After a huge amount of work over several weeks, we had our big day: The first test run of our new generator. Spoiler Alert: It worked!
A few weeks ago we we had our old generator lifted out of the boat, and sent off with the recycler. It had done a great job, and lived a long live, but the availability of spare parts was a serious issue.
Bert Jabin’s Yacht Yard did a fantastic job getting all the heavy lifting and logistics done. Really a first class outfit. The new generator dropped in with as little effort as the old one took to leave.
There was a lot of serious thought and calculations that went into the decision of what kind of generator we wanted. We have gradually been moving our boat from a 1990’s electrical system to something more appropriate to the 21st century.
