Our boat life power struggle has led us to a massive lithium battery upgrade!! Lugging around hydraulic cable crimpers is second only to lugging around dozens of 4/0 lugs. Really though, every step of this project has taken just a little longer than we expect. Not because anything broke or got lost, but because everything is just a little bit harder on a boat. Going to a store takes a little more time, a little more effort. But I think because of that required extra effort, even small things like flipping the switch and lights coming on feel oh so much more rewarding.

*Our Boat*
2008 Beneteau 49
3 cabin 2 head
Westerbeke generator
Mast, sails and rig are in excellent condition and in storage
Here’s what we *think* we know about her past. Keep in mind we bought her at auction without ever meeting the owner! The owner was sailing along and ran aground – hard. Hard enough that the keel pivoted and pushed the aft end up into the hull. This force cracked the internal grid in several places and broke a portion of the grid free from hull. At some point an inspection was done, insurance was called and decisions were made. See https://youtu.be/JJ3MruoO2q4 for how we came to own her!
