A few years ago I fitted a Simrad
instrument and masthead sender, foolishly connecting the two with a single
30 metre simnet cable. Now that I am looking at pulling out the mast
again I would ideally like to cut this cable and rejoin it when the mast
goes back in, either by splicing directly or by cutting in half a 300mm cable I have and splicing those ends onto the bare ends created by cutting the 30m cable. Would then use the simple male/male cylindrical simnet joiner.
I could also un-run the cable from the mast back to the instrument; leave it coiled in a locker abaft the mast and buy another 10 metre cable and joiner to run back to the instrument.
Any ideas what might work
