Thanks for the responses. I've contracted a local rigging company to handle this for me this time around. Will study up and be prepared next time around.

Re: Shore power - Reverse Polarity and no power at GFCI outlets

It looks like Zeehag called it. My shore power cable and the pigtail just bought were not twist locked together. The waterproof collar is too wide and they won't go together with it in place. ...

Re: Catalina 27 Mast Weight?

Agree on sub 100lb weight. I have same mast on my boat (40' overall/ keel stepped) and I had no issues moving it around this spring as I rewired/ replaced all lines.

Re: Shore power - Reverse Polarity and no power at GFCI outlets

Are you referring to both ends of the shore power cable? I am pretty sure, but will check this. The pigtail is new, and you have me wondering if I fully twisted the cable to it. At the boat end, I...

Re: Shore power - Reverse Polarity and no power at GFCI outlets

A bit more detail on this point. I do *think* there is/was power running, and agree, no way the main would have tripped. But tester shows no power, and the gfci won't trip. I don't have a picture,...

Ok, did more Googling and sound that these are in fact breakers all rated 20 amp. I'm running primarily 14ga wire with some 16ga for cabin lights. It seems this *should* be ok, but wondering where...

Sailak, on your setup, do you have a secondary line attached to the top block, or single halyard supporting all weight at top of the mast. I like this idea, but wondering if there's a SPOF at the...
