New Member, Upgrading a bunch of instruments on a classic 40' CCA design racer/Cruiser for daysailing on SF Bay, cruising the delta and near short North Pacific.. Please move if in the wrong place.
Thinking of B&G TRiTON Speed/Wind/Depth/Temp sensors as the backbone from the Main mast coming aft towards the cabin/Helm under the floor boards above the bilge.
A Triton High Current Pilot with RC42N feeding a Zeus2 at the binnacle, and an auxiliary Vulcan plotter on the cockpit bulkhead, with a 4G Radar on the Mizzen at spreaders (to display on the Zeus2), as well as feeding a forward/side scan sonar from a legacy Interphase transducer to the video port on Zeus, augmented by a B&G forward scan through a sonar bridge. Toss in a new V50 VHS for AIS receiver with antenna at Mizzen mast head and probably a Sound bridge and use iPads and iPhones for auxiliary displays, and to run Regatta for racing.
Will the new NMEA2k Sensors likely fit in the old B&G Through hulls?
(had port/starboard speedo/log, would go with one depth/speed/temp and one forward scan. )
Will the Vulcan replace a Wifi-1 and an external GPS? or do I need both for the Pilot & Zeus to navigate ?
Does the separate WiFI-1 allow me to echo Radar/Video off the Zeus2 or just relay the chart feed & NMEA strings to an iPad
Does the Vulcan's Sonar input work with the Sonar bridge/Forward scan, or is that a video signal that needs to go on the Zeus?
Does the Triton system make use of heel either from a clinometer or the RC42 to compensate TWA/TWS as well as predict Leeway?
