first question--Heart interface panel

We have "Heart Interface" panel for the charger. Photo attached.
We finally pushed enough buttons to get it working, but could someone give info on settings for optimum performance?

"stupid" newbie questions--threads

I could really use a place to ask kind of random "newbie" questions that most people would find mundane, but that are really needed the first few weeks on a new boat.
could we get a new thread?

Re: Source for outboard anodes?

yep. Did that. Found them for $22.50 plus shipping....that seems ridiculously high.

Source for outboard anodes?

Looking for a less costly source for the anodes for the 9.9 outboards (can only find on Yamaha website).

Cutting in Inspection ports in 1990 34'

We need to empty water out of the forward and rear compartments. We will need to cut in inspection ports to do this. I am having to give instructions to the yard in Grenada to do this.
