Raymarine ST 60 Questions


I am going to have a bunch of questions on my new to be boat. This one involves electronics - specifically the ST 60 tridata and wind instrument. As I previously posted, the ST 60 wind half works - the wind speed is OK but the wind direction just spins.

I received the wiring test and performed it - all voltages were normal. This test was performed at the junction box where the wires exited the mast. I want to repeat the test at the instrument itself but I can't seem to remove the instrument. It's mounted on a bulkhead next to the companionway. I can see the two thumb screws from inside, but when I remove them the instrument does not budge. Do I need to pull harder or am I missing something?

Next question: I don't believe my instruments are networked. If I try to display apparent wind I get ---. Is networking the ST 60 Speed and Wind as simply as plugging in a Seatalk cable?

Last question: the boat has a Garmin 740S plotter - which is fairly new and supports NMEA2000. Can I buy a Seatalk to NMEA2000 cable and connect all four instruments (wind, speed through water, depth, and plotter)?
