Re: Switching to LED's on mast

I wouldn't use wire smaller than 14 gauge for mast wiring whether Led or not. Maybe even larger (12 gauge) depending on length of run. Voltage drop is one issue and the durability of the wire is...

Re: Threadbare Gelcoat

The Gougeons (West Epoxy) state that gelcoat can be applied over epoxy but it is commonly thought that it will not adhere properly. I have never tried it myself. I wouldn't count on it working.

Re: Cal 36 VS Pearson 36

According to SailboatData the Pearson I showed was last built in 1976. The 365 is a very different boat I agree.

Re: 210 hertz transducer with raymarine st60?

I have a Raymarine ST-40 depth sounder and epoxied the standard transducer inside the hull and it works fine. I may have lost the extreme depth measurements a bit but I'm not too worried about that.

Re: Engine start shuts off chartplotter

Depends. If the current gel batteries are older and have lost capacity over time the problem may persist. If that is true it will only get worse. I would install a starting battery or you may have to...
