    That sounds good Graham, we may go out and about on a few more windy days and use the stern thruster to be a bit more precise.

    Has anyone started their generator from the engine room not using the salon panel? If so was there a bypass switch on the generator or no?

    Never mind, Frank is addressing my question in another thread in electrical stuff if you want to follow.

    Has anyone mounted a tv behind the helm seat (facing the cockpit) if so what size did you use? If not where in the cockpit did you mount it, what size and which mount did you use?

    That was actually coming from "Minister of Media". He just wanted to make sure you have plenty functional entertainment. :grin:

    How does the 26 work out? I was thinking either 26 or 32. I have the factory looking mount from FP Marine. My concern is 26 not being big enough or 32 being too big. Do you have any pics?

    You should wait until you get through the inlet before you install anything breakable. Plus the 32" will take at least a knot off your cruise speed.

    Mike your a funny guy. Lucky for me I will have several guys on board with local knowledge and the rest of the time they'll be hanging on the swim platform and kicking to get me that knot back. Hmm maybe 36?!

    Too bad, I was looking and there was another looking as well but I believe he has a contract. Any experience you can share with the 460? Take a look at the 480 thread.
