Finally sat down long enough to download from the camera, then upload to the Internets tubes: some photos are at https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/sred...yKA&feat=email

I can't find a suitable editor to downsize & post on the forum, so just click & go!

Update on the legend of the exploding battery (driving the TerraYacht to Casini, one of the house batteries exploded with BIG bang on 101 just before the River Road exit, blew off half the top of the battery):
I checked voltage on the system, even tried different inputs, not expecting any delta: plugged in, generator, engine alternator, everything showed about 13.5v.

I went out a few minutes ago, no charging going on, and one of the 3 exposed cells has cloudy looking electrolyte and is STILL bubbling--with no external charge.
No open flames, since the bubbling "may" be hydrogen...my repair guys are busy until friday for replacement.
with all the H2, this may be a breakthrough to provide a source for a fuel cell, we could market this as a hybrid battery, jump on the alternative market.

This sounds way way too similar to Buttercup's issue at the Norcal Jackson Rancheria last October.

Now we know WHO you are! Saw Mary a lot when we were in AZ. Guess who she's trying to convince to buy a new Airstream? All the best, Mike & Judy

appears to be a Nike Hercules on the move. If you have one of those wouldn't you have a aircraft to move that thing around? I'm a covert operations kind of guy, unless of course one were setting up a decoy operation, or a 3rd world kind of operation. anyway that's old technology. but thanks for thinking of me Cliff.
Happiness is a nuclear warhead, lol, not quite as easy to conceal as a M137 SAS Stealth Master but effective.
