Rinse. Repeat.

This is a shot of my favorite places to spend an early morning on Galveston Bay. This shot has absolutely nothing to do with what is going on with the boat and refit just now. This is because we have spent the last few days installing our new galvanic isolator and the photo of that would look something like this:

Yeah. I thought a bench on a dock at sunrise was a better choice as well. For those who want to know, its a Guest 30 amp galvanic isolator which along with our zincs should help protect Ceol Mor from stray current.

We haven't been moving forward on the wiring this week because of the isolator install as well as the need to rebed a port light. A port light that has already been rebedded. *sigh* Apparently we did not get quite enough compression on it. So despite being carefully installed with butyl tape our first rainfall in forever gave us the information we needed, namely, that we needed to rebed that portlight once again. So out it came and was once again rebedded. Hopefully, this does the trick this time. The only thing worse than having to repair stuff is having to redo it immediately because you didn't get it quite right.

Now about that wiring....


  1. Very pretty! Way prettier than the galvanic isolator!

  2. That photo is a stunner... and wet people get it all the time... dry folks do when they get to the shore or are rich enough to live at it. I have a collection of skies... it keeps growing...

    Look for the green flash~
