Burning Daylight

I made it back in town around 5 pm from a work trip and went straight to the boat.  Since it was already late in the evening, I had only a few hours of daylight to work with.  I went to work on getting the rear AC unit buttoned up.  I have to say I am pretty please I was able to wire this up myself.  The actual connecting of the AC wasn't an issue, but getting the power run into the AC unit was ridiculous.  Whomever installed the AC unit didn't line up the access hole in the support beam with the hole on the AC unit.  Therefore I had to fish the line through a hole the size of a quarter and then immediately bend it 4 inches and fish it through an even small hole in the AC unit.  This would have been easy if I could have reached the holes by hand.  Since I didn't want to remove the entire AC unit to take the ceiling down, I taped the power line to the end of the wire rods and fished it across and into the hole.  I went ahead and terminated the ends and put the AC cover back on.  I went ahead and moved onto finishing the starboard outlet terminations.  I want to get the boat somewhat back together.  I have decided that I will purchase the cabinets on Thursday.  At that time I will also purchase the insulation for the rear of the boat.

Here is how I have the rest of my week scheduled out.

Finish terminating starboard outlets (Front, Rear, and Upper outlets)

    -This requires cutting an access hole in the rear of the closet.
