    Brian Shorter,

    Hello Brian,

    I’ve just been made aware of your Feb 10th seminar by Brian Short (!) at Bluewater Cruising. He was aware of my potential interest because primarily of my recent move from 50 years in fibreglass sail to aluminum hulled planning power (Eaglecraft).

    My particular interests include: the particular galvanic issues around aluminum hulls, modern so-called “fail-safe” galvanic isolators and their testing, induced galvanic suppressors (very hesitant), and issues related to a solar installation I’m currently undertaking, such as fully understanding proper setup characteristics of the (Midnite Solar Kid) MPPT controller.

    Am planning to drive down from Nanaimo to attend (the announcement in “Currents” did not state time, but your helpful RVYC operator tells me it is 1930 hrs ); unless it is felt that coverage of my interests above would be very limited? Please feel free to share with Roger Palmer, and either feel free to phone my cell 250-714-8911.

    Your operator assures me space not an issue if I were to arrive at least 1/2 hr ahead?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dr. David Bowman
