Cheers, Squid

A few pictures from today, finally got the console wiring finished. The only space left for the RS12 is on the dash below the steering wheel, we have some worries wether this is going to work but there are plans afoot to mount it on a small stainless pole attached to the console, any other ideas?

Yes - if you haven't got one yet, get Nugent to make you a small lexan screen to keep the spray and waves off the Raymarine. They're not the most waterproof when surface mounted like that. I used to put self amalgamating around them too...

I've ordered a 500x500 sheet of tinted Perspex for the very job. I never realised Nugent did them.

Originally I was going to make a pod for the Raymarine but in the end decided to just bolt it.

Nugent: How to make your own windscreen

I had a Raymarine A65 - I was shocked at how poor the proofing was at the blank caps. I covered them over and sealed the other cable connections - they were fine when I sold up. I've been told that the IP ratings for a lot of this kit are based on flush mounting - dunno if that's true.

Oh, the card reader flap was always loose on mine - maybe worth a look

Blocked off the hull last night. The plan was to block it in a way that should we wish to put it back to flooding then it could be done in seconds.

I bought a standard 4" waterproof inspection hatch as near to the hole size as possible, unfortunately I couldn't find one that fitted perfect. A spacer was needed. I made one and covered it in flow coat, the hatch was bonded into the ring then the whole lot was fixed to the transom with adhesive and stainless self tappers.

It works a treat.

Sorry mate but in my view that hatch is not suitable or strong enough for below the waterline work.
They are usually used as inspection/access hatches in deck fittings.

Good to see another Searider rising from the ashes!
