Electrics for ‘Minnow’ – Part 2

I started the second phase of installing ‘Minnow’s’ electrics by fitting a cigarette socket adaptor for my GPS units that are mounted on a rotating arm. This is the same device I had on ‘Sandpiper’. It enables me to quickly deploy the units. All I have to do to complete the installation is to wire in a single cigarette socket adaptor.

Fitting my Autohelm 800 will take a little more effort. I shall have to invent and make a quick release gadget for attaching the steering line to the end of the Autohelm’s rod. I shall also have to devise a mount for the Autohelm and do the associated wiring.
