Another update on S/V ‘Waratah’. Most of the hull plating is in place now, with only the bow and transom to be finished before the final welding phase can start.
Meanwhile also the Yanmar engine has arrived in Cape Town. We have ordered the Balmar marine alternator for the house bank (24 VDC, 140A), main battery charger, and temperature sensors for batteries (for charge monitoring) and alternator from C-Dynamics, also in Cape Town.
C-Dynamics will also supply the main part of the electrical equipment, like battery monitor, converters and inverters, switch and fuse boards, batteries, insulation transformer etc.
We need the alternator to be fitted with the correct brackets and pulleys to the Yanmar engine, prior to shipment to Welkom.
