Start with a simnet cable and cut off one end. Or cut it in half or elsewhere if you want to make two cables. Then attach. Field installable N2K plug on the cut end of the cable(s) and you nownhave one or two simnet to N2K cables. The field installable plug ends are available from Defender. Just search for Maretron and scroll through the parts
. There may be alternate suppliers and manufacturers, but the Maretron/Defender route
will definitely work
. The plug ends are expensive - $10 or $20 each, but then you are done and can get back to boating
