"Lunasea" New RC585

Finally, after months and months my new boat "Lunasea" has arrived - well at Southampton Boat Show - if not quite yet onto the water.

Still a couple of final items to be fitted- radar reflector, drybox cage and lifebuoy/danlight to be added to the A-frame.

Now can't wait to pick her up after the show and run her in

Hi Wilk,
She's 5.9m. The screws on the rear of the console hold the electrical panel with the circuitary, isolator and fuse panel, from memory. Will be fitting a cargo net to aft console face to hold the vital bits and pieces, - notebook, chinograph spare killcord etc...

Have fitted a pair of digital multi-gauges insstead of analogue dials, so looking forward to playing with the data from them.

The Redbay 9.5 Stormforce cabin rib looked really good.

Hi breezeblock,
Thanks.
They are the new Suzuki multi-gauges - and a late - in fact the only change to the original spec as they've only recently come to market.

A bit more expensive than the three standard analogue gauges (trim tacho and fuel gauge) - the last of which is pretty useless due to shape of tank-, but will give digital revs, speed, fuel burn info etc...

I could have routed some of the engine data to plotter, but then I'd lose much of the screen for data - I prefer to use the full screen on the plotter for navigation.
