I would highly recommend not using Peter Kennedy Yacht Services for anything. Here's why: LINK
To give you a photographic reason:
This is a photo of the mounting plate for the swivel arm that Peter Kennedy mounted my GPS to. The screw holes are the ones he drilled. He only drilled and tapped two of the four holes the equipment is supposed to have, and one of them was in the area where the bushing that allows it to rotate is located, as seen by the pen circle drawn on the aluminum. Very poor quality work.
This is the $40 custom masthead lamp mounting bracket he sold me.
It isn't even wide enough to have the screws for the masthead light got through it. It didn't survive the trailering trip from Annapolis to New Bedford. He had three sheet metal screws holding it to the masthead truck, that were held in by silicone. The corners and edges of the aluminum aren't rounded or smoothed off in any way, and it looks like it was cut with a hacksaw by hand. You can clearly see the silicone in the bottom-most hole on the masthead truck, and the hack job he did on drilling the holes.

I bought my panel from Peter Kennedy Yacht Services - Marine Electrical Systems
and got a great price. Worth checking out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
