One Eternity Later….

Okay, we haven’t written a blog post in a moment. So, that being said, a lot of stuff to mention…..

We have acquired another sponsor. They do batteries πŸ”‹πŸ”‹πŸ”‹πŸ”‹πŸ”‹πŸ”‹and solar 🌞 equipment. We will tell you more about once we finalize the details. We are adding 2200 watts⚑️⚑️⚑️ worth of solar panels to the top of the boat, and we will be doing some videos to show off Captain Adam’s πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ talents at putting it all together.

It is going to be two systems, one 48 volts ⚑️⚑️⚑️ with inverters, charge controllers, and lots of fancy equipment. The other will be 12 volt to run the ship’s electronics πŸ–₯ and autopilot. We’ll have a great how-to so everyone can copy this on their own boats or learn the principles for doing an off-grid system.

Our sister boat Emanuel IV is in the Bahamas πŸ‡§πŸ‡Έ right now as are a lot of the other Manta Catamarans. We really like their new solar panel mounting system and will be building something similar. Yes, we will be adding a Starlink dish, and the radar will be moved to avoid shading the panels.

Starlink has not delivered a cruiser friendly marine system yet. We will be limited to the RV design until further design changes are made by them for a maritime system. Hopefully, Elon and the crew can get their train back on the rails.

Occasionally, we get up early enough to see a spectacular sunrise. “Old men wake up early to make their final days last longer”

Nicely done, Captain AdamπŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ.

We should do a calendarπŸ“† of your photos!

Bruno 🐢 definitely is his own dog and runs in a bumblebee pattern.

We do have a great view at the marina.
A hunter’s moon a few weeks ago.
This beast 🦎 hangs out at the post office 🏀. He is an obstacle every time we go to get our mail. These iguanas are not native and fall out of the trees when the weather gets cold.

Key West is treating us to a lot of great sunsets.
Another great view from our marina.
“Where do you live?”
Bruno is going to enter the Ernest Hemmingway look-alike contest this year! He had too many dog waters at Sloppy Joes this night and slept the whole next day.
Even Mickey has a bad night once in a while.

Do you need a diver?

Ty is one of the most diligent workers in the Florida Keys. He is a professional diver 🀿 and is going to college to become a master at his craft.

He recently changed our zincs on Bikini Bottom ⛡️ and routinely cleans our hull. Barnacles, clams, and hull worms don’t have a chance! Notice our Prop Speed has held up well after a year and a half! The saildrives look fantastic.

Please contact Ty if you are in the Lower Keys and need a professional diver.


Look for exciting videos on our new solar 🌞 panel and battery πŸ”‹ updates!

See you soon! 🐟🐠🐑🦈🐒🐚🐬🐳
