Re: Understanding the CAPAC

The actual sensor you will probably have to buy. I believe it is silver/silver chloride. Don't know of any homemade ones. You could call boatzincs.com and talk to them.

You can put a note there to remind yourself or wire them like this. This is how a 3-way switch is wired. The only thing is there will be no set on or off position, but you can turn it on or off at either location.

You might be able to use some small hose or tubing from the pump to the steering cable, with hose clamps on each end to seal the ends. I use a small oil can that pumps for simila...

Re: Sunken 32`

Re: Bridge gauges

Once they are clean, you can use Lemon Pledge on them. It has a wax in it that will hide tiny scratches and keep dust from sticking. Good for sunglasses, motorcycle helmets, airplane windshields, any plastic lens. Just wash with soap and water first, then seal with the Pledge.

Re: 28 on the way to Uruguay

Following the Saga. Very interesting! Shows how much can be accomplished with perseverance. Yet some people are afraid to buy a boat because it's 100 miles away. (hauled mine to Alaska)
