    Reliability B&G vs NKE

    OK, take your tool bag up the mast, disconnect the wand, try not to drop anything....., sure it can be done, at least with my 213, but should it? I've replaced my pcb. There are some delicate bits in there. Maybe Sweare has some extra hands.

    Reliability B&G vs NKE

    Just take the wand down and do it in the cabin where dropped parts are less likely to go Splash. Cheers, Joe

    B&G WR10 pilot remote battery life?

    No help here. We haven't had the problem with our WR10.

    NKE

    As of a couple of months ago, the dealer in Newport, RI (Euro Marine Trading) was still selling/servicing NKE electronics.
  5. Perhaps, but if you're referring to Russel Brown's post, you're wrong. RB has more than a little experience with proas, both building and sailing. I think you'll also find that many multi sailors are quite interested in all varieties going back to the success of Cheers in the OSTAR. Dick Newick designed several proas including a 60'er that tickled my fancy a few decades ago.

    Ocean Cat 49

    The OCs are LeRouge copies built in North Carolina. That particular boat, now named Parallax, is tied up right behind us in Norfolk, VA. A little Googling will get you the full history of Ocean Cats. The new owner did find some surprises, but I think he's happy with the purchase. With just a bit of luck, he'll be headed for the Caribbean in 12 days.

    Masthead VHF antenna and cable

    Vesper AIS/VHF antenna, Vesper AIS/VHF/FM active splitter, LMR400 cable, AMEC B600 AIS. Probably 80' cable on 48' cat.

    Ethernet B&G H5000 and WIFI Mobile Hotspot

    I know I'm missing something here, but I don't know what. Just yesterday I was connected to H5000 cpu 192.168.0.2 via ethernet and to marina wifi configuring my system. No problems, no confusion. The connections are using different network adapters. I was able to go anywhere on the web while connected to the cpu. ??????

    Blue water cruising books

    True enough, but a lot of hands on time on the boat is working, not sailing. Some reading makes the work go a little better.
  11. Boeing Surplus? Did you say "Boeing Surplus"?. A lot of northwest multihulls were built with the leftovers from airplanes and missles. Those were exciting times.

    Blue water cruising books

    And for that we have "An Embarrassment of Mangoes" by Ann Vanderhoof.

    Yeah, Fatty's good. Sort of takes off from where Herb Payson ended.
  14. I doubt many bendytoys or lagoons will do 300 miles in 24 hours in any conditions. While it's not directly pertinent to the OP, it's one of my favorite videos. The guy's having a great time going really fast in the ocean over 1200 miles. Hot damn!
