Due to staff illness at the shop and Covid-19 resurging. I decided to return to Wales after 6 days working on the boat and seeing my family. I will be unable to get to the boat until January 2021 when I hope to get down and start installing the wiring and do some work on the domestic plumbing. I will not update again until then. In the mean time my life returns to what it has been for most of this year, putting my head down, working, and dealing with the crap life throws at me occasionally.
I have spent the last three days stripping out old wires and identifying cables in preparation for the rewire. There are still lots of unidentified cables but I have gone as far as I dare without removing something needed. The next step is starting to rebuild it all starting with the power in. I need to move the battery charger and install the inverter and solar system and start to build the nav station back panel. I want to convert the lift up map store to be a drawer and have to re-cover a headlining panel I have all the parts for those jobs but most of the 12v distribution will have to wait for more parts.
As Wales has gone into lockdown for 17 days I have escaped to the boat to start working on the electrics. I spent all day today stripping the instruments and releasing cables from hundreds of cable ties to identify and remove unused cables and try to figure out where the cables go.
I have decided to replace the entire nav station back panel with a new board hinged at the bottom and further forward than the original. That way I can access the wiring behind if needed and the instruments will be more visible as I will be mounting them directly on the panel. I have plenty of headlining cloth so will cover the new board with that.
Its been strong winds and rain all day today, the wind speed is about 20 knots according to the instruments but I have seen the occasion gust up to 30.
