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

Well, firstly "numerous issues" is a bit disingenuous, as you've had the same issue a couple of times, which is that the flap allows in water while the transducer is removed and the plug installed. ...

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

No, I'm afraid they aren't standard. Even if, by some miracle, the DST800 has the right thread AND diameter, the length also has to be spot-on to put the transducer flush with the hull.

There's...

Re: CL 16 questions

PS, as far as inspection goes, the most common issue is distortion of the hull, caused by improper trailering. The weight of the boat should sit on its keel on the rollers, and then be lightly...

Re: Problem about Cockpit sole repair

If you want to know the extent of the rotted core, you can drill holes into the core, at various distances from the edge of the hole. Doing it from underneath would be neater if you can. I just did...

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

We really have no idea what the OP received, as he hasn't replied to my question about what the labelling is on the cable EXACTLY.

All we know is that it says SAE on it, and it's 50V, 80C. If any...

Actually on my pole it attaches to the end of the fixed...

Re: House bank

If you need more power, the idea of adding another battery so you have a house bank with two 27s, and a starting battery, seems eminently sensible to me. That is what I have done.

Re: Deck fresh Water leak

If you seal the hole below, and water is still leaking into the joint, it could be getting into the core of the deck. Leaks should always be sealed above, never below, the deck, for this reason.

Re: chart plotter performance without external antenna?

Yes I agree, for radar overlay you need a heading sensor. If you've already got a Lowrance HDS plotter, something like the Lowrance Point 1 is a no-brainer, combining as it does a heading sensor, GPS...

Re: Simrad WP32 / Garmin 400s GPS

I have a Simnet network connected into the NMEA 2000 one. The Simnet is connected as a drop from the NMEA 2000 backbone, using an NMEA 2000 to Simnet cable. It's not quite to code, as it were, but it...

Re: Simrad WP32 / Garmin 400s GPS

It looks like the Garmin doesn't have NMEA 2000, so you'll have to go down the NMEA 0183 route. If nothing is connected to the GPSs 0183 interface you can connect directly. To connect multiple...

I'd have to take issue with the comment about energy lost. If you're applying a lot of force to the rudder, that means it's doing a lot of work on the water flow, which in turn means a lot of drag.
