Rusty Electrical Equipment

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Rockport is packed with folks for the festival and fun of this Fourth of July  holidays. The Teams swung by the harbor to see if it was time to do a little fishing before it got too crowded. There was not a place along the breakwater for us to fish. We guess that was alright since the waves were running to high for decent fishing anyway.

The OFM took us back to the Castle and we stayed in the AC most of the day looking for something for tonight’s blog entry.

The only thing he found is a couple of corrosion pictures of some equipment on a power pole down by the big tent.This first picture is of the galvanized steel equipment for throwing a switch mounted way up high on the pole.


Grounding that equipment to the pole’s ground wire was this mesh wire and a few bolts. Notice the nice green patina that the salt water has given the conductor.


As you can tell this has been a rather slow day for trying to have tooooo much fun.

  3. The busy long weekends are a good time to stay put for a couple of days. That salt water does take it's toll.
