Re: Raymarine Wireless Tacktick opinions from owners?
Our current boat came with an older Tacktick wind/depth/speed system (MN 100). Must be at least 10 years old now ... maybe more. It has worked well for the four years we've owned the boat. I did have to replace the depth transducer, although I think it was even older than the Tacktick system. And in light airs our windy sometimes gets stuck. I think there is fine grit in the bearings b/c when I took it down three years ago, and cleaned it up, it worked flawlessly for the following season. Overall, I've been quite pleased with the system.
agoffin, this is probably a silly question, but is your mast too high? I think our masthead to the hull transceiver must be about 55 feet. I know our signal strength is low, but has never failed. At 70 feet, might you be too high?
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
