Hmmm… boat caught fire, may delay trip

Well, I was all excited today getting ready to go and then my boat caught fire.

Well, it didn’t totally catch fire, but where the electrical cable connects to the boat there was a smell of burning and then the power on my boat didn’t work anymore. When I looked at it, it had really burned the cable… coulda been a full fledged fire by the look of it.

Don’t know why that happened… might have something to do with the 2 new a/c units drawing too much power (they draw 11 each, so 22 combined… and I have a 30amp power system, so they do push the system pretty hard)… but a circuit breaker should have popped instead of the boat catching fire (or so I understand how these electrical things work).

Well, the Mexicano’s will come tomorrow and look at it. If this takes longer than a day or two to figure out I will really start to lose it… I was so stoked about hitting the ocean…

So… Sail-less in Seattle (Acapulco) continues…
