Re: AC recharging

Thanks everyone. It seems this is not a DIY project. I guess I'll have to get a Pro to look at it.

AC recharging

Re: How do you rig your jacklines?

When singlehanding offshore I rig a tight line from the bow cleat to the stern cleat, and outside of and high up on the shrouds I guess you couldn't call it a jackline. It's more of an additonal...
