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...

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.

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...

I'm in the same situation. I have a Domesic MMSI. I do at some point plan to cruise the Caribbean. I've heard differing stories on devices. Some may allow you to change it ONCE, others need to be...

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: The impossible happened

The Ronstan is an aluminum headboard shackle that I believe has been discontinued. The Schaefer looks a piece, but of course expensive. Decisions, decisions. I'm going to unfurl and lower my Genoa...

Re: How often to change impeller?

I plan on taking the Yanmar training, but one thing I was told is that they recommend removing the impeller for winter storage so that it doesn't take a set. I'd be curious to hear if others have...

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.

Main ELCI/GFCI tripping

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.

Re: Good Gawd, I'll fix it myself

As you are finding, the carb is very often the problem. Leaving fuel in it for extended periods always ends badly. I recently got a great deal on a Yamaha F2.5, but alas it had a shifter shaft that...

Re: DIY Compass Calibration

Yes that's exactly what I thought. 9000lb keel, 1000lb engine, 600lb generator, autopilot, electronics, etc. Factory cal would be meaningless.

Seagull IV Water Filter - why so expensive?
