Re: How should True Wind be determined?

I agree. I did a little example featuring an extreme case of a 4.5kn current, say Hell Gate. There is quite a difference , especially with angle, more on that in a minute. I've always thought of...

How should True Wind be determined?

I have Simrad NSS's. Until recently I wasn't sure how they determined True Wind. Were they using GPS SOG or the Boat Triducer Speed? Well it turns out after having a fouled paddle wheel on the...

Re: Boom brake advice

I just bought the Gybed Easy during the Boat Show, but have not tried it yet. I'm short a clutch, but I suppose I could use my Spinnaker Tack clutch in the interim. I'll need to figure out how to...

Re: Mermaid Condensator Alternative

Thanks for the info. I thought about just routing the drain directly to the bilge pump, which is literally just next to the AC Unit on the opposite side of a stringer.

Re: Opinions needed on Marine Air (Dometic)

My own limited experience has only left me a bit frustrated with the Q Logic Controllers. They do not perform well IMHO as it relates to Temp Control, even after correcting some poorly located temp...

Re: Oil stained Sunbrella???

I have a similar problem with a seat cushion, I foolishly rested the outboard from the tender on it for a few minutes and it leaked oil. I tried Lestoil and Dish Soap, but no satisfaction. I may...

Mermaid Condensator Alternative

I've been struggling with the Pacific Condensate Pumps in my boat being prone to failure. It was suggested to me to look at the Mermaid Condensator, but I thought the price was a bit outrageous for...

Re: Celestial Navigation Book--Susan P Howell

I have the book and am working through it myself. Did you figure it out? I left mine on the boat but am heading down this weekend. I can give it a go.

Re: AIS Receiver installation

Also your unit has a built in Power Divider/Splitter for connecting to a VHF Radio and a single Antenna. I'm curious as to how well that functions.

My Simrad stuff came from the factory...

Re: AIS Receiver installation

You don't mention whether you have tried connecting it to a Chart Plotter yet. I take it you might be bench testing this? Connecting it to a Chart Plotter via the Nav Out Data connection would be a...

Re: Sailing ... transmission in reverse?

I used to slip my boat into gear to stop the annoying whirring noise, but only for a few months of ownership, then I installed a Flexofold over the winter.

Many years ago I worked for a company...

Re: Cristec Battery Charger Default vs AGM Caution

Yes Off-Off-On are what my switches are set to. That is the correct setting in the manual for Classic Sealed Batteries.

It should be to set Off-On-Off for AGM as per the manual just as follows:...

Cristec Battery Charger Default vs AGM Caution

Re: Change MMSI from domestic to International?

Agreed. If my device allows me to enter the MMSI number a second time and it is a valid number assigned by the FCC to me, how is that really a problem, and who is really going to care. I think the...

Testing AGM Batteries

I could use some help understanding how to properly test an AGM battery.

Can you test an AGM battery with a hand held capacitive Battery Tester and expect to to get reasonable results.

Re: Bird nests in the boom

I used Duct Tape this spring, but I would like something more elegant. The sponge or foam idea sounds good. Ideally something that doesn't absorb water. I fitted some memory foam mattresses for my...

Re: How often to change impeller?

Re: Electrical problem, possibly reverse polarity issue

Sounds like you have a dead short. You've probably crossed up the hot leg with a neutral leg. As everyone else has indicated have someone look at it before you become a youtube video.

Re: Yanmar 4JH4AE catastrophic breakdown experience

I'm struggling with this also. In the first post you indicate a valve seat. Now it's valve springs, and rusty ones? And all failed? Did you see the corroded valve springs.
