Safety Netting

Tammy installed the netting around the lifelines to keep us from dropping stuff overboard and added some extra safety for the grandsons to sail with us.  Really turned out very nice!

AIS, DMK Engine Monitor

Tammy & I were able to install the Vesper Marine AIS (ship traffic) using a Splitter off of the VHF antenna on the top of the mast (52').  It also provides a FM antenna.  The DMK Engine Monitor now provides alternator voltage, both battery banks voltage, RPM, engine coolant and oil pressure to our on board wifi system, we can now see all this and the other ships name etc. on a moving map.  They can see us too, huge safety upgrade!
