So I have now secured a complete set of new instruments for Insatiable
, and without breaking the bank! I purchased them through e-bay, over a period of about 4 months, all from the same vendor.
is all from the "NASA Clipper" range, so each instrument has the same size & display unit. I have got:
1. Speed / log, including transducer
2. Depth sounder
(with in-hull fitting, rather than thru-hull)
speed & direction, including masthead unit
5. Close-hauled wind
repeater (not really needed, but once a racer
The total cost for all of the above was only $US 740 ($AU 975)
instruments (Yazaki; over 20 years old) are mounted in a box just forward of the companionway
. I have started to build a new box to house the new instruments. I got some marine
ply off-cuts for free from my local hardware/timber store, so the whole operation hasn't cost me too much.
