Cabin Battery Housing

Finally a picture of my Cabin house battery arrangement. The Batt Box is Secured by BUNGIE Cords hooked on metal door handles attached to the seat. I use the area BEHING the battery for storage of Spinaker pole, sails, grill, etc.

I need a short VHF antenna for my mast and can't seem to find anything under 3'. Anybody know of a good one I can find online somewhere?

It seems that 3 ft is the normal mast mounted height ?? I read that you should be looking for a 3db gain as well for a sailboat. This allows for the rocking motion of the mast to least affect the receive / transmit ability of the antenna.

Thanks for the help on the antenna, Thats the next major project. But for now, does anybody have any experience with a Thru hull depth sounder?

Main question is, Can it work through the hull? Is the fiberglass to thick? or is the hull cored or anything that would prevent it from working. Trying to avoid a transom mount.

Paul the hull I believe varies in thickness so it depends on where you want to mount it. I removed one on mine that made a 3" hole thru the hull, the glass where it went thru was about 1 inch thick! (about a foot & 1/2 fwd of the shoal keel & post side about 6 inches from center. The hull is solid glass, they don't make them like that anymore, too expensive to hand lay so much glass.

You'll have to post some pictures for us. What is the hull # ? Where are you painting above or below the water line?

Windyway, I would like some info on your "fix" my cable is also broken, the boat is in the water and I am not familiar with the mechanism. This is a new to me boat and I have not even had it out of the water. I know the cable is broken and from removing the inspection board in the floor it appears the cable, the tubing and everything is pretty rough.
