Hylas Discussion / Re: Inverter/Charger Advice needed
« Last post by Moonlight on May 29, 2020, 03:32:35 PM »
After some discussions with a marine electrician at our marina where he said the biggest maintenance item during the summer was to replace charger/inverters and when they went down they often took all the power down with them.  I decided to keep the two functions separate.  We have a Promariner charger and a Promariner pure sine wave 2000 W inverter.  I figure that I only have to replace one  unit when it goes down.

Hylas Discussion / Bra for transom sound control?
« Last post by Nirvana on May 29, 2020, 12:13:32 PM »
Hi all.  At the rendezvous in Bristol RI one of the boats there deployed a net-type structure under the transom scoop to control the bell sounds inside during the rough water in the bay. 

Im in search of that product or similar solution to help me sleep at night when were in our slip (T-Dock actually) with our stern to the wind.

Thoughts?

Many thanks.

Thanks again Jack, appreciate the info!


Merrill, I'm in the process of that exact upgrade replacing the existing fixtures in the same locations as yours.  I'm sure it will make a huge difference.  I'm almost complete with replacing all of the ceiling puck lights with LED fixtures as well and very happy with the results!  Normally I order my fixtures and exterior lights from Marinebeam as well, but in the case of the puck lights, I have been using the 2.5" pucks from www.superbrightleds.com and been very pleased with the quality and performance, and equally important:  price.  They come in various ring finishes if you want to change away from chrome, as well as various brightness levels.  Very happy!


Best,

I changed the engine room lights on Ambition to LED and was absolutely delighted with the ones I put in from Marinebeam.com https://store.marinebeam.com/9w-engine-room-led-fixture-fx-er-9w/
One over the engine and one over the generator. An incredible amount of light exactly where you want it.

Dan.  "Mine" means the switch for "E/R LTS", "the other switch".  It's under the companionway bridgedeck on port side of console to starboard of chart table that covers the Yanmar engine.  It's on the AFT LTS dc circuit.

You guys are fantastic, thank you.  Every boat is slightly different, but Erikh's response led me to look for the E/R LTS switch which on my boat is exactly where Ambition indicated on Nepenthe.  Juice is flowing to the Engine Room circuit now and I can move forward with replacing those two lights with bright LED fixtures.

Once again, I greatly appreciate the contributions you all make to helping each other out.


Best,

On our 2002 46 the Engine Room lighting is tied to the Aft Cabin Lights ( the panel indicates AFT/E/R LTS) The light switch to turn them on is located beside the plug on the bulkhead behind the companionway stairs / under the cockpit.

Hey Dan, they are on the AFT circuit. The panel may read AFT E/R Lights. They are then controlled by a separate switch in the galley next to the refrigerator drain pump switch.

Jack, thanks for the quick reply although I'm not quite sure what you are referring to.  When you say "mine" what do you mean?  I'm trying to determine which electrical circuit the engine room lights would have been tied into on the H46 models.


Thanks!


Dan
