  1. At the moment I am sitting under one....and it has cooled the house down by 6 degrees since we got home 2 hrs ago. However..... we are in Alice Springs ( home BOI Nz). It works so well here due to the dry climate having little moisture but when the humidity rises the ability to cool dramatically decreases. They call them swampies  here. The dry air is cooled by the water. With the humidity being high by the coast, it will be a lot less effective...so Darwin has very few. Hope this helps. Michael

  2. Hi everyone, I am not a regular poster but would like to add to this. I am currently in Fiji and coming home in 4 wks. Just replaced my batteries but thought I might have had a charging problem related to my batteries demise. I read this article as thought that the solution may be a new regulator and liked what this article said. Had a crew member returning briefly to NZ so contacted Graeme about possible replacement. He worked with me sugesting various things even including buying a replacement alternator in the USA rather than get him to supply it. As it turned out Don at Musket Cove was kind enough to double check things and it is likely to be a monitor calibrating problem rather than charging. Long story but will relate it if there is any interest. As it stands there is possibly no problem. Take home message for me is that full fielding an alternator will not necessarily result in full output of the alternator if the battery is three quarters full. Anyway the point of my story is that Graeme gave me the typical Kiwi service by email. Keen to help a person in a spot, not always looking at the bottom line, and was very knowledgeable. Will be buying a reg and alternator spare from him for the next Morning Cloud trip.
