Re: Drinks

If it’s Wednesday 12th near a railway station in Edinburgh I’ll come along. That will probably result it being in Aberdeen on the Monday ;-)

Watch your language, chentlemen. Stornoway’s sister was part of my RMR crew this year!

Sweeps/long oars

We’ve decided that 2019 is race year. With 3 teenagers to keep amused (all of whom are bored of Dad’s chat) we might as well rack it up a level. I’ve bought a new spinnaker pole, having bent the old one in the Round Mull Race this year. We’re doing WHYW... maybe in white sails, but hopefully with th...

Re: Bit of a Tester

Do you have Argyll Shipwrecks on board for any particular reason, Claysie? Trying to find a virgin spot to scuttle the guid shup and divert operational fundage to the kitchen in Claymore Towers?

Re: Well my Buckos

Just thinking about it now. I wonder if we shall end up being winter electrical *uck-up neighbours again? I have interior decorating to do this winter! Nothing mechanical or electrical other than nav light replacement and a new spinnaker pole mast fitting as we have bought a new pole after bending o...

Re: Edinburgh or Greenock to Ardfern?

Alastair - I'm in Crieff (as I think you know, given that I sold you a dodgy outboard 2 years ago!). I'm going to Ardfern on Wednesday if that's of any use? Rgds, Hugh.

Re: Next week

Claysie

I may be there on Wednesday to service the engine (mine, not your gleaming new one). I'll look out for you. Please do update me on your re-wiring successes...

Re: Integrating old and new electronics

Claysie

You'll see now that I previously shared your current pain. I hope the wiring mystery is becoming clearer and the spaghetti is becoming more like linguini. Or something. Are you still sitting in the skipper's seat, dram in hand, while your manservant re-routes your amps?

Re: Integrating old and new electronics

..... and now the big question - how much and how long to do it? Ah yes - there is that to consider! The kit was about £3,000. I had to get the yard to fit the radome but I did everything else myself in about 9 days (including making the chart table pieces and varnishing them). Most of the time was...

Integrating old and new electronics

I thought it might be worth writing up my recent project in case anyone else is interested in how to integrate old and new electronic kit. The boat was fitted with the following when I bought her: Raymarine E120 MFD with GPS mushroom Raymarine 24" 4kW radome Raymarine ST60 wind/depth/log array ...
