AGM Mounting positions

When I said 'close to what I was thinking' I just meant the position of the battery. Can you mount one that way in a box? Also, is there anywhere to get a copy of ABYC standards without paying a...

AGM Mounting positions

That's actually close to what I was thinking. How is the battery supported? I see the straps, anything special supporting the weight?

AGM Mounting positions

I got some rather large (Group 8D) AGM batteries for a song. I'm re-wiring the whole boat, which allows me to put them wherever I want and their size won't allow me to put them where the old ones...

Flash Evaporation?

@Capt. Tom
It is true there would be many thermodynamic equations needed to actually design a working system, but I do know that if properly designed, the energy required to run the compressor would...

Flash Evaporation?

This thread caught my eye because I was contemplating building one myself. I have not seen or heard of any small enough for a boat. They are quite simple to design (even the large industrial units...

Flash Evaporation?

Flash evaporation is more efficient by far. That is why ships use it. The vacuum pump's purpose is not to 'create vacuum', but to remove non-condensible gasses (mainly air). The vacuum is created and...

AGM Mounting positions

Hi! I've read in many places that one of the advantages of AGM batteries is that they can be mounted in many odd positions that wet cells cannot. In every picture I've seen or account I've heard,...

electronic rust proofing

A cathodic protection system will protect against that as well. Any time you expose two different metals (I.e. your boats hull and anything else that might be exposed) to an electrolyte (seawater)...

electronic rust proofing

It's called cathodic protection and yes it does! Ships use it to protect their hulls. It applies a voltage to the hull that counteracts the voltage that would be created by electrolytic corrosion. On...

Hull Composition

I've been reciting the iron keel on my Cheoy Lee Clipper 42. The old coating mostly fell off on haul out. I've stripped it to bare metal, re-coated with POR-15, and filled and faired with thickened...

I plan to have a DC computer onboard (runs directly off of 12V DC, designed for cars and uses very low power). I would like to interface it with as many instruments as possible to make it versatile. ...
