Exactly how did those two webpages I link to not answer your question about why you shouldn't use Peter Kennedy. Either you didn't bother reading them... or you didn't understand the fact that his company does not stand behind their work and does very shoddy work.
This is what Peter Kennedy considers a $40 masthead light bracket and the proper way to mount it:
If you look, the aluminum piece has rough burrs and badly cut edges as well as isn't wide enough for the mast head light mounting screws to be properly mounted through it. Two of the three screws are basically being held in place by silicone sealant. The screws that held the bracket to the masthead were held in place by silicone sealant alone, and didn't survive the trailer trip from Annapolis to Boston. I seriously doubt it would have survived more than a few hours sailing in the SCA conditions I am often out in. The holes were not tapped for the machines screws he used either.
This is what he considers the proper way to mount a GPS onto a swiveling plate:
The circle indicates the area covered by the Delrin bearing on the rotating part of the swing arm mounting platform. If you look, you'll see that one of the mounting screws was drilled and screwed into the Delrin bearing surface, damaging it badly.
If you don't consider work like this a reason not to use Peter Kennedy and his company, I wish you good luck. Almost every system he touched has had some serious problems or was not connected properly. Mind you, this is the quality of the work after Peter Kennedy had assured me that he was taking a personal interest in getting the work done properly.
I'd also compare the quality of work Peter Kennedy did with work done by a friend of mine, who did some stainless steel work for me, making the new stainless steel block mounting plates for my halyards led aft project.... The pieces were beautifully made with smooth edges and countersunk/chamfered fastener holes. Yeah, there's a big difference between someone who cares to do a job properly and Peter Kennedy and his crap work.
