New Instruments!!!

  

Im excited about this one!  I have never had working instruments on the boat and it’s been on my list of things to do and now it’s a reality. I have installed the Raymarine Wireless super sailing pack. This is a complete package that comes with 2 displays, 1 multi data display and one wind display, a Wind Mast instrument, a depth transducer, a speed transducer, a wireless hull transducer and a NMEA data interface. The cool thing is that this is a wireless and solar/battery powered system. The only wiring that needs to be done is to run the wires from the transducers to the Hull transducer. The displays and wind instrument are wireless and solar/battery powered. No wires to run! Just turn on one of the displays and the system powers on and shows whatever data is in the system! Now have accurate speed, wind, and depth data! The plan is to add an NMEA to WiFi interface and wirelessly interface with iPad and iPhone into the network for additional data displays and also remote control of devices, eventually chart plotting and autopilot.  Now that The system is working, I need to get the wind transducer to the top of the mast then decide where to put the displays. Good problems to have!
