How to? Wiring from mast to cabin
Possibly wrong Forum, sorry if it is.
I have purchased a used Vancouver 28. All wiring from the mast including radar is fed through a single waterproof grommet into the saloon behind the headlining. Great set up for waterproofing but very hard to unstep the mast. The owners would not allow the mast to be unstepped for the survey due to the fact that an electrician was needed to decouple everything and the possibility of damage to the headlining. Canals? Foreign ports? Cost?
For me this is unacceptable as I lower my mast at the end of each season and through canals etc.
So what might be an alternative? I can fit deck mountings (I have always had this on my previous boats) but I have been advised that this is not an option for the radar. Have any readers set up a distribution box of any kind within the headlining or anything similar? Any advice as I am a little at a loss?
TX in advance
