just for an update on the DAUNTLESS project…been working on the bridge recently and have good news to report. The satellite gyro (Sperry NaviStar) is powered up and working, same for the depth sounder (JRC) and the one radar (Sperry BridgeMaster) that came with the vessel. Installed a VHF (Icom) yesterday and have a GPS (Furuno) going in tomorrow. Pretty much ready up top to do those long delayed seatrials. Will be getting the autopilot from Flyer69 in November and installing that when it arrives. Still have to workout issues with the 2nd radar (Furuno) but don’t need it for the move north the LaConner in November. Over the winter will be adding redundant electronics or replacing some of the existing with higher standard equipment.
downstairs, I am waiting to get one cooler core back from a radiator repair shop and should be good to go with the machinery. Also will be getting back to the potable pump as well as the other systems I have not yet tested like sanitary and HVAC.
stay tooned for updates
