Re: AIS Unit for Raymarine Chartplotter System

Help me out SV. How am I losing VHF range? Where exactly is the loss happening?

Again, late model splitters.

Re: AIS Unit for Raymarine Chartplotter System

Exactly. Strong preference for a high mount AIS antenna for purpose of a MOB1 bobbing at sea level.

We can't mount dual antennas top of a single mast. So splitter it will be. And it will not be...

Re: AIS Unit for Raymarine Chartplotter System

Specifically and technically ... why?

At least some of the latest crop of splitters include amps and prioritize the VHF for transmit.

I'm looking to outfit an offshore racer with masthead...

Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

I've probably done several 100 laps around the track in a Scot. Mostly in open water.

The older boats do get soft. All things being equal, the newer boats are faster. And the wire / winch...

Re: B&G v Garmin (GPS/Radar)

2 years now with the Zeus Touch. A long list of issues particularly with route management and navigation. Dissappointing and little progress from B&G. PM me and Ill send the list.

Re: B&G Zeus Chartplotter Question

Sail is well under 5% of Garmin's total revenue. I'm not making that bet. And the latest Garmin sail products IMO look more like attempts to catch up with long available B&G SailSteer, StartLine,...

Re: chart plotter performance without external antenna?

10 Hz GPS is the new 1 Hz. A lot of the newer GPS kit supports 10 Hz updates. Smoother updating of heading-up displays, better for autopilots in high dynamic conditions, etc.

Re: Will a Airmar DST800 transducer fit in a Navman thru hull?

Our fleet races in these conditions all the time. The FS will fly downwind in 15 knots plus. Baring the occasional flip :D.

Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

- the halyards are wire (meat hooks).
- they often don't wrap evenly around the drums, often overriding.
- the handle is known to snap.
- the handle often gets lost (needs to be tethered somehow)....
