I have made progress with electricity

What is left is the solar panels and their regulators.

The VHF radio and AIS I will install hopefully with professionaell help coming winter.

Below is a picture of the panel.

the 4 red cables coming in is from the 4 batteries. By disconnecting respectivly fuse I can check the status of each battery.

The lines at top is stearing cables and jammers to the port rudder.

There is not a whole lot of electrucity. I will have a fan to cool me when crossing the equator becouse in a small boat the temperature at noon can rise to 35 degrees C

To be continued…

The four 55 Amp gel betteries are now installed.

I have wrapped them in rubber with adhesive that the rubber does not slip. The will work as schock absorber.

Below a picture:

Its a real close fit in all directions. The batteries are heavy still I had to press on them to get them down. I do not think I can get them out again. Hopefully I never need to.

Thera are four of them in two compartments. On top is more rubber as schock absorbers when capsizing.

The lid is screved down with 11 M6 screws

The lead is now also stowed in its compartment.

To be continued…
