Well duh perhaps if your question said "does anyone know what the model number is" instead of "what are these instruments" you might have gotten better reponses. You can't expect a specific response if you don't ask a specific question.

Chuckles - go find a lamp post to pee on.
I appolozize, coffee pot at work is broken so I couldn't muster up any pee.

I imagine there would be a model number decal on the back, you should also have a flux gate compass with all this, it might be installed as your autopilot. The flux gate for the st30 has the 'st30' on it in red letters.

If someone had posted a picture of something that I recognised and asked the question "what are these" I would reply those are "description here" instruments.

Perhaps if you were not so quick find fault with my question you might find time to answer the question.

Or do you generally go around being a SA?

I've still got bits of ST50 stuff, but when the combined wind instrument and bird perch met with an unfriendly bridge, I found I could not replace it, only ST60 stuff was available.

But someone here found a new whirly bit for his ST50 bird perch. Try e-Bay.

Thanks for that. No such luck with any decals on the back....

I'll call Raymarine and see what they say

GBurton-

It probably says someplace on the instruments, what model they are... look on the back of the instrument display head. Most manufacturers mark their goods with make/model number someplace. It is probably printed on the back side of the display head someplace.

Did you even bother looking at the instruments themselves... or are you just too lazy?? Or is it that you're illiterate and can't read??? Attacking a upstanding member is not a good way to ingratiate yourself to an online community.

BTW, considering that the ST50 was replaced with the ST60 and has been since replaced by the ST60+, ST70 and ST290.... I doubt you'll get much support for it. IIRC, the ST30 gear was replaced by the ST40 gear. It might help if you said what kind of boat you have the instruments on, since some boats had specific instruments as their stock instruments.

You also might want to read the post in my signature.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

ha ha too much.

Since I took the pictures of the instruments I did indeed look at them I even turned them over and looked at the back. Surprise, no other tags or information on the back - hence this thread on sailnet.
Do you really know if the the ST 30 was superceded by the the ST 40? I can't find any reference to a ST 40.

Yes I can read...but I try not to read your posts

And I'm not new to sailnet so won't read your signature post - In fact I stay away because of people like you. Now thats an attack!

Thanks Chuckles....I did find those after someone said it was a ST50 - that information got me in the ballpark
