Thanks David, I appreciate the encouragement.

I'm having the blocks moved so I can finish the sanding today. Hopefully that will mean painting will be done this weekend, and that will leave just the system test before I drop her back in the water.

I had an ABYC tech look over my setup so far. He found a couple things that I wouldn't have even known to look for. Nothing I did was flat out wrong, but a couple of things could use improvement. All the major stuff, like where everything is positioned, was fine. I'm going to hire him to help me make some changes that I am uncomfortable doing by myself, like pulling out the diesel tank and repositioning the waste tank to make room for the battery box. Since that will now be located behind a bulkhead, I'll have to relocate the breaker somewhere more convenient.

So a little more design work to do, then I can finish the install.
