sunny and calm.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife
The new alternator is bolted to the engine, but it has a different pin out than what is needed for the Battery Management System. The mechanic has a call into the peninsula to see if they can explain how to bypass the internal regulator to allow the BMS to do its thing.
Emptied a sail locker to get at some wiring just in time to put it all back and go into the engine compartment again. It’s like playing musical chairs trying refit the boat with the kit still onboard.
