Caravelle - electronics upgrade for Wind Song

May 4, 2015
Thought I would share my winter electronics upgrade on Wind Song. Replaced failing datamaine instruments and transducers with new B&G Triton2 package plus their Autopilot, Zeus3 12" chart plotter, AIS, Icom502 VHF, N2K backbone, and a backup standalone furuno GPS. After 2 summers of single handing with just a paper chart in the cockpit and no autopilot , this will make sailing even more fun. Also replaced the breaker panel as the original was unreliable, with uncertain protection. I have been upgrading systems on her every winter, waiting to get to a full deck and bright work restoration in next 2 years.
I am heading up the Maine Coast this summer for 5 weeks, hope to make it to Roque Island, I was last there in 1988 on the SSV Tabor Boy.
