Re: Datamarine Corinthian II Wind Machine Problem
My DMI wind instrument hasn't worked properly in years. Direction vane seems to be Ok, but cups don't give accurate wind speed. A few days ago we were closehauled, going 6kts and the readout said 0. Cups were spinning like mad.
I guess one day I may replace it, but it's such a hassle. Need to unstep mast, remove unit, pull cable, install new cable, new wind unit, etc.
To OP, as msmith10 says, don't waste your money trying to fix. These things are like 20+ years old. Instead of spending $300 to fix, pay a little more and find a newer "used" Raymarine or Tic-Tac unit when you so desire.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
