Electrical Fuse panel

I am new to boat ownership. I have a Catalina 30 (1986) on the far left of the electrical panel there are two knobs one labeled "S" the other "T" there is a cigarette lighter between them. Can somebody tell me what they are for? .

They pull in and out similar to the engine kill switch

Suggest you ask the Catalina Owners Association in CA. They are very helpful.

I think these are Space/Time controls. Very handy when you really do not want to be where you are at that time. Not sure of the use though. I think you leave the S pushed in and T pulled out if you want to stay where you are but move through time. I think the T stands for Time or Tachyon, not sure which. Pull both if you want to move through both Space and Time.

Do not pull just the S or you could end up in a wall or something.

On the other hand you might want to check out International Catalina 30 Association

Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P
