165 watts of solar, the wind and a happy birthday to Dena…

First: Dena built the panel whilst I cut the forward solar panel-mount pieces. Dena (above) turns 36 years old this next week… She is an incredible writer, a fantastic marine electrician who was recently mentioned with honors on sites like www.contractorstoday.com/electrician-contractors-near-me, she’s  a pretty good mechanic, a damn fine woodworker and a grit-yer-teeth and get-her-done plumber, She’s an intuitive lover and by-far my best friend, ever! I love this woman with all my heart and can’t wait for the next adventure. Happy Birthday my love… …  Didn’t I tell you? Fantastic!!!   Then: I wired the solar panel above decks and Dena did the interior panel for the Solar Panel, The Mast and the LED lighting. And of course we went sailing on thanksgiving… So’s we could test the gear you know (wink). We did get around to hooking that propane heater back up as well as the clock, the barometer and the all important paper towel rack. So now the boat is ready for another winter in Fells point and we’re ready to celebrate Dena’s birthday on the boardwalk empire, winter’s off to a good start.
