'Chortle' is our new family sailing boat. She is a Sadler 29, with bilge keels, twin skinned and polyurethane filled hull (apparently unsinkable) and was built in 1984. She has received considerable amounts of TLC this summer, a refurbishment infact from dad and we now begin our adventures.

Well just spent last two days feverishly at the drawing board in books, on the computer and the phone, working out every milli amp and wire of our brand new to be electric system. I have in my hand a wiring diagram and fat wadge of online purchasing receipts, ouch! Comprehensive? i hope so, now have gone and ordered most of it and i have three highly qualified electrical engineering friends yet to give me there opinions on my calculations and schematics. Might scan and email them off now so i wont unwrap more heavy metal sea god offerings than i need too.
