Spaghetti electronics

The refit of the Clipper isn’t limited to some carpeting and overhauling the rigging, also all old electronic will be replaced with new. This, combined with 13 year of electronic evolution, forces us to add new cables. Some 6 kilometers of old cables will be reused. This amount will be matched with new cables to. All those cables will be placed before the wood paneling goes up. Even though yours truly is quite proficient in fitting a socket in his own home and laying the cables for this, the cabling that is going on right now is beyond my grasp. In awe we watch the electricians cut huge bundles of cable wires and attaching them to complex insides of cabinets or equipment. The knowledge that I’m entrusted with just the sailing of the Stad Amsterdam reassures after seeing all tangle. Obviously trusting these electricians to deliver top notch work. When pushing the light switch would have the result of full speed ahead, my awe would be diminished somewhat.
