    Propeller Shaft Fore/Aft play

    Not uncommon for boats to have offset struts that allow pulling the shaft w/o dropping the rudder. Hopefully yours is setup this way. Cheers

    'Bulking' a halyard... best practices?

    Swapping out the cams for smaller diameter line might also be an option. I just did that on a set of Spinlock XTS. Replaced the 8-14s with 6-10s. Much better for the 8-10 mm lines I run. Cheers

    Reliability B&G vs NKE

    Yup. What Moon said. I would not hand control of my autopilot over to an often non-reliable Windows PC.

    Reliability B&G vs NKE

    An app on a Windows PC was driving your autopilot? Do tell.

    Reliability B&G vs NKE

    OneNet. But not sure when/if it will see wide adoption.

    Wind instrument cable

    The 508 wind sensor cable connector is barely larger than the cable ... you might be able to snake it w/o cutting. IMO the wind vane design is ridiculously delicate ... handle with care.

    Wind instrument cable

    OK, if wired that is probably the WS310. That connector is indeed larger than the 508, so I can see the need to have to cut and slice. I have a 310 waiting for install as well (508 replacement), please let us know what worked for you. I'm with you on the wired versus wireless choice.

    Wind instrument cable

    Which specific B&G wind sensor are we talking about here?
