Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Just another data point for NMEA 2000 cable pricing:
    Maretron’s Micro T currently retails for $17.64, and the 3 meter made-up cables list for $26.31,
    with nickel-plated brass fittings and gold plated contacts.
    I’m glad the working group has settled on this as the single standard, as it’s cost effective, shielded, and watertight.
    (and yes, I do work for Maretron)

    Thanks for the gentle correction, Frank. I thought I looked up the $21 and $44 prices in the latest Maretron price list, but I got them wrong.

    In dire need (like yesterday) of a Lowrance “blue” to Lowrance “red” male-male adapter cable. Possibly could make one by cutting off the end of a “blue” and putting on a Micro-C connector, but don’t know if the wire colors are the same; and if wire colors are not the same, what is the cross-reference (connect what-to-what, in other words). Apparently, Lowrance won’t have a cable ready until end of march (I can’t believe this!) but Three Rivers Marine Electronics in Pennsylvania is advertising one – cost about $18.00.

    Lowrance cables are standard n2k color coded.
    Red – Net-S
    Black – Net-C
    White – Net-H
    Blue – Net-L
    Clear – Drain
    You could also use a field attachable micro-c terminal instead of splicing a micro-c cable with connector.
