Rubber boot for Raymarine wheel-pilot connector

Recommended Posts

The rubber boot protecting the electrical connection has fallen apart.

I called Raymarine, they don't sell the boot but they were more than happy to sell me a new cable-set (~80 bucks), which, oh by the way, would come with a new boot.

Feh.

Anyone have a source for little rubber connector boots?   Plan B is to wrap it with self-amalgamating tape, but I'd rather do it "right" if I can...

Good luck finding one, I couldn't.  White rigging tape is what I'm running.

when I installed mine, I said  What a piece of shit..

At the Newport show, I asked the RM reps why cheap ass cover?

"send it in as a quality complaint, they don't listen to us.."

Immediately wrapped in self amalgamating tape and then electrical tape to stop any UV getting to it..

Works fine.
