T-Post drawings
« on: April 14, 2008, 11:08:22 AM »
Do you guys have any sketches or schematics of the T-Post on your deck for the long-wire antennas?  Even if you gave us measured dimensions, it would be a big help to the Batfish.

Actually we don't have a T-post anymore. After the conversion to a Fleet Snorkel that went away - we have a long-wire that goes from the back of the sail aft and a floating wire, as well as several whips.

If you like, I can check our archives this Saturday - we have a couple thousand blueprints and there's a chance one of them might include something related to the T-post.

Let me know!

Gil,

  That would really help us out a lot.  The 1MC manual was definitely a wealth of information.  Thanks.
