Happy to say that the new water filter is working well. However, since I had to take a few shortcuts and make a few adjustments, we have a tiny little leak where I had to couple a too-big hose to a too-small fitting. It's not even enough of a leak to drip. You only know it's leaking if you brush up against the fitting and get a drop of water on your hand. It is, however, enough to cause us to suck a little air when we pump water. Not much, but a little. I'll fix it when I have the right parts.
Also happy to report that the solar array is working great. We haven't run the Honda generator since we left the marina almost 3 weeks ago and, since then we've made water and used the sewing machine and hot knife as well as all the regular stuff (refrigeration, lights, charge the computers, SSB radio, etc. If we had one more solar panel we'd really be fat and happy. Also would like to get a KISS wind generator.
Look for an update on out YOTREPS position tomorrow night.
