solar panels putting out juice!

Finally got the solar panels wired through the charge controller to the batteries. It was great to watch the voltage go up, even with the refrigerator on. If we had known 6 years ago that we would eventually need solar panels, we might have chosen a different way to mount our radar, as it partly blocks one panel depending on sun angle.
This has been a nice week to be in Astoria doing boat projects. If the weather forecast holds, we'll be off for Newport tomorrow around noon.
