    Two Honda 2000 paralleled in place of shire power?

    I still haven’t picked up the boat. The money transfers took longer than expected. I did get the wen combiner unit and picked up another Honda 2000. I have a 30 amp shorepower chord now too. It’s currently hooked up with the 50 amp. So in my mind, I’ll fire both Honda’s up and plug in the...

    Almost officially official. Catalina 400

    It was about a 9 month process in a way to get this boat. I lost my last 40 ted brewer in a storm in February. I was getting back on my feet when I spent 2.5 months and about five grand in escrow on a 43 Bruce Roberts that sank in its slip after I demanded a haulout survey. Bottom was trashed...

    Almost officially official. Catalina 400

    The outriggers are for fishing. The boat seems to move at pretty good speeds. There’s spots on weekend trips where I can load up on fish hopefully under sail only. A few large fish bags and I can make quite a bit of money selling the fish here on Maui. So kill three birds with one stone. Fish...

    Electric winch wired to 400 ah lithium bank

    I just purchased, well the check is on the way from the lender, a Catalina 400 mkii. The owner added an electric winch mostly for the main halyard but didn’t wire it up. He has the selenoid and switch I believe in the store room. I’m wondering if I need two gauge or one gauge. The distance from...

    Two Honda 2000 paralleled in place of shire power?

    This is what I ordered off amazon. I should be able to connect the 30 amp for the ac and zantrex. The 50 amp shore power is being used at the dock right now. I’ll store the 50 amp cable and buy a short 30 amp cable for generators to boat use at my mooring. If possible, I’ll use a longer 30 amp...

    Two Honda 2000 paralleled in place of shire power?

    Ooh! That’s promising. I might start with one and check out the inverter. It is lithium batteries with a zantrex 5000 watt. 590 solar. Here a pic of what I was looking at for a parallel going to a 30 amp shore power chord.
