Thank you all for the warm welcome. Our youngest is a sophomore in college here in Middle Tennessee. Until he's finished the closest we can get to paradise is our occasional visit to our condo in Islamorada and our 25' Trophy with twin Merc's. We do plan to liquidate here in TN and retire aboard in the not so distant future. Certainly am enjoying all the good info in this forum. Thanks again.

Good Friar-glad to hear from you again, I was beginning to worry that you were having too much fun to keep us updated!

Thanks for tuning me into these Bacchus! Did some research and they are quite the unit. Just installed a 40 amp with the remote...Very nice! (Stirling, same as the Pronautic). Mine came with the temp sensor..





Excellent pricing here: http://baymarinesupply.com/store/ele...inverters.htmlhttp://baymarinesupply.com/store/ele...inverters.html

Glad it helped.
I really like having the remote...quick glance gives you good idea what's going on w battys. I can even tell when I leave the bilge lights on while at the dock as draw is enough to notice.

No worries about thread hijack. Please welcome those newer than me and support them.

Fishing. Well, apparently it is true that I am a shit magnet. No fish were caught on either trip. We were simply feeding them with every cast.

We did have a great time with snorkeling. I got to swim and see many wonderful fish. I was able to buy corrective lenses for my mask. For the first time in my 50 yrs on this planet I can see under water. What a blessing and a pleasure to share this with my grand kids.

Next topic - batteries and chargers.

The lenses were only $30 odd dollars each. I have -4.5 in one eye and -5
In the other. I got two -5 lenses. They put them in right at the store. It is well worth the expense for me as I am totally blind without lenses. Contacts and I just do not get along so this is a perfect solution for me.

Next on list? Spear fishing for hog fish. Yum!!!!
