I've just sent you all directly the pictures of the P79 installation under front cabin floor, mizzen mast dual radars with cameras, and the camera control system and nav station picture as requested. Let me know if you did not receive these. If anyone else was interested let me know and I will upload the pics to the Amel owners site.

Alan, no problem I will go down to the boat today and send you a pic direct after. Also Hanspeter was still wanting one regarding the mizzen mast cameras so will get a pic of that too for him direct too.
The P79 goes directly into my Raymarine ES97 at the helm. The cable they come with isn't long enough to get much past the Nav station so I had my electronics guy extend that cable all the way to the helm. In our case this is only really a 2nd backup depth sounder so I generally don't have it on (ie plugged in to the back of the Raymarine unit) unless we are in shallow water here, travelling between sand banks slowly into shallower water as it is a good 1.5m - 2m in front of the original depth sounder, so a really nice early warning system ahead of the normal sounder before actually hitting the many sand banks here in Moreton Bay.
I should add, apart from saving power, the other reason we don't have the P79 on all the time is because of the faint clicking noises it makes when on. Could possibly annoy someone sleeping up front.
