  1. P=IV for mini Shop Vac

    Electrical Systems
    Doing some 12V re-wiring planning with my limited brain skills. I use a little Shop Vac Hang-On frequently when doing projects aboard, but have only ever used it on shorepower. Haven't tried it with my 1000W inverter yet, but would like to have that option. Shop Vac Shop Vac says it's 1HP...

  6. Barnacles!

    Gear & Maintenance
    Another newbie question possibly. After a complete tune-up and unfortunately close to two months at the dock with 70+ degree waters, i found we could barely move, presumablt due to barnacle build up on the prop and shaft. I donned a mask and gloves and cleared the prop and some of the shaft...
