Congrats! Think about installing an isolation transformer as protection against hot docks and marinas, or being part of the problem.

Part of the 10% I will end up spending first year right there...galvanic isolator..along with GFCI outlets, bonding system tested ground'neutrals sorted out. No transformer due to space and ventilation challenges. Plus, I've been told, transformer is the most effective but maybe a little overkill for my situation. Little things add up but you will love having the boat!

Seeing Meissner's long marriage and Star and Starman just made me feel this song with me and hubby.

Hubby B: That song expresses my feelings so well. Reminds me always how lucky I am. I really can't remember before.

Oh beautiful venue for a wedding! Congratulations on everything!

I would still make sure your bonding (on the boat) is good. Took me 3 weeks to do it correctly. Galvanic isolator? Yes please!

Most galvanic isolators are just hefty diode bridges, if they shorten, nothing will tell you unless the device has a sensing circuit. So it must be checked if you observe too much corrosion. If a one volt DC current goes through, it is faulty.

The yard that’s doing the work is supposed to make sure the bonding is good. They are supposed to do some sort of electrical testing once it’s back in the water.
That stuff is WAY over my head.

Actually....we are having a crawfish boil at our house on Sunday...the day after the wedding. Lots of family coming from out of town and they all want crawfish!
Given that it’s the day after the wedding, David won’t be boiling them himself. He’ll be too tired! So we are going to have them delivered already boiled.

Then Monday morning head out on the boat for our honeymoon trip. We don’t even know yet where we’re going to go. We’re just going to head east and play it by ear. Just want a relaxing week on the boat!

Before reading this remember what I said before...I know nothing....! I THOUGHT I read, and was told, that current Isolators should be "Fail Safe" which mean it will take a higher load and does not require a monitoring system...no?
