Hello All

I was visiting with MSarsfield today and he indicated that the electrical system in the boat is reaching full capacity. I am going down to the boat on Friday the 2nd and will take a quick look -

As I understand it we are getting power from a spot in the back of the museum feeding to the boat, and are primarily using it for internal lighting and misc items?

Do we have a power panel set at the boat (inside or out)?

Thanks
Charlie

If you can reach Vaughn Newkirk...he'd be the man w/ the answer.  He did the wiring for the AC units, so I'm not sure what he actually installed in that regard.

I forgot to mention that there are individual cut-offs/breakers next to the A/C units on deck, but these are strictly for those two units to meet building codes.  There are other A/C and fan/blower control panels in the boat.  The only way that I know of to kill all of the lights/power at once is either from the utility pole or the main switch in the museum (which is how Rick shuts the place off every night).

Electrical is a big problem.  We really need to assess how things are wired internally.   Just ask for me and I will show you everything we know.....
