I have a set of Italian FIAMM air horns that I took from my first Motorhome when I upgraded it to HADLEY Truck horns. I have tried them on the boat, but the little 12v compressor that easily drove the existing horns would only drive one of them, so I have been looking for a solution. I have a small 120v compressor with me that I will try when I get it home, but 12v would be so much easier.
Thanks.
Here is the link to where I bought them. I got the 46115. I have no interest in this company...

Helm Seats and New Electronics

Been busy the past few days installing new helm chairs. The first pic is the old uncomfortable original helm seat. These are Todd helm seats and Springfield Mariner II pedestal. I had to modify the carpet a bit in order to meet the 22" clearance per instructions.

I also removed the old Lowrance (backup MFD) and moved the 9" c97 in its place. Then I installed a eS127 with a 12" screen. I have to install another sonar transducer and new cables between the two MFD so they can talk to each other.

Come April, I will be having a Raymarine EV 400 auto pilot.

On to the next project.......

You are going to really enjoy the Raymarine es. Excellent feature set and easy to use. We had one on the last boat - a very capable piece of gear.

They didn't last long. I put them up for grabs with our yacht club and they lasted 5 minutes!

In my case, I would be afraid I'd get too comfortable and drift off to sleep.

We used Boat Blanket from Sailrite to make a dash mat for our boat. It really cut out all the glare and reflections from the white dash. It comes 72 wide and is $19.95 per yard. The neat thing is that you cut it to size and the edges need no binding. It will stick to velcro. We also used it to make covers for the bimini top tubing, just cut to size and sew on the hook side of velcro tape. No need for the loop side.

Auto Pilot

For those that know me, I like doing my own work. But with the auto pilot the rudder cooper tubing will need to be cut and a pump motor installed. So I have actually hired a company here in the Portland area to do the install.

Plus I don't have to run any cables/wires, so my knees are saved.

The project started yesterday. I am having a EV-400 Raymarine system with a remote control installed. I am also keeping it in the Raymarine family.

I had to determine which hydraulic ram I have for the rudders to match it up to the pump. I have a K-2 Ram and will be using a type 2 pump.

The electronic Compass was installed with the SeaTalk backbone. Funny we found an old Raytheon "tin can" under the drawer. It is a NEMA 0183 compass. When ASD was new it was a show boat, so it came with all the best at the time like a 48" open array radar and a color depth sounder with Loran stuff. Brian, my installer told me that for the time it was a good system.

Ahoy Tom,

We had a Raymarine autopilot on the previous IRENE and were very happy with it. I liked the setup process, the way it learned the boat, and the integration with the MFD. I think you will be very happy with it.

Don't store your toolbox next to the white disc with protruding wires

Mark that drawer so you won't be tempted to store anything metallic in it. Friend of ours hung a left one day cuz their new BBG toolset slid near their compass on a roll one day. Surprised the heck outta them at the time.

Looking good. Maybe I missed it, what brand of helm chairs did you install? Happy cruising this summer. How much water upstream is coming at you? Lots of H2O in BC right now.
