Don't drop the mast! I was turning the mast and it slipped off the mast hanger and I'm glad it missed my leg! Thanks Rocco for giving me a hand getting it back up on some horses.
I don't know if I'm getting any better at these videos but I think I'm at least making some decent progress on the boat projects!
This is the last Raymarine installation video, and from the last video, I finished off the transducers in the hull. Using 3M 5200 marine sealant to secure them in place, you need to make sure that the 5200 has at least 7 days +10 celsius to ensure a proper hardening.
Following, my instrument housing had 4 instruments (the dead Signet Marine ones), but I only wanted to put 3, speed, depth and wind, into it. So I plugged the holes, did a tonne of sanding and got the housing freshly painted with Interlux Brightside White (over Interlux primer).
While I was painting in a makeshift paint booth, I also painted the cabin hatch and hatch cover.
After drilling in the holes, and assembling the gaskets onto the instruments, my final instrument cluster was done!
BTW: Not on video, finishing up the hull paint was 5 layers of Interlux 2000E barrier cote and then 3 layers of anti-foul MicronCSC Shark White.
