From Todd Weiller:

The latest on Electrical Safety in Marinas this month from the International Association of Electrical Inspectors.  A good read to know what’s going on around a marina whether at SSYC or elsewhere.

http://iaeimagazine.org/magazine/2014/07/11/safety-in-marinas/

As little as one milliampere can cause a tingle. At 30 milliamps an individual “freezes” and can’t let go.  At 1,000 milliamperes or 1 amp from a 30 AMP standard boat cord set stops the rhythmic pumping action of the heart causing muscular contraction and nerve damage. Death is likely.  On that scale, a 30 Amp cord carries enough juice to kill 30 people.  That should earn it some respect.

 

If we are going to be safe and provide a HEPA vac, why not electrical safe then? A simple device you can carry in your pocket is a polarity tester. Plug it into any outlet and it will tell you if you reversed the neutrals and are pumping live current into the water or elsewhere. $5.25 with free shipping on Amazon. It could save a life. http://www.amazon.com/Electrical-Receptacle-Outlet-Ground-Tester/dp/B0012DHVQ0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1405466462&sr=8-5&keywords=polarity+checker

(If and unusual amount of alewives are dying around your boat at the dock, you might have this problem!)

Sailing and Racing

SailboatsIf you are interested in sailing, and more specifically racing, there are ample opportunities to join one of our racing fleets, or to crew on one of the boats in those fleets.  The women's fleet races on Mondays, small boats race on Tuesdays.  Big boats race on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  And the double handed fleet races on Fridays.

You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here.  And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
