The Auto Pilot is DONE!!!!
Everything has finally come together and Warren is done with the Auto Pilot . The picture to the right shows the control panel....which almost became another whole story of its own.
Now we have just two more things to do ..Wait for Warrens spare glasses to come in and fix the battery problem. We had to break down and buy some new ones. We drove to Miami Friday, it's the only place in Florida to get Rolls batteries. They are the best deep cycle batteries on the market. When we got back to the boat we saw that one appears to have a small leak. So now we need to drive back to Miami and exchange it.
He also finished the swimming platform!!! Here a quick picture of Warren attaching the ladder that is used to exit the water. As you can see, it's a beautiful day, 80 degrees and clear skies. Boy am I glad we are here and not in Fairbanks where it's only 36 degrees.
