Wavehumper - the only switch is behind this hatch and it's a bullet connector!

Unless you count 2 push and hold switches for the bilge pump and the bow tank dump!

Lets go out in a force 6 to 7 then Jon!

Strange question, how fast do you think the banana would go with 650hp if it weighed 3-1/4 tons? you need to study the levi formula so you don't get so confused over hp/weight! I often see you chaps going on about "not bad with only 200 horse" but where's your double bed, seating area, central heating, mains supply, cockpit for six, and 1-1/4 tons of engines? I'll dig it up and post it for you, and all will become clear, here endeth the lesson. LOL

Thanks for the tips

Thanks for all the advice Guys. My Gps is mounted on brackets on top of the console same as Powerboats set ups with similiar problems. I will have a look at the power set ups and see if i can incorporate any of the advice given to sort this problem out. I will be out this weekend so will let you know how i get on!
