Hi from OzePete, another refugee!

Hi all I'am OzePete, another refugee (or escapee!) from another place.
I am an almost retired 74 year old refrigeration engineer / DC refrigeration system manufacturing company owner who now enjoys trying to help those with marine refrigeration problems.
If you need some assistance with an on board refrigeration problem, then I may be able to help.
Cheers OzePete

Welcome Pete - good to see you here. Many of us are refugees from that other place.

Re: Hi from OzePete, another refugee!

Thanks for that Mark, I was starting to get a complex! But obviously I am not really 'the lone ranger' and going by the emails I've received lately, well let's just say keep the flood gates open mate!

Cheers OzePete

Re: Hi from OzePete, another refugee!

Welcome. I've never spent any real time over there. I assume you mean CF. I think I have an user name, but not sure. Sounds awful.

Great to have an HVAC pro here. I think that's the least prevalent DIY skill and most barter-able.

If you mean me, Denise, I have no idea what you mean. Was this something with Minnesail perhaps? Often confused.

Re: Hi from OzePete, another refugee!

I probably missed the ball, because your emoji's aren't coming through. They only show the word emoji with a number inside brackets. Not sure why.

Cheers. Carrying on.

No refrigeration on my little 22' boat, so it sure wasn't me.
