Foul weather

Foul weatherThe recent foul weather gives me the opportunity to catch up on internal tasks.

At last, I've made a start on building on all Andy's good work on the electrics.

Amongst so much other preparation, the key thing Andy had done on his last visit was to setup a proper mains electric distribution board.

Now, for the first time ever, I have mains sockets properly wired into where they are most needed inside Lady Jane. The picture shows a socket being installed in the wheelhouse.

The actual connections are pretty straightforward, following Andy's example. The hard part is getting the mains cables neatly through the various nooks and crannies set aside for that very purpose.

Obviously this is all very much a work in progress, until it can be checked over by someone properly qualified.

Those sockets make the place so much safer for everyone, certainly when compared to the extension leads I had snaking about the place.
