Re: What are these things?

I thank you for the reply, Mechsmith. I'm trying to process the idea that you're putting forward, but am unable to picture how the sensor or sensing apparatus would meet the water.

Re: What are these things?

Thank you, ReefMagnet. I did not find the plug on the boat, so ended up ordering one online to try and get this thing taken care of asap. Research appears to have narrowed it down to an RS...

Re: What are these things?

Re: What are these things?

I'm trying envision what...

Re: What are these things?

Can anyone say if it could be likely that it's leaking, as there is occasionally a small amount of water around it? I had thought it was due to its proximity to the bilge, but is it possible that it...

Re: What are these things?

Do you mean if she was out of the water? (sorry if dumb question, as I say am newbie to sailing)

Re: What are these things?

Thanks for the reply, ReefMagnet. I suppose the idea that it's a transducer would suggest that it is unrelated to the bilge? Do you think? Any other thoughts you have on it, I'd really appreciate...
