    Are mast mounted displays better wired or wireless?

    It is workable to hook up a MicroTalk to other brand of electronics. I did with our B&G H5000. While upgrading the Raymarine/Wireless System for our J35, I experimented on Misty with the H5000 by adding t(e MicroTalk via NMEA2000 hook up. And it worked. So in theory, it will work with just about any other brand.

    Black Widow Bottom Paint

    Over the years, I have tried everything from Balltoplate to local stuff, and Mr. Fast Bottom is spot on. I have a diver wipe down both boats every Friday like clock work.

    I hate Yacht brokers

    From Ballard Sailor. - this is generally at the buyers expense. when we bought Misty, we always assumed it was our responsibility. If you are not ready to accept responsibility, then don’t waist people’s time. after that, due diligence. Again, if you can’t be responsible to do due diligence, don’t waist people’s times. last but not least, if you expect cheap you will get cheap. There will always be good deals. But cheap deals will cost you later.

    Well thanks to the wankers in China, HK is getting screwed Royal and people are fleeing. I hear two RP-75s up for sale. Pyewacket for around 350K and Enigma for about 250k?
