Hi everyone, just an update here to let you know the problem with the GPS not getting picked up by the MFD was fixed by grounding the NMEA2000 power drop cable. I also installed the resistor to the GPS TX that limits the refresh to 1Hz, just in case. Anyhow, if it works... don't fix it
Also, I installed the GWI10 Wind Sensor on the masthead and that works flawlessly. The depth transducer is still a bit erratic in behavior but I reserve final judgement until the boat is in the water.

Now, let's see if I can pinpoint why my nav lights and steaming light don't work after switching to LED bulbs (god, I hate electrical systems and climbing the mast just to check if current reaches the steaming light fixture)
