Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Make sure your converter has a low voltage shutoff and a low voltage indicator. The converter itself doesn't have a shutoff or indictor. I presume you are thinking of a shutoff to prevent draining the 48V battery bank? I'll check to see if the BMS can be programmed to stop supplying the converter i...

Make sure your converter has a low voltage shutoff and a low voltage indicator.

Did you consider a small, detachable 12v circuit with a solar battery tender? In this case detachable means you can charge it from the diesel alternator but when the motor is not running the circuit is severed.

Re: Puzzle cut panel length

Buy the sheets with the puzzle precut and designed to result in 16’ lengths... I’m pretty sure Jeff sells them.

As always, you've answered the question before it was asked.

How much notice will we get prior to launch? Trying to decide on the next vacation and Mrs agrees that a SkinnyD launch is well worth leaving openings in schedules and budgets.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

As a hippo/human hybrid, have you had someone with a diameter larger than a bean pole try getting in there with the decks in position? ;) I once found myself securely wedged in the bowels of the Shannon at one point. Blocks may have been used to get my posterior dislodged and back on the top sides. ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Perfection is much more then an "eye of the beholder" concept. It is much more then the aesthetic and comes down to the entire "point" of a things existence. A perfect example of this would be Eric1 and Fuzz looking at a random hull. Eric will see it as seaworthy, functional AND then evaluate for fi...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

There are two key points, but they are effectively the same for building, diagraming, and labeling. 1. Start with a plan. 2. Document every change you make to the plan. That's all we are talking about here. If you start from a plan and write down each of the changes, you will automatically have a co...

I remember XKCD has a series on these a while ago (like a decade). Each was uniquely hilarious.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Ah... I see... Basically copy my "hey you! employee you! Read this doc I told you to read 5 weeks go, and then COMPLETELY REDO WHAT YOU'VE SPENT THE LAST FOUR WEEKS DOING!!" I think I could manage that. Do you think pointers to "standards" for imagery and nomenclature is needed? I've had to do that ...
