This one is bittersweet. On one hand, the battery upgrade is a smashing success. Kirk completes the installation of our new battery bank, and we now we have all the juice we need. On the other, our arch project is a complete and utter disaster. We can’t tell you how glad we are to be done editing this episode. We wanted to do the experience justice by telling you the whole story, but we’re not going to miss having to relive this period of our lives! 

Looking back through all this footage, I’m in awe of all the research, preparation, self-education and labor Kirk put into upgrading our house battery bank. With electrical projects, you can really only get it right, OR, you get it terribly wrong. Kirk knocked this one out of the park.

Stick with us… That whole ‘going-sailing’ thing is right around the corner!
