Thank you for the update!

Peter, thank you for the motivational report. TW28 on the sunny side of Alps is aproaching the final phase of build: sanding and fairing, wiring, windows.. The engine is mounted, also tanks, calorifer, everything under sole besides fuel and water lines, but it is not a big deal. Have to build cosy interior, finish my raspberrypi marine computer. Next year painting... Boat should meet water by September next year or so.
My greetings to all TW28 builders and the rest of brilliant Bateau community ... last but not least greetings to our Jacques and his company,
Dario

I'd love to hear more about the Raspberry Pi computer and how you're integrating it.

Barry, at this stage it is a simple set of raspberry pi with nautic oriented linux and openCPN plotter software. The comp is hooked by hdmi on small lcd tv, which serves as a display. The comp has bluetooth dongle for connection with handy wireless keyboard. GPS is connected with usb. No need to be watertight as tw28 helm is inside the cabin. At this moment it is simple and cheap setting (less than 150$), maybe later I can upgrade everything: https://youtu.be/U3ucE3Rx7Tw
There is an extensive thread at Cruisers & Sailing forum.
Cheers,
Dario
