Hobe sound. 1/29-1/30/11

Hobe sound was the typical backwoods mangrove creek adventure.
Jupiter Island Police are well represented as well as Florida Wildlife.  There is an anchorage about 2/3 the way down the sound with nothing but wild life on the west bank and population on the east.

The fist morning turned out to be so calm I decided this was the place to install electricity!  I have been storing two 135 watt solar panels on board until I found a good place to put them on the bimini.  I didn't want to spend any more time in Indiantown to get the job done.
135 watts
270 watts for the pair
The balance of the energy generation will come from an Air-Breeze wind generator.
As they say "One thing leads to another", here is what the original butchered wiring looks like.  Notice the black wire coming from the positive side of the battery selector and then through a fuse to a red wire!

This turns out to be the hang out for some of the locals power boats on Sundays.
