From Raymarine?!? Surely not..

All things considered, Seatalk Original is pretty good at what it does and, now that you've got it going, you shouldn't have any further issues. I notice they don't use the old 4-pin flat-pack connectors on the new flavours... for several reasons.

Re: Seatalk help needed badly

O.k got good news!! Last night after reading this post I went home and hooked them all together in a line and hooked them to a 12v battery they all lit up and the readouts are on. Next thing is to take them out to the boat and hook the transducres up and see what happens. Thanks for the help.

Glad you got it working O-S.

From what you have posted, it sounds like you had it all connected correctly..

Re: Seatalk help needed badly

All the transducer are mounted on the boat. All the leads have wires at the ends with no plugs. All the gauges have plugs on them. So You are right I think i will need some help.

Re: Seatalk help needed badly

The twist lock plugs are easy... they can only go in one way, and should be labeled somehow as to who goes where. Power is likely part of the connector wiring itself, so it needs to go to the DC panel somewhere.

Was this stuff ever actually installed? if so it should be nearly 'plug and play'. Otherwise you may need some assistance.

You are in desperate need of a knowledgeable local sailling 'friend'.. preferably one with a generous disposition and some free time... Try to find another C&C 30 owner... best odds.

Re: Seatalk help needed badly

There is an auto-compass on the boat a wind cup and vane, a depth gauge, a speed transducer and a st 4000 auto helm. My problem is the wiring? I donít understand any of it. I have all the books that came with the equipment. They look like they all string together with twist lock plugs. I just donít know how to hook up the first hot and ground wire to try the stuff out.
I have I have 3 wires coming from the mast
I have 2 coming from the front Bilge depth and speed.
I have 1 gyro-compass
I have 1 ST-4000
Where do they get there power from?

Your advise???
That's fairly old equipment by today's standards, but it may well work fine once hooked up and installed... replacing it all will run you between $1500-2000 I reckon. So it's worth a shot at seeing if they power up, and plugging the tranducers in to see if they respond. Does the mast have the vane and anemometer cups in place up top? If so there will be wires below for that too.

You can replace the plug with the paddlewheel sensor.. you'll ship a bit of water but it's a simple operation. Just be ready to make a swift swap, and try not to be alarmed at the amount of water that tries to get in. (you may have a flap to slow it down...)

It was good gear in its day, and doesn't look abused - could even have zero hours on it, I suppose. Worth checking out. Try online for manuals and diagrams. The first 'hit' in this search seems to be the PDF manual for what you've got:
