Angry Gord and Rich got it right

My ABYC guys said Gord & Rich's comments were spot on. Splicing those tiny cable wires is a challenging high risk move even for the pro's. High probability that you will expose the system to secondary signal interference. Oops! Didn't mean to have frown icon in the title.

Hello All,
I am a new member to the Cruisers Forum. We recently purchased La Vita, our 1987 Hans Christian 33T.

We are preparing her for cruising and are planning to add Radar. We have researched the subject, but we cannot recent comparison between Furno, Garmin, or RayMarine.

Any thoughts? Would you purchase your radar again?

Please let me know if you require further information.

Thank you all, very much for considering this question.

Interesting....when we installed our 1725, I called Furuno tech support and the said that splicing was not a problem. The tech said that it is done frequently and if the connections are good, there is no loss in performance. They suggested using a small bus bar with a cover to re-connect. We spliced and the radar works great!!!!

Hi Lynn:

this is a great forum with some very knowledgable people. I would start a new thread for your question. I frequent this site more than THS b/c it is more active.
