Thanks!

I would be more concerned if the drive was hydraulic or mechanical. Hydraulic should do fine cruising under sail in neutral. I think the newer Yanmar smaller HP (20 or so) use hydraulic...

Inverted V

I was thinking of using an inverted V antenna using a wire cored halyard. Over the top of the mast either abeam or length wise.

I want to install some of my ham gear on my boat as well. There a...

Dsc

Whatever the problem is, you should replace the radio with a DSC compatible VHF radio and interface it with your GPS receiver. Then verify the new radio setup for proper operation.

Bonding

Paint it, and bond it to the common bond ground. It's still going to get covered with marine growth anyway but at least you will have slowed the barnacles down a little.
