Re: modified malahini

I haven't been posting much, but I have been working on the boat. Not much to show, just lots of little things and prepping for other things. I did install my drain tubes yesterday. Before I painted the boat, I cut over sized holes and filled them with thickened epoxy. I put little dimples in the ce...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

That is a good idea. I have a similar table that I use in my garage. It's Lisa's table for extra seating when we have a large dinner party. It's a good thing Lisa always uses a table cloth.

Hi Joe. Welcome to the site. I believe to send PM's you need three approved posts, which you now have. Just click on private messages in upper right and it is self explanatory.

Welcome Glen. Your pictures didn't post. You need three posts before you are allowed to add pics. Also, you should add your location to your profile.

Paul: I am using marine heat shrink connectors. That is the first time I've seen step down connectors. I think they will work great. I'll pick up some. Thanks

Re: connect 18g wire to 16g

I believe soldering can not be the sole source of connection.

Re: connect 18g wire to 16g

Just as an aside: If the smallest wire allowed on a boat is 16g unless the 18g can be bundled with other wires, why do many electrical items for boats come with 18g wire? I think my problem would come up often.

Re: connect 18g wire to 16g

I found these https://www.pacergroup.net/bullet-connectors/. I could put the male on the 18 and female on the 16 and heat shrink over the entire connection.

connect 18g wire to 16g

I bought mostly 16 gauge wire to use. I didn't get any 18. My bilge pumps came and they have 18 gauge wire. How do I connect the 16 gauge from my switch to the 18 gauge on the pump? Connectors available are for 18-22 or 14-16. Which should I use? Are there other connectors available that I am not fi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looks nice Carl. Every time I see photos of your build in the garage, I am amazed at what you are accomplishing in such tight spaces. Everyone who has questions about what they can actually build in their space should look at your posts.
