Re: Separating solar from antenna cables?

It's actually not radio antenna cable- GPS lines (one is seatalk ng, the other is some smaller diameter coax cable, which I think is rg-8). The juice going through the solar cables is small enough...

Re: Separating solar from antenna cables?

I took Maine Sails advice and got the Genasun gv-10 controller. The cabling in question is mostly the Seatalk-ng for one gps antenna, and I believe a smaller diameter (maybe rg-8?) for the passive...

Separating solar from antenna cables?

My search for this came up empty, although I'm sure it's been discussed. My solar panel is only 100w/5.7a (optimum current), and it would be really convenient to bundle the solar cables with the ais...

Re: Wiring Raymarine EV-100 tiller drive to the ACU-100

Great-- can't wait to start using it... I'm sure figuring out how to set it to an apparent wind angle will be an adventure, too!

Re: Wiring Raymarine EV-100 tiller drive to the ACU-100

Holy, cow- thanks, Alex! That did not come in the box and when I searched through the available installation/user manuals for the EV-100, nothing like that came up. How did you locate that in your...

Wiring Raymarine EV-100 tiller drive to the ACU-100

I've tried calling tech support, leaving messages, and also starting a thread on the forum on the RM web-site, but getting no help with this issue. I cannot find anywhere in the instructions to show...

Re: Gas fuel tank recommendation

Ya know, the more I think about this (and especially since I have to mix this 50:1 with oil), I'm hesitant about installing this and poking holes in the boat for something this weird.. Maybe trying...

Re: Gas fuel tank recommendation

Not those- that's an above deck tank. This needs to be below deck and have access through the deck for filling and venting. I'm hoping someone has experience with a good simple setup that installs...

Gas fuel tank recommendation

Hi, all- I need a recommendation on a simple fixed fuel tank for an Olson 30. I'm doing Bermuda 1-2 next year, and although the NOR's don't specify storage of fuel, it needs to be sufficient to run...

Re: Installing Lewmar Ocean Hatch

Thanks, J- I might just glass in a strip of wood (well-sealed, so it won't rot) to use as a bumper of sorts.. I recall a slot in the catch for the handles below deck, that I remember (now I remember)...

Re: Installing Lewmar Ocean Hatch

Thank you for the link, Ron- I called them and the guy who does the tig welding for these aluminum frames told me they do around 200 Lewmar hatches/month, so they are the obvious choice... but they...

Installing Lewmar Ocean Hatch

Few questions for those in the know- I need to replace the forward hatch, and I think I've read somewhere that the proper orientation is with the hinges forward (so it opens facing aft). I suspect...

Hey, never mind- found the RF connection page (thank you, SV Auspicious!) and they had everything in stock and very affordable ($37 for the tool, and $2 for each connector). Thanks again, you guys-...

Re: VHF antenna and cable recommendation

Offshore use = coastal stuff (mainly), but also to Bermuda. That cable is already gone- I dropped it yesterday, so it will be replaced with something better.

Is that lowloss cable tinned? I...

Could anyone make a good rec on these two items for an Olson 30 (~35' mast) for offshore use? I've been reading tons, and am more confused than ever. I took a good look at what's up there now this...

Re: MISEA masthead tricolor goof?

That's about the same position of mine, but the light will be moved a bit to port on a plate I'm installing today, so it should work out.
