Turning a boat into MY yacht.

The Hunter 260 I just brought down from St. Petersburg was just what I wanted, a stock boat with no improvements. This means a power system that is only a 12 VDC system, run by one battery and it powers the lights and starts the engine. Since I tied up in Windmill harbor is have been working to make this boat into my yacht. First I installed a 30 amp A/C plug, and circuit breaker panel, wired with 10agw wire. This is to eventually power my 6000 btu HVAC system. I also installed a second battery for the house. With that I installed a second DC Breaker panel, this will be for the autopilot/navigation system I am installing. It will also power a 12DC chiller box to replace the ice chest presently installed. I also plan on a new toilet with a holding tank to replace the “Porta-Potty” presently on board.

  1. Hi Don. Wow! Another yacht, very nice. The few guys left in the repair station said to say hi. Jhun is now in engineering and we are all part of Safran. Funny how the world keeps on changing. I’m glad to see that you keep blogging so we can follow your adventures. Take care my friend. Chuck
