Re: Charging House Batteries

Cindy has a Cpap machine that she uses for sleep.We got one with cords that can use 12 volt battery.Unsure of how long that would last.All my interior lighting is LED so not much is used. :D Figure a solar panel with trickle charger might be enough.

Re: Fitting chine on the Slither

Those bottom battons might be a blast as well(when you get that far).I kerfed mine 15 or so inches on the front and bending down and wired to build form.after ply is screwed down.release the front of the battens after appling glue.otherwise your going to be fighting those when putting ply on. :D

Re: Jim's Michigan Zip

Re: Fitting chine on the Slither

I laminated my chines on"Chug" .In some joints could add shim in back to bring it out so frame doesn't contact ply but chines will(when faired to fit.Sent a pic of intended joint at bow.Stem needs to be faired a little so chine can be screwed to stem and ply lays flat across all.

Re: Charging House Batteries

I'm kinda in the same pickle.I'm thinking on using solar panels mounted on roof of "Chug" to charge house batteries.Not sure if my Yamaha 9.9 high thrust has big enough charging system to handle all the batteries.Just not sure how big to go.My roof is 8 ft x 10 ft. :D
