R40 - more modifications

Sharing the modifications I have done so far on my R40: #1 USB-sockets right to the Simrad 12" NSS EVO3 screens to power iPad + holder. Even if I have dual Simrad NSS EVO3 12" screens I find the iPad to be way quicker to handle at least charting. #2 Conversion of the sofa in the master cabin to an e...

Re: R40 - Water in engine room!

On the same topic on water leakage. #1 I also suggest checking the roof. I had a major leak into the hollow space under the antennas that eventually lead excessive amount of water collected at the front of the roof and it started to drop in the sealant above the throttle. I used an endscope camera t...

Re: R40 Remote Control

Great, since I have been wiring all across the R40 I am very familiar with the wiring ducts. There is a side duct, if you remove the seating clothing you can open a wooden lid (under the seating). From there you can see a wiring duct which leads to the room behind the wardrobe on the starboard side ...

Re: R40 electric wiring

After talking to a few people that have made modifications to R40 and spending a day at the boat I now know exactly how the ducts works. A) If you want to use the starboard side there is a duct above the fuel tank that holds a few cables. Make sure you use a towrope of larger size (have to be sturdy...

R40 modification of sofa in master bedroom

I have made a modification of the R40 sofa in the master bedroom. Sometimes additional space is needed for kids and using the sofa isn't really helpful. So I bought a slice of gaboon plywood that I ran in a CNC machine and added a chrome leg. I then ordered a custom foam mattress. It's easy to remov...

Re: R40 electric wiring

Some updates.... Didn't remove the carpet fully today but tried to find if there is any duct leading from the circuit board (under the stairs) to the starboard side cabinet in the master bedroom (behind the white wall which can be opened). The cabinet then leads to the helmet so I just need to find ...

Re: R40 electric wiring

Thanks, have you find a way to wire from the engine room starboard side to the helmet (where you have the navigation displays) instead of port side ? Can't recall but isn't the carpet glued to the floor ? This image is from the electric distribution panel (behind the stairs), the big hole seems to g...

R40 Additional USB-sockets

Hi all, I have been doing a few modifications on the R40 and there is a quite easy way to add additional USB-outlets/sockets to the helmet panel if you are interested. There is a USB-outlet/socket behind the captain seating but it's not very convenient to use if you for example want an smartphone an...

R40 electric wiring

Hi all, Have anyone wired anything from the circuit panel (behind the stairs) to the helmet and/or the engine room ? I basically are trying to do two things: A) I am trying to determine the easiest wiring path from the helmet (behind the navigation panel) to the engine room because I want to add a e...

R40 Stern Windlass

Hi All, Since I heavily use stern windlass I had to do some modifications to my R40 since it can't be ordered with this from the factory. Someone that has a lot of knowledge of custom installing windlasses on Bavaria boats are https://www.anchorlift.com/ . I ordered a windlass with all accessories a...
