We’re back in the water and in the process of loading the boat and putting the equipment on for the trip. There is a lot to do like tightening the rigging, reloading the anchor chain and rode, flushing the water system from the winter antifreeze to name a few of the items. I’ve had to replace the solar controller that stopped working for the solar panel on the top of the Bimini. For this trip I’m taking a power cooler to use as a fridge so that I do not need to make ice in the freezer. That saves space from the water bottles and the work to remember to switch them to the cooler to keep the perishables cool. Of course that also means installing another outlet in the aft cabin to be able to plug it in.
