We did it!!
Stella Blue now has a properly functioning, ice-cold, kick ass refrigeration system. Logan and I installed the Adler Barber CU-100 compressor unit and the VD-150 evaporator plate unit yesterday from about 1pm to 10pm. There was sweat, there was grunting, there was even a little blood. But we were successful and feel so accomplished this morning. This may change the way we provision for the Bahamas!
The weather here on the west coast of Florida is wacky today with t-storms and sustained winds of 20-25 with gusts up to 30 mph, this is enough to warrant a Lake Wind Advisory. We will be spending this Sunday working on miscellaneous boat projects and resting up for our passage tomorrow.
