    Yeoman nav. aide

    Hi Steve. I have a Yeoman (pro sport I think) but not used it. I picked it up cheap a few years ago. As the Admiralty has just released a set of charts of my sailing area (which fit nicely on the board without folding and with the Yeoman plot points on), I intend to put it into use...

    Engine roon lining?

    I lined the engine room as part of a re-engine (Beta) exercise, so dont have any feel for the difference the insulation had. All I can say is that when working on the deck you cant hear or feel weather the engine is running or not, even at 5kts. Ray. Ray Wilton Ship and Field Support...

    Engine Insulation, Fuel Line

    From memory I used three sheets 1000mm x 600mm x 32mm, but I did run out and had to scrounge a small piece from another Yacht owner in the yard doing the same job to finish off. Regards, Ray (tortuga) Ray Wilton Ship and Field Support Manager School of Ocean Science University of Wales...

    chartplotter/sounder

    Jim. I have used a Garmin Plotter/Sounder and mounted the transducer (the transom mount type) under one of the berths with a liberal coating of Vaseline between the transducer and hull. Works well for bottom detection and no holes to drill. Ray. Ray Wilton Ship and Field Support...
