  7. Raz'r The state of Hawaii has a quarantine order in effect. There are ways around it one is by getting a vegetative covid test prior to traveling to Hawaii. I will assume your coworker followed the procedure on the safe travels Hawaii web site. Oahu is the least restrictive you do not have to get tested after arrival if you tested negative prior to arrival. You also do not need to be tested traveling from one of the other islands to Oahu.
  8. There are a lot of questions that need to be answered, her are a few to start with. I am sure the consultant will address them. 1. Under the current Hawaii safe travel policy no boat will be able to abide by the less than 72 hour prior to departure covid testing requirements to bypass the 10 day quarantine 2. Currently with out a negative there is a mandatory 10 day quarantine, it is unknown if the time at sea will count. Can they quarantine on the boat? Quarantine is at your own expense. 3. Social gatherings are limited to 10 or less. 4. Is an large in person awards ceremony even
  9. Is it the Cool Blue system? Is LED on the circuit board flashing when power is applied? I am not on my boat do do not have the codes for the LED flashing. Have you jumpered out the thermostat? Have you sent an email to Tecnautics. Rich normally replies quickly. You may want to switch the circuit board between the units.
  10. Looking to purchase Atomic tape. I bought some a few years back at one of the boat shows and was happy with its performance. I google it and get nothing.

  13. Understand Washington State is reconsidering it ban on bottom paint containing copper. Expect decision by the end of the year. I am looking at doing a complete bottom job this fall and have plans to sail to the PNW in 2021 and would like to know what bottom paint most likely will be acceptable. What about the coppercoat system. Some things I have read say Washington will do Like San Diego and have a limit of how much metals can leech out of the paint. Don't want to do a bottom job prior to going to the PNW only to have to remove it in a couple of years.
