Alex, in my case I have an in-mast furling main, so the outhall pulls the sail out and the furling line pulls it back in. I also control with it how deep I want the main to be just like you would with a traditional outhall.

To avoid breaking the locking tab on the XAS, don't smack the handle down to close them.

Antoni,

Thanks for the reminder.  I had forgotten about your roller reefing setup.

Today I received a Lewmar 30ST I ordered from eBay, it matches one of the cabin top winches I have and now it and the one I got are getting mounted on the mast. Spent a couple of hours on the computer drawing up a mount design. Mount base has a 5º offset. Base plate is 6x6in, I just have to figure out to what degree I need to bend the "feet" to.

I’m looking for some ideas where you guys have mounted all your electronic “black boxes”. I need to mount the acu-200, ais700 and ray90 radio. So far the only idea I like is to remove the shelf above the nav station and place them there behind a bulkhead like in the mkII. Any other options?

Antoni : I mounted a few items way in the back (up high) of the hanging locker on the port side. 

You have to be thin and be able to turn on your side, but they are out of the way!!

I think his holding tank was or is going his hanging locker?
On my MK l which has a lower switch panel than the MKll, I used the space above the switch panel and built a removable teak plywood bulkhead/panel where I mounted the faceplates of several instruments and various black box type components are concealed behind it. I also mounted some stuff deep in the hanging locker as well.

I will be going with what you’ve done, I’ve changed my mind with the holding tank location. It is now going to be where the fuel tank is and a new fuel tank is going to get fabricated to go where the aft water tank lives and a new water tank is getting mounted under the v-berth. Lol! I’m sure it seems to most of you like I just want to move #### around for the hell of it lol.

There’s a logic to my madness.

My plan is to box in the area above my electrical panel to allow flush mount of displays and panels and the black boxes behind.  This boxed in area will also gobble up the sliding door cabinet at the very top.  I have never found that area to be very useful for much.

Agreed! I was only trying to see if others have found other places that make sense.

I also made a fascia above the main distribution panel to mount AIS, Last Watch 2, and DC switch panel for AIS, Last Watch 2, propane, fixed VHF, and portable VHF charger. Chart plotter has the Raymarine cover on vertical section. The tablet is my repeater for the cockpit. I store it there on a Ram mount attached to the teak rack. Only other electronic boxes are the digital echo charge and MPPT controllers for solar. They are mounted to a "breadboard" under the starboard sette where it's dry, cool, and protected from damage.

I also have some ideas for the vertical bulkhead at the aft end of the nav table.  There is so much space there to make use of.

Also, how did you mount the "breadboard" at the stbd setee? I like that idea for solar controllers and my victron orion (similar to an echo charger).

I cut a piece of plywood to a length and trimmed to fit vertically between the hull and the underside of the fiberglass that the outboard salon cushion sits on. I painted both sides except where the adhesive bond would be before installing. I then used adhesive epoxy to bond it top and bottom. Attached a picture from my electrical write-up that might help.
