BOAT RESCUE, PART 16: Lots of pictures!

Previously: PART 15: PLAYING WITH LED LIGHTING

It's been a busy time for us this year, and I've neglected my restoration updates, so I'm going to post lots of pictures with as little chatter as possible.

Here goes, I'll start with electrical progress:
Junction block in head, for mast wiring and interior lights.

Electrical panel in progress.

Electrical panel, still a work in progress!

Gantz 30 Watt Solar panel trial fit.



Rear of battery switch, also battery fuses.

Battery boxes with group 24 AGM batteries.
Skinny VHF/GPS install in Nav Station panel.

LED lamp, VHF/GPS, and dual power outlet in nav station.
Moving on to the head and holding tank:
Mock-up tank and old head in position.


Mock-up tank sans back. Capacity: 45 liters.

Final tank glued together with laminated curved back.

Inside of tank prior to epoxy/glass coating.

Blogger editor is playing silly bugger again, so I'll continue in the next posting.
