- Travel (again) to Portland - Transportation, Moorage, and Dining Out reflect that.
- Purchased bottom paint in preparation for hauling out - Maintenance.
We continue to not need to fire up the Generator as the Solar Panels are working great. In fact, the 157Ah/day average is above the predicted results for August. But then in August there was NO RAIN - a 1st ever recorded in this part of the world - well, Ever being "Ever" if one only looks back 121 years :-)
In September we can look forward to another trip to Portland - plus the hauling of Viking Star at the end of the month. Days are getting shorter so we can likely see hours starting to creak up on the Hurricane heater - plus I am sure there will come a cross over point where the Solar Panels no longer cover our needs. Modeling predicts September to be only 99Ah/day, while October is only 50.
