We are thinking of investing in a new Radar, probably a raymarine E series and were going to include an ais system. Question is how easy is it to install the cable through the mast...it looks like a nightmare. how do you avoid all the halyards vhf cables etc etc and get it out the hole where the old one was routed...................
We are intending a channel crossing in the summer so would be happier with some thing to ease peace of mind
Is this a do it yourself job or is it better to get it fitted and set up by a professional
I am even contemplating having it on a post attached to the stern as the previous owner removed it as it disrupted the airflow when racing, (along with the topping lift and lazyjacks)
We have a JRC 1500 mk2 that came with the boat but has been removed and the cables cut at the mast step so we would need new cabling, have tried to get the cables but there are no longer available, even if I get the cables there no guarantee the thing will work anyway. Hence going the new route.
Thanks in advance
