8 MARCH, 2017 - POST # 8 - A SIX MONTH OUTFITTING !
Why I expected a less time and money-spent here, I dunno. it has taken 5-6 thousand dollars worth of materials to get to where we are, (and my labor).
Then, there is the "adaptation" part of it all . . . the new A-10 berth has 120/240 50 amp electric service, we currently have only 30 amp 120, and So fea was "built" for that 30 amp voltage (back in 1979), at Winchester Bay I added another 30 amp inlet and wired it into a separate breaker bus (for two 30 amp inlets), but, the main panel really can only handle 30 amp - not the twin 30's--nor the 50 amp/240 !!).
Dock power At the new berth (A-10) is 65 feet from dock services (we are now adjacent, with only a 5 foott run) . . . surprise-surprise ! there are no cleats at Florence either ... only a bull rail, so, new lines are needed.
Longer docklines, longer electric cable, a longer dockwater hose, and a new 50 amp breaker panel, plus a wire-in . . . a work party of fun, and another $2,000.00.
