NMEA 2000 questions

Hi All,

I hooked up my Lowrance HDS-5, and an external GPS last week before I read you must have 2 dead ends on your NMEA bus. OK, I could hook it up that way, but I ended up with only 1 dead end....

As I was pressure washing the boat last week, I noticed a fair number of little "dings" (1/16-1/8") chips (probably a dozen around the whole hull).

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Any Solo Sailors?
