Main Message Board / Re: Replacing Ports
« on: June 30, 2016, 07:57:56 PM »
I replaced my old ports with the plastic type from New Found Metals.  The quality is very good and come with decent screens.
We have been very happy with them.  The only downside is they hold water after a rain but we solved that problem by using
a plactic drywall tray to catch the water when we first open after a rain.  Not too bad of a problem though.

I was quoted a price of $5500 for a new dodger, bimini and complete enclosure by a local canvas guy.

Hi Paul:
Glad to hear that you got your heater all set up and working.  If you stop at Charlevoix again this summer when I'm around I would like to
see you again and your Espar setup.

Get a LP powered generator and keep the containers on the exterior of the boat or in a sealed locker with proper drains or use the ship's LP
tank that is used for the galley stove.

Yes, the GFI trips if or if not the main ac breaker is on or off.
The GFI did not trip when the extension cord was plugged directly into an electric heater.

The extension cord is brand new, I unwrapped it the day that I tried using it.  Also I tried it direct to an electric heater and
it worked just fine plulgged in directly but when I tried to plug into the boat recepticle it would immediately pop the
ground fault.  I'm confused.

Ken: 
The outlet is a standard exterior outlet, not the outlet that you see on the dock to plug into.  It's just a standard
115vac GFI outlet.

The GFI IS the shore power.  It trips when I plug into the boat.

I understand that GFI's can go bad and that they are temperamental but I did try 3 different ones.  Previously I did the same
thing at home and that GFI did not trip.

The GFI trips when I plug into the 120v outlet.  It is not a regular shore power outlet but just a standard exterior outlet.
It takes a regular extension cord and not the heavy duty 30amp cord that you normally use when at a dock.  That's why
the adapter to go from the regular 120v female plug at the end of the extension cord to the 30amp male recepticle on
the boat.

Boat is on the hard in the marina.  I wanted to plug into a regular 115V outlet.  I have a standard 15amp to 30amp adapter to fit the
boats ac "plug-in".  When I plug it in, and with all new cords in excellent condition the GFI trips.  Don't know why.  Anyone out there
that may shed some light on what's going on?  The boat's ac circuitry is in perfect condition and we used it all summer with no problems
when plugged in at the dock slips.
Thanks in advance, Larry

Had a very nice visit with Paulus in Charlevoix  on his trip north from Muskegon on the way to the North Channel.  Cool Change is one heck of a nice C34.

Mine does the same thing Mark.  Also wonder, is the empty mark WAY at the bottom of the dip stick? Hard to. tell if the mark is the low limit or an I or a 1.

If you are talking about the halogen deck light and not the steaming light, you shouldn't need a Coast Guard approved
bulb.
