I finished mounting and wiring the cigarette lighter socket for the GPS units etc.
I was very pleased with the result.
All I need to do is varnish the mount.
My next job will be fitting and wiring the Autohelm 800. The tricky part will be linking it to the steering line. When I had ‘Faith’, I linked the end of Autohelm’s rod to the steering line with two pieces of cord. They were attached with rolling hitches, one forward, and the other aft. As far as I remember, the Autohelm was mounted fore and aft on the port side with the rod towards the bow.
That worked OK, but I would like a quicker method of linking and unlinking the Autohelm. The ability to release the linkage quickly is crucial: for example, if there is a risk of collision with a nearby object.
