⛵️ Let's talk about Sailing and Navigation Electronics #179

We’re Duca and Roberta, a Brazilian couple that have bought a 44ft steel sailboat (Dinieper Tropic 1200, designed by Joubert and Nivelt) that was abandoned on the hard for 22 years in Guarujá, Brazil. We are on the mission of refitting her to travel the world taking our house with us!

    Is a lot of work!!! Your perfectly right even a new boat will come with some problems that need to be fixed someone are easy someone takes month to solve! Don't forget on the Side of the autopilot brain to the terminate the backbone of nmea2000 network! The vhf antenna have a better reception on the top of the mast!

    Hola queridos Roberta y Duca. Primero mi admiración y luego mis felicitaciones, perdón por el castellano pero estoy seguro que nos entenderemos. Yo no creo que hubiera sido capaz en mis 30 años de náutica de hacer lo que vosotros habéis hecho en este breve periodo de tiempo. Aunque sin duda he navegado mucho mas y espero que vosotros lo hagáis pronto. Pocas personas conocerán su barco como vosotros al vuestro. Habrá cosas que fallaran y otras que habrá que mejorar pero vosotros estaréis más que preparados para solucionarlas. Luego de más de un año de seguir la preparación de vuestra aventura y vuestro barco he visto como os informáis y asesorías para tomar todas vuestras decisiones en cuanto a la configuración de Odd. Excelente trabajo. Pero, aquí mi pero, la rutina de navegar, el día a día en el mar, estar lejos del pantalán y la dársena son otra realidad muy distinta a la teoría, lo que imaginamos durante el bricolaje y a todo lo que deberemos aprender navegando estando solos en nuestro mundo y los hábitos de esa nueva vida. Supongo que todo esto ya lo habéis pensado. Mi reflexión surge por la configuración de la electrónica de navegación que habéis planteado. En mi opinión el dispositivo principal de navegación, chart plotter, y un laptop adicional con Open CPN y bien conectado a la red NMEA y un (al menos) Iridium GO deben estar en la mesa de cartas. Los repetidores multifunción todos a la bitácora, donde estaréis la menor cantidad de tiempo gracias al piloto automático. Sin embargo, todos tus planes, rutas, descarga de gribs, y pronósticos meteorológicos los harás en la mesa de cartas. Todo esto no es cómodo de pie en la bañera, menos de noche o con mal tiempo. En largas travesías puedes controlar todo desde el interior, y solo salir para reglar alguna vela o hacer una maniobra y en navegaciones costeras te llevas fuera el IPad con Navionics y ya esta. Espero que estos comentarios no les molesten, y les puedan ser útiles Mi mayor deseo es veros navegar pronto. Com todo meu amor a voçes e a o Brasil. Buenos vientos y buena proa!! Eduardo Hello dear Roberta and Duca. First my admiration and then my congratulations, sorry for the Castilian but I am sure that we will understand each other. I don't think I would have been able in my 30 years of sailing to do what you have done in this short period of time. Although without a doubt I have sailed much more and I hope that you will do it soon. Few people will know their ship like you will know yours. There will be things that will fail and others that will have to be improved but you will be more than prepared to solve them. After more than a year of continuing the preparation of your adventure and your ship, I have seen how you inform and advise you to make all your decisions regarding the configuration of Odd. Excellent work. But, here my but, the routine of sailing, the day to day at sea, being away from the dock and the dock are another reality very different from theory, what we imagine during DIY and everything that we will have to learn while sailing alone in our world and the habits of that new life. I suppose you have already thought about all this. My reflection arises from the configuration of the navigation electronics that you have proposed. In my opinion the main navigation device, chart plotter, and an additional laptop with Open CPN and well connected to the NMEA network and one (at least) Iridium GO should be on the chart table. The multifunction repeaters all to the helm, where you will be the least amount of time thanks to the automatic pilot. However, all your plans, routes, download gribs, and weather forecasts will be done at the chart table. All this is not comfortable standing in the copkit, less at night or in bad weather. On long journeys you can control everything from the inside, and just go out to adjust a sail or make a maneuver and in coastal navigations you take your IPad out with Navionics plus the repeters and that's it. I hope these comments do not bother you, and they can be useful My greatest wish is to see you sail soon. All my love to voçes e a o Brasil. Good winds and good bow !! Eduardo. Google translate.

    I might have missed this answer in a video I haven´t watched yet, but.... Is part of your boat´s restoration and refitting to include a fishing rod and tackle? The ocean is your shopping cart. You even have a grill oven. *P.S.:* I´m surprised that boat dwellers are not allowed to lockdown within their boats at the marina. I´m sure that someone has expressed this obvious wish, and there is a reason it cannot be done, but why?

    A couple things you might wanna consider, try running the backbone the whole length of the boat instead of running legs everywhere, that way you can easily add more stuff to the backbone. Also run a NMEA2000 cable to the engine bay, most engine manufacturers have support for NMEA2000 so that you can see engine parameters on the displays in the system!

    Why do you chose to have the VHF antenna on the arch instead as high up as possible on the mast? The increased range on a vhf call could potentially make your sos call reach someone that it wouldn't if you're placing it as low as the arch. Great video as always! :)

    After you have installed the rudder position transducer, and you discover that when transmitting on your VHF radio causes the autopilot to "go wild", just install a simple ferrite core (or two) on the cable very close to the transducer to eliminate the interference--it worked for us!

    The Autohelm linear drive that you have is a rock-solid device. There was one on the Corbin 39 cutter that we purchased in 1997 that had just completed a west-about world circumnavigation without any maintenance at all (1991-1996). We had the local Raymarine dealer "convert" it for use with the then-current Raymarine autopilot ECU and display in 1997. In fact, all that he did was remove the electronics and bring out the two power wires and the two clutch wires, something that I could have easily done myself. This linear drive served us from Annapolis, Maryland, USA in November 1997 to Auckland, New Zealand in November 2000. During a refit in New Zealand, I performed a thorough maintenance routine on the linear drive, although it was still working perfectly. I rebuilt the drive motor by replacing the two easily obtained ball bearings, turned the commutator, reseated the brushes, removed the balls from the recirculating ball jack screw, cleaned it up and relubricated it. I also replaced the drive belt (easily obtained from Optibelt--just Google Optibelt. We completed our west-about world circumnavigation in 2012. The linear drive is still in operation today.

    For a chart table display, look into a Raspberry Pi, with computer monitor, echoing the NMEA 2000 network, cheap enough, plus chart/radar display or repeater with Open CPN. If I get another boat, in my old age, I will install one. Best wishes

    Hi guys. I loved that you have B&G. I knew since you were putting the mast on.. As you are planning the networks it sounds correct. Just the AIS antenna I find it completely unnecessary. An AIS antenna splitter using the VHF mast top antenna will give you a lot more range. Of course an extra antenna at the back just for safety never hurts. But I would use the one on the top. AIS has very low transmition power and the height of the mast really helps a lot.

    When you make your cable connections you should use some kind of dielectric grease on the connections. That will help keep the corrosion under control in the connectors. In aerospace we use a product called DC-4. It is make by Dow/Corning and should be available on line or locally.

    Three things that might help? 1. Chart plotter = chart table. For route planning. 2. Chart plotter on helm Essential. 4. Underwater forward scan radar. Best thing ever for navigating shallow waters. Oh and whatever cables you buy get a couple of spares. The good thing about B&G is that it will all work when you have finished it. Don't forget to upgrade all the software to the latest versions.

    In the case of your handheld VHF radio, just make sure you have one that can be connected to an external antenna and that you have a propper cable/connector available to do so. A handheld VHF radio has a very short antenna and also usually a maximum output power of 5W (some even less), therefore a very short range. Connecting your handheld VHF to an external antenna (preferably installed at the top of the mast) will increase the range considerably.

    Your autopilot will use a lot of electricity so it’s better to use the windvane, installing your AIS VHF antenna too low and you will not see the ID for a ship that might appear on radar already? Better to draw a diagram and show that in a video. You think the lockdown will finish in only 2 weeks? In Fortaleza it will finish next week but started on March 5th.

    You talk about network and I started to wonder why ships and boats don't use a com network similar to an IP network for computers to talk to each unit. Then you could install a true backbone for all ship system that talk to other gear. It seems like a solution like that would be the next step up and pull everything through one system able to handle all such gear. Basically a network for smart gear or a version of internett for tiny things. Then if the ship was wired up correctly you could just plug things in and there would be a minimal need for wiring anything other than power leads. But maybe technology hasn't caught up to the need yet. if feels like a smart solution to me and with how much electronics a newer ship carries it seems like the smart next step. You'd just need to figure out how to deal with lighting strikes and you'd have a rock steady long lasting system that was plug and play. Maybe wireless is the way to go on a ship? It could still use a unified network though. This is my idea, so if somebody steal it they should remember that, but I also know that it's unlikely that I'm the first to see the possibility.

    The charter plotter place is too easy to get wet and to steal. Better put it in the cabin and use a small one protected together in the helm

    Awesome video's guys. Remember that NMEA2000 network should be powered from the middle down-pin (if 1 power cable is used), if you have lots of instruments, 2 power cables should be used and they should be connected on each side of the backbone.

    With all the health problems with COVID-19 and the requirements to go into lockdown, I feel everyone will understand if you didn’t make a Monday episode. Stay safe.

    I have to say...I am TOTALLY impressed and inspired by your vision for the boat, your thoughtful attention to detail and your ability to create a comprehensive electronic system. KUDOS!

    You guys are so far ahead of Yaba...they are still cutting out rotten wood and cutting frames for the hull. Personally, I think they are a bit crazy to try to fix this rotted out boat...I'm glad you aren't doing that! I salute their optimism, and, I think they are going down the wrong path. Just saying. :)

    While on "Lock-down" for two weeks you may have some periods of time feeling stress & tension. I have found watching Angelina Jordan perform (any of her videos) to be soothing to my soul. She is not from Brazil but from Norway. She is very talented . . . . . and hard to explain. Take Care , RH

    I would show the electronics components and their installation After they are installed (and possibly functioning). Showing how to run wires & possible equipment locations etc. is only valuable IF you are hoping for viewer comments with better ideas. BUT since we, the viewers, are not on the boat we do not have the necessary 'feel' for what will work best. I do enjoy your lengthy explanations on some things but still find I fast-forward a lot to get to the final result. T h a n k s ! ! RH

    How about wrapping the electrical / data cables with Self Amalgamating Tape to minimize any water/salty water humidity entry and damage?

    I don't think you will have a problem with the compass mounted on the helm because I once sailed on a 165 foot long gaff rigged schooner that was called TeVega that was made out of steal and we had the compass mounted on top of the chariot which is a raised section where you steer the boat. TeVega was sold and the new owner calls her DEVA. It's a supper yacht now. The current owner changed the design a bit and doesn't have a chariot because the deck house was removed so the visibility is more open than it was when I was aboard. We had no issue with the compass at all. We didn't have any modern navigation equipment at all. We used a compass, sextant, chart's and math to plot our course.

    Guys I have a B&G system as well, a heads up is that you can use NEMA 2000 cables from any company. Many suppliers have the cables for lower prices than B&G even on Amazon! I love the channel and I wish I had Roberta to help me with my installation. Ben S/V DAWN
