Boat electronics

We are pleased to offer Coxmate or Nielsen Kellerman electronics, factory installed on Swift boats.
There are 4 options to choose from;

1. With no electronics
no arrangement for any wiring.
2. Wiring ready
Coxmate bungs fitted in seat decks, so you can fit your own wiring.
3. With wiring
Coxmate bung fitted in seat decks, and wiring, speakers, impellers, as appropriate.
4. With complete system
Coxmate bung fitted in seat decks, and wiring,speakers, impellers, and control units as appropriate (we cannot send boats with NK control units to some countries, please see our NK page).

In line with FISA's requirements, Swift boats are all built with enclosed seat decks to provide maximal buoyancy in the event of a swamping. This can make it difficult for rowers to put wiring under the seat deck themselves, unless there are Coxmate bungs. Putting wiring above the seat deck is of course very easy to do.

The Coxmate bung is a clever way to keep wiring below the seat deck, without compromising buoyancy. A plastic insert is bonded into the seat deck. A rubber bung fits securely in this insert. It has a number of holes in the underside. The appropriate hole size is chosen, and the hole is then made complete all the way through the bung (either with a special tool, or a drill). Then the side of the bung nearest to the chosen hole is cut through with a Stanley knife, and the wire is pushed into the hole through this split in the side. Finally the bung with wire is pushed into the insert.

We use these bungs when fitting boats for both Coxmate and Nielsen Kellerman electronics.
