This update we have some catching up to do with photos.
The inverter system provides both 115VAC and 230VAC (on boats with just 230VAC the fourth inverter serves light loads like electronics and small galley appliances). Splitting the sources like this provides back up and reduces idling current when the stack of three inverters are not required for heavy loads.
Starting batteries are held in place with this lovely aluminum weldment.
A “reed” (magnetic) float switch. These are used to control bilge pumps and send high water alarms. When used with pumps the reed switch current is used to trigger a relay or solenoid through which the pump power travels.
The hydraulic damage control is plumbed into the five compartments of the hull. Each has its own pick up and shut off valve. This is in the engine room.
The great room furniture is now well underway. This will become the starboard settee. The panel on top represents a 42″ TV screen which pops up from behind the settee.
Looking down at the top and the closure panel.
Hulls one and two are now undercoated, ready for antifouling paint.
