    Knots on slippery dyneema shock cord

    I use a anglers loop on the shockcord on my genoa cars. Holds better than any other knot I've used.

    AIS Transponder & transom antenna

    I went with lmr200-db when I redid the coax. I felt it was a good compromise between the 400 and rg-8 or 58.

    Center cockpit vs aft cockpit

    So let's see........ After some impressive thread drift here's what I pulled as the summary..... Pros: Large aft cabin, more interior options, larger galley, engine access, traveler aft of the cockpit, signifies one has successfully navigated middle age Cons: High freeboard/windage, harder to dock single-handed, wetter cockpit, precursor to a trawler, might need a prescription of Viagra, many end up looking like a wedding cake or a pirate ship that seriously needs to lose weight.

    Center cockpit vs aft cockpit

    We are actually looking at the Najad 391/390. I think they have a pretty slick profile for a cc.

    coastal blue water boat recommendation

    I seen that one as well. If it was 3 years from now that would be near the top of our list.
  8. It seems everything in life is a compromise. What are the pros/cons to a center cockpit vs an aft cockpit? Freeboard certainly increases on most center cockpits, but with that you get interior room. But what are the other pros and cons of a center cockpit as they pertain to a cruiser?

    Pole in aft cabin on older Hallberg-Rassy's

    It looks like they did just that on some of the newer ones. This is a drawing of a HR36.

    Pole in aft cabin on older Hallberg-Rassy's

    It would be a nice solid attachment point. I had thought of rebuilding the aft bunk, make it a bit bigger an instead of a single on the other side have a bench seat more like some of the newer ones. The pole would make it quite difficult to do that.

    SeaTalk-1 with i70s display

    This, The ITC-5 is what you need.
  13. I am getting ready to switch out the old Raymarine I-40 instruments and am going to be replacing them with a Triton2. On the port side of the companionway, there are 2 I-40 instruments, stacked vertically. The Tritons cut out will be much smaller than the two I-40's. What's a good looking clean way to mount the new Triton. I've seen some boats where they have put up a piece of wood as a cover/trim. Not sure I like that look. I don't really feel like trying to re-glass the holes. What other options are there for a nice looking installation?

    Pole in aft cabin on older Hallberg-Rassy's

    Its the stern. I've seen video tours of HR's for sale that show the aft cabin with the stripper pole. I'll see if I can dig one up when I get a break.

    Pole in aft cabin on older Hallberg-Rassy's

    You wouldn't happen to have a photo of how that works? I wonder if its possible to fit the old "pole in the bed" ones with a removable one?
