12/16/18  Productive weekend thus far.  Trying something new to save time on my dual boat battery setup.  Just disconnected the positive terminals to install the trickle chargers.  Autopilot always drawing juice and a few other power vampires being the reason.
                New page to debut the 2019 White Lightning spoon special is coming along nicely.  Doing the layout today and posting a new video too.
