Getting a late start

| No Comments


It's the first week in June and I don't think we've had temperatures above 70f. In fact, last weekend there was a frost warning in Duluth. I guess we've been fortunate to not have time to go sailing. I have had time, however, to get a lot of work done wrapping up all the wiring I still needed to do.

So far this spring I've been able to:

  • Install Garmin 19x GPS antenna (NMEA 0183)
  • Installed NMEA 0183 for my 2nd GMI 10 instrument display
  • Install ports to make the cockpit speaker connections better
  • Wired up an additional cockpit light
  • Wired up lights including
    • Masthead tricolor (which had never been wired so that was exciting)
    • Bow navigation lights
    • Steaming light
    • Anchor light
  • Installed iCom AIS receiver981610_4994344495768_1519463102_o.jpg

There's still a handful of items I need to wrap up:

  • Wire up additional 12v outlet
  • Wire task light in galley and over nav station
  • Clean up all wiring
  • Install Garmin 547 Chartplotter

Not to mention:

  • Finish and install dodger
  • Finish interior cushions
  • Make cockpit cushions
  • Make lifeline cushions
  • Make mast boot
  • Install winch covers
  • Make helm cover
  • Finish varnishing and install cockpit table.

And of course, the Wish List:

  • Radar
  • Autopilot

Always stuff to do on a boat!
