The new depth-sounder is installed !

The project of the day was the installation of the new depth sounder. The installation of the thru-hull transducer was noted early in the project, but today was all the mechanical and electrical work. The location of the display head is the same as for the older unit (in fact the mounting bracket is identical), but access to the wiring involves completely removing the ceiling in the galley. And that means removing the VHF marine radio and the Auto Pilot control box and the galley fan. But its all done now.

The “official word” is that we go back in the water on Wednesday, an appropriately deep high-tide being the controlling factor at this point.

The new depth sounder, and it even works (subject to not being in the water, of course).
