6 Volts right on the hull card – The way the gods wanted it.
Back earlier this week, while we had some fun with Condensers and points, fellow Woody Boater Bob Huff sent us this email with what is the eternal question. It’s deep and I clearly have a point of view, and since we are boating in an artistic way, there really is no right answer, but it sure makes a fun debate. And Bobs argument of what changes could be made, is a great one. As you all know, the zen of it all is part of it all for me. But there is room for all of us. Here is Bob’s statement.
“How do you rationalize putting up with all that you have with the likelihood that it will occur again when an electronic ignition would eliminate the pain and uncertainty and you would be the ONLY person who would know.
Ya gotta wind it! And I like it that way. By the way. No 6 volt
Originality is important to me too but there are limits. Bet you don’t have canvass and boards on the bottom.
I know you still have 6V. All of this could also have been converted, including the gen, without anyone noticing. We’re not talking a V8 swap here.
Make it 12 volt?
Tool kits, badges, flotation, steps, keys, etc are great fun. Suggest you stick with that level of originality and adopt changes that will make your boating experience better.
Obsolete? I have used it three times already. LOVE IT!
Bet there would be more than three stories telling your readers how to make some of these changes that improve boating without having any practical impact on originality. Maybe start with a survey of what these things should be. It might really benefit your readers”.
