Re: Am I the only one so stupid?

After getting bored to set alarms for refill we placed a magnet into the rod and two reed switches in the scale, connected to our board controller.
By that we get an alarm at refill close to overflow and an alarm when closing low level.

We are also members of this club. We now set a timer when
filling the water tank to remind us to check the progress. It is amazing how
many times the timer goes off and we both suddenly sit up because we forgot the
water is running.

Our 54 has a major design flaw. Or it’s not protected against stupidity, take
Anyway I managed for the third time now to overflow the fresh water tank while
refilling. The problem is that the water does not simply overflows through the
filler cap. Instead it gushes out of the level meter pipe next to the
companionway right into the main saloon bilge that has no drain. Oops.
Anyone else has the same problem?
