JW has already commented and has given it a :up: :banana:
 
OK, mebbe it's only hard boats that catch fire when the wiring's neat (in Scotland)
 
Its a miracle it didn't catch fire before....:speechles
It had a lump of three core mains cable supplying the console ( not fused ), twisted together wires, corroded connections etc etc.
 
Was that original Falcon work, or someones handywork over here?
 
No, the Falcon work was not bad, this was whoever fitted the equipment etc. for example an aux socket was wired to the back of the switch panel by twisting wires around the spade terminals.

I am soldering all the connections, dont like crimped terminals.
 
Panel Wired

Worse bit done.:)

Nice Mixing desk.

So where are you fitting the twin turntables then?:)
 
Still going....Got all the instruments talking to each other and the Fluxgate is working too, very impressive the way it works.

The plotter(gps) is now talking to the radio (for dsc) and also to the Fuel gauge, it will be interesting to see how the engine uses fuel at different speeds, Fixed up the new aerial ( 1mtr F/glass) and could listen to radio woolwich all day, knocks spots off the old ribrader aerial that was previously fitted. also connected up the ext speaker horn for the Hailer and foghorn facility that the Icom 601 has...very good also Wired in the Command Mic Skt.

next thing is the Batteries, Etc.:dizzy:
