Multible outlets from a single thru hull. http://katherinecharterfishing.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/2/multible-outlets-from-a-single-thru-hull 3 way thru hull3 way thru hull


More on our off season projects. We needed to add 3 1/2" ports for sea water so rather than install 3 thru hulls we got a 1 1/4". We got a 1 1/4" nipple and 3 1/2" barb fittings. A little tig welding on the stainless and we have what we want.

Panda generator vibration isolation mounts were toast. Panda wanted $ 15 each. A little research and we found 4 of them ( 8mm vibration dampeners ) on Amazon for under than 10 bucks !

Interfacing Lowrance units http://katherinecharterfishing.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/1/interfacing-lowrance-units Figured out today that we had to use the second eia port on the LSS rather than the third one to allow the 2 Lowrance HDS10Gen2 units on Katherine 2 to share date. Pretty cool once we figured it out.
