Raymarine ST 60 Tridata help! Internal growth?

Sanctuary, an Island Spirit 37 was recently put up for hurricane season and saw some high winds and rain while securely anchored in Sea Cows Bay, Tortola, BVI.

The Owner is aboard now and I am traveling down next week to crew a race and spend the week aboard.

He called me and took this photo while underway:


He was asking for a new bezel and lens but I cannot get replacements that quickly from Raymarine.

The Technicians there tell me the bezel can be removed and cleaned.

Any help here, is this a 2 beer job, a 6 pack job, what tools, what to clean the Acrylic with?
Appears to be red algea to me!!!

clean the acrylic with isopropyl alcohol and then vinegar... The vinegar will help prevent mold from re-occurring.

I'd have to look at my tridata to see how it comes apart. I don't use it anymore, since I switched to TackTick gear.

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.

From one Dog to another, I appreciate your help!!

The owner wanted me to buy a new unit and bring it down, don't think we need that expense, think how many painkillers we cn drink on ilon for what that costs!

Please let me know, photos would be really helpful, I would owe you bigtime Sir!!

They are easy to take apart. There are (I think) 8 small Phillips screws on the back case. Open it up and there are (I think) 3 same size screws on the inside. lift out the rubber boot for the buttons and that's it. We get water intrusion in our gages all the time.

Hint-

Drink the beer after you're done... you end up with fewer spare parts that way.

Well, we did without and won Foxy's Cat Fight to boot!!!

Disassembled the unit and discovered the LCD display is toast.

Turns out we need a new unit altogether, can we make a deal on the one you are not using there dog??
