Re: Depolarized VP2030 alternator?
I believe its a standard, very ordinary, cheaply repairable, Bosch alternator (need to check this when down at the boat next) - the type with the regulator bolted on the back of the brush holder.
FWIW, if I was having charging issues, I'd pull the alternator off (2 bolts) and take it to a local Auto Electrician... and if my mechanic started talking about "polarisation", I'd be finding a new mechanic.
