Re: Inverter/charger ????

Let's figure a 160A real world load for a 900W microwave..

Re: A Not so Good Experience with a Sailnet(er) transaction

Re: West Marine 15A Battery Charger

There is nothing "good" about those chargers....;)

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

I know the BVI is USD but my buddy Jay, whom I traveled with, got whacked with transaction fees. I can't recall his credit card issuer but even though it was USD they still boned him...:mad:
