Dragging Wire, Brewing Cider
Made a bit of progress on the multiple projects over the last few days while STILL waiting on parts. Some of what I've been doing is dragging wire for the control systems that we'll be installing shortly.
New outlet in the cockpit, 2 USB plugs and one 12V DC.
I wired in a new set of outlets for usb and 12V equipment by the binnacle and pulled the wire through to wire in the marine radio aft. When we pulled the mast we were left with the deck mast step and wires, both of which rather leaked when exposed, so we've built a new box to enclose it and contain a wire race for the solar panels and steaming light.
Staining our little cover for on-deck wiring.
We also found time to make a batch of strawberry and apple cider, which is bloopiing away merrily belowdecks. Kicking bubbles once every five seconds or so, it's a particularly active batch. Should be able to rack it off and bottle in a day or so.
Of course in the midst of all this, we both came down with some kind of bug, which has left us with a kind of energy-less day today. Hopefully a good night's sleep will fix that and we'll be back at the motor install tomorrow.
