Rudder sensor

Today we glued a piece of glass fiber on the stern to mount the rudder sensor on. We also glued a piece to the rudder bracket to attache the arm of the sensor on. We had to glue a pipe thru the water ballast tank to get the cable of the senor on the inside. We think that this place of the senor is the best one because it is well protected from line what could ripe it apart.
We made some ventilation holes under the cockpit seats.
I did a trial fit of the razing bars and did line them up with a steel pipe what did go thru the mast base.

Rotating mast sensor

The sensor for the rotating mast is almost ready, I only have to glue a little tube on the mast side to connect the magnet on. This will be done when the mast is up again so that the exact position can be terminated. The sensor on the mast base can be removed. It is hold in its place with 3M duolock.
I made a transport bags for the halyards. The mast has now a support on the front to keep it in the upright position. I installed a 12V / USB wall sock for charging. At the moment I am busy with the rudder sensor, I post some pictures tomorrow.
