Active fin stabilizer retrofit - I have pushed the 'button'
After reading many helpful threads here about active fin stabilizers, and following one trip to Sydney and two trips to the Whitsundays (all from home port in Brisbane), I have succumbed and ordered a set of active fin stabilizers.
I got quotes from Trac and Naiad. The Trac quote was about AUD45k higher, so I opted for Naiad (Model 252, 7.5sq foot fins and the new Datum controller). Cost estimate is around AUD75k installed, including the 'pads' which the stabilizers attach to. All work done by the Naiad Australian rep and a shipwright in Brisbane.
I will update this thread with progress/tips/suggestions on the way through, in case others are considering a similar project at some stage.
