Harking back to post #9.......

I had my prop and skeg repaired by my local Yamaha dealer before I put her to bed for the winter but with Spring ( momentarily ) in the air yesterday , I made a start on replacing the original Garmin Fishfinder 160 ( an original fitting so approx 15 years old ) .

I was horrified at the state of the transponder cable which had morphed into a set of mini-intestines for about 3 metres ( but delighted that even so , I managed to use it a s a pull-through for the new transponder cable ) . Just the console end to sort out now when Spring returns.......

Well that was good timing to sort that out, rather than mid summer or even worse it failed. 😳

I'm on with sitting a proper fixing location for O2 and fitting a auxiliary engine bracket. 😐 taking my time putting the first holes in tho ! 😂
