Can I have a recommendation for someone to install a masthead tdx on a carbon mast and thread the wire through. Never done one before and to make it a bit difficult  I'm terrified of heights! Most likely get a good rig check at same time. Hooking up etc I can do.

 

Yacht will be down Auckland way during SSANZ triple series.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Thanks guys, think I've got it sorted. Wireless Nasa, see how it stands the first SSANZ TRIPLE race.

Just brought one of those back from the UK for fitting to The Bird. Was a fraction of the cost over there. And it stood up to the rigours of international travel in the hold of numerous planes and assorted baggage handlers without a problem!  The NASA gear seems quite popular over there, not flashy but functional seems to be the general opinion. Aiming to get it onto the mast this weekend.

wow - that's a pretty cool unit.

 

950 NZD at 360 Marine

 

349 GBP from NASA Marine in the UK

 

still a pretty big fraction!
