|...There it is, our NEW B&G Triton2 Display...|
|Radeen checks out the pool at Turtle Reef Club|
|This is our galley counter top with all the old gear|
|Radeen keeps us focused and on task |
and with a positive attitude!
Thank you for following along, we are happy to share the dream and the adventure...
|That is the new B and G gear in boxes loaded on the nav desk.|
|Here we go, let's cut in a Triton2 display head|
|The owner's manual on how to use this gear|
|Our beach at the condo, Turtle Reef Club|
|Radeen walking around the pool, it is 80 degrees, warm and windy on Nov 1.|
|Look how easy NMEA 2000 connections are to use.|
These tees connect individual devices to the backbone.
|The tee on the left is a 12 volt power feed.|
The other tees will go to the nav desk Triton2 and the AIS radio.
|This is the new NAC-3 Autopilot Computer|
It will learn wave patterns and steer to wind angles
and steer to navigation points.
It is guided by GPS, a Rudder Reference and a Digital 9 axis Compass.
B&G makes the BEST autopilots!
|What a FUN lunch! We finally met Carol and Dick, owners of IP44 GUSTO.|
They have lived aboard for 20 years and sail to the Bahamas every year.
|Here we go, let's cut this display into the panel at the nav desk.|
|I taped plastic over all electronics inside and outside to protect them from sawdust.|
|Drill the corners with a 1/2" bit.|
|Cut out the opening with a Dremel and also use it to sand the edges.|
|Remove the very, very thin bezel to access the mounting screws.|
|Snap on the screw covering bezel and there you go.|
|This is our salon. The table and sofas are covered with tools and boxes.|
|This is our V-berth, our bed. It is filled with radar and the wind sensor and other stuff.|
|The boat looking in from the steps, ugh. Note the dehumidifier over the sink. It works great!|
|Ahhhhh, the reward on the drive home. Always keep a spoon in your car :-)|
