Raymarine NMEA0183 cable

I need a Raymarine NMEA0183 cable (#R08004) for our Raymarine C120 plotter.

The cable has been discontinued.

Any ideas where I can get one ?

Re: marine speakers

I have had very good luck with Dayton Audio equipment. This is the house brand for Parts-express and they have great service.

Really depends on how loud you want to go! I would avoid wake board speakers as they would likely be ugly, but likely designed to be loud.

I have measured no affect on the compass about 2.5' above. They sound amazingly good for a set of cheapies. My only complaint is that the grills have started to rust after 1 year. But for $20 they have exceeded my expectations.

I never understood the fear of cutting, these speakers must be pretty obtrusive in a cockpit. To each his own I guess and in the words of a famous movie yacht owner "..but it looks good on you"

Just joking around of course

LOL.

Actually they are very much out of the way. They are installed inside of the guard so they do not interfere at all. I have multiple problems with cutting holes for speakers.

- non standard sizes makes exact replacement difficult
- non structural component. Water will break through if pooped
- I have no space in my cockpit to cut holes that is not either protruding into a cabin, cooler, propane locker, etc. The inside of my coaming is completely covered with back cushions.

I also do not like Bimini mounted speakers because of head strikes and exposed wiring.

My solution works best for me and my boat.
