Generators back online

There is so much to do in the engine room.

Generators back onlineAs you can see, just the cleaning in there is going to take forever.

The picture shows Robin deep in the bowels of Lady Jane's engine room, surrounded by all sorts of interesting engineering stuff.

In fact he is working on installing the 24 volt generator - the blue lump you can see in amongst all the red paint there by his knee.

This marks the completion of two key tasks in the engine room - reconnecting both the 110 and 24 volt generators.

These generators were originally taken offline as part of the bulkhead project, way back in July 2005.

It is so good seeing things finally coming together, ready for sailing at the end of the month.


  1. Unusual and interesting blog! It sounds rather romantic, living on an old fishing boat..

  2. Hi Lissi

    Thanks for the comment.

    I really love the live aboard lifestyle.

    I feel you are so much more in tune with your surroundings.

    The travel opportunities are amazing (got to get her finished first).

    The whole idea is to travel and see the world in her.

    Who knows, I'm thinking Lady Jane will look good, anchored there in the shadow of Table Mountain.
