Have Fluke will travel
I haven't been to the boat for a week and a half. Wasn't really that interested in going when the boat was hauled out at the yard. But lots of progress while I was away.
Going back today for three full days. We are getting close to the boat being turned over to us.
While I was at Trawlerfest this year, I dropped into the diesel maintenance session a couple of times while our sessions were on break. During one they were showing a multi-meter with an integrated clamp and saying that was the way to go. Dang, those things are expensive! Was mentioning this to one of the Yacht Systems guys and he said "oh, just get a separate one for that." Also, he highly recommended Fluke.
So the Fluke integrated unit is $400+ while this kit was like $267 on Amazon. Score!
Should be lots of material for upcoming blog posts over the next couple of days.

Thanks for continuing with your blog on Mahalo. It has been fun to follow the build process, the outfitting process and hopefully your adventures in the wild blue yonder as you go exploring. It is nice to hear someone have positive experiences with their projects as so many stories today only focus on the negatives. Your Mahalo is a beautiful boar, love the reverse rake windows.

Great tip on the Fluke 323. I need one, too! What does the NIST Certificate get you for the extra $100?

Critical piece of equipment for troubleshooting electrical gremlins! Make sure the clamp meter measures both AC and DC amperage for boat use.
