Here's first draft of a layout for the N2K builder for updates to Lioness.
She's a Bermuda 40 Yawl, with legacy B&G sensors. In discussion with Eric Steinberg of Farralon US, we are planning to remove everything except the Masthead wind sensor and replace with current model H5000 "Hercules" kit for club racing, incidental shorthanded daysailing and coastal cruising.
There's a 2002 Vintage Interphase "PCView" transducer mounted just before the keel that gives forward looking and +/- 45 degree side to side scan sonar. Plan is to display that on the Zeus2 Video on cockpit bulkhead as needed when gunkholing and use a Raymarine CAM100 mizzen mounted below the Radome/Hailer for forward looking Daylight/IR Night vision. Eric's advice was to use the Maretron SSC300 in place of the R42N.
Furuno Navtex has been in the box for 10 yrs waiting for install, plan to connect it to the NMEA 0183 feed from H5000, and provide a WiFI-1 bridge for slaving Ipads to Zeus2 displays, as well as browser access. The Actisense EMU and tank levels are future project.
Any thoughts on better topologies/materials/units are welcome.
