Are you reading any posting
I posted a comment made by a technician regarding how he deals wiring on boats with installing 'MARETRON' backbones i said nothing regarding the 'Lagoon' factory.
You state i don't imply honesty???? You really have a very strange comprehension of the English
Time for you to understand the difference between tinned and untinned wiring.
1) Untinned wiring in a marine environment
oxidises, it will do this for many metres up the wire.
2) This oxidisation is natural, the world used copper wires for transmission
of electricity to all houses until the cheaper aluminium alternative came along.
3) The critical part of any wiring is the end connections (are you following this?) hence the MARETRON technicians method of tinning each end to ensure forever and a day a good as can be connection.
4) The wire between oxidises it doesn't corrode, your Aluminium mast
and your rigging
wire also oxidise it's the metals reaction to the air we breathe and this oxidisation actually protects the metal from further DEGRADATION ...got it?????
For you to question my honesty is your perogative, i guess you simply either love to argue or you are a rather inept person who needs to attack forum members by personal threadrifting attacks. Do i care? NAHHHH not one snippet of untinned wire.......
Now that wasn't too difficult was it?
Something you might like to consider, a forum is a pedestal
where contributors can offer their individual experience
to the fray, they may be correct they may be half correct but you mate need to shooooosh to listen and learn.
