inside the cabin and and a small repeater screen for the cockpit. She has a 560 A/h house batterie a 130A/h for the engine and another 130 lives in the v berth for the bow thruster. 2 50 Watt semi flexible solar panels keep that lot topped up and on the engine I have 2 x 90 amp alternators to charge while running with artificial wind. For the electrical tools I run on board, like my metal lathe / mill or welding equipment, I have a 3600 watt inverter. I must admit, that I don't have as much living space on Tiki as most 35' boats have, but she is a floating machine shop and with the tools I have on board, I could build another boat ...just need the material.

If you might get this far pm me. I could have an extra mooring in Seal Harbor this summer.

That goes for the rest of you Scallywags, too! Arrr Arr!

Did you know Mt. Desert Island has an island wide FREE buss service. Every 20 min or so you can hop on a modern propane fueled bus and go anywhere on the island. Check it out on the web. I love it. L.L. Bean sponsors it. I can sail to Bar Harbor and come home on the bus. Then take the bus back and sail home. That is if I need to get home for some good reason. Don't need a car to get anywhere.

I just bought the strip of copper and "borrowed " some bronze 3 inch bar stock from work and turned that into washers, then ran the thick copper cable from bolt to bolt and to the mast and lifeline stancheon.
