Since the yard owner said they blasted your through hulls I am wondering if you have any crap blown up your engine water/AC/watermaker intakes? If so, how much of an issue might that be?

That's my guess. They shoved the wand into the sink drains before pulling the trigger and that's why there is no damage to the exterior gel coat above the waterline.

I'm guessing the yard had a rookie on the sand blasting pressure washer.

My forensic evidence is the splatter pattern associated with the high shelf. Above the shelf there is very little deposit. The shelf seems to be blocking an upward stream of spray.

The GPSMap 740s and Radome came in yesterday (I forgot this West Marine always gets deliveries on Tuesday, not Friday like I'd hoped.)

Today I called Garmin and after pressing a few menu options the phone was answered on the first ring by a native English speaker. After consulting with someone else, he confirmed that I can run a regular Cat 5 cable with RJ45 plugs from a connector on the flybridge down to the lower helm so I can plug the unit in at either location. Only thing I'll have to buy is another power connector.

In case you're wondering, no, it's not "regular" Ethernet from the radome to the MFD, so I can't network it with other devices. Still, using off-the-shelf cables and plugs is sooooo much better than the old radomes that used a 3/4" cable bundle with 10 different sizes and types of wires in it. I had to splice one of those once, what a pain!
