Getting Close, another couple of weekends should do it, Just got to fix the Echomax, mount the fluxgate sensor and a few small jobs. The panel is now fitted in place and most of the wiring is complete, just the bilge blower and the Anchor light on top of the Echomax to connect.

compass positioning

Looks very nice. However - is there an enclosed speaker in the Radio - if so you may need to check on whetehr it's affecting your compass - and also - if you intend to fit a phone holder somewhere - DO check its positioning by making and receiving calls (preferably in a few different physical locations) and checking if this has any effect on the compass.

Despite what many 'hardeneded' travellers seem to believe, (i) mobile phones DO generate spurious radiation & magnetism and (ii) Compasses are very sensitive - It's better to check.

Very nice job on the wiring. Have you borrowed a steering wheel off a maxi-90 for driving your rib

Cheers

Mark

If you look to the left of the console you will see a ST60 fluxgate compass, the sensor head is fitted at the front of the console at deck level well away from any fields. but thanks for the tips.
