Now will the battery fit in there too?

My console front door looks about the same size as yours, and the battery is an absolute nightmare to get in and out of there - now I've greased the terminals it's even worse

Bet you must be itching to get the thing on the water now

Hi

Very nice boat. looks great.

What brand and model is that VHF, it looks nice, is it completly waterproof. (sorry if this is a stupid question)

Mine isn't so looking for at new one, the shop who sold it to me said it would be fine on a open RIB

Rene

In the Uk we call it a Icom M601, a small difference, but probably significant unless you have a switched on dealer.

I have one on my boat, and can confirm it is waterproof, and has coped with all that nature has thrown at it for the last 6 months.

The display is easy to read and the menus are simple to follow through.

Mr ginger is quite correct. Fully waterproof. It's very new to the UK market, previously Icom's DSC offering was a two-unit solution. Icom are, IMHO, the best in terms of quality and support for marine VHF's.

Downside is that it's over 600 rrp.

I got a deal at the boatshow, hard to say the exact price since i had the GPS, transducer etc. etc. bundled together. It was from Nautequipe, 01299 251005, very helpful. I've used them since and they were equally helpful. Their list price is 570incl.

As a final note i beleive it's icom's first waterproof offering with a disconnectable speaker mike. Note the 'speaker' part, essential on a RIB.

Sadly due to serious work overload (it pays the bills ) top banana has still not got her hull wet!

Progress since my last post is, however, vast.

Starting sometime last week i finally finished installing the electronics and their various transducers / aeriels.

With the new 130AH battery and isolator installed i fired all up for a quick test:

Said transducers.

Paddlewheel on left is connected to the engine for it's low-speed waterspeed reading (smartcraft can switch to a more conventional pilot / pressure reading over, say, 20knts) as well as water temperature.

Right hand transducer is a standard 200KHz garmin.

Another view of completed dash.

Note twin waterproof power sockets on right - invaluable for handheld GPS, electric inflator for ringo's, cool box etc.

Also please note that my 'bits of poncey yellow plastic' are infact 'colour coded yellow perspex bevels'. Not sure if they look as good as i imagined, but i'm happy with them.
