Re: Recommendations for Battery Monitor

Having multiple meters that you ARE SURE are reading correctly is a real help. A lot of hand-held DVMs have not-so-good accuracy. Maybe you don't need my Fluke's 0.09% but you need better than the...

Re: Checkout my new blog on "SmartBoats"

You might take a look at the bilge pump monitor from Celectron in the UK. At GBP179 it's about the same price and seems a whole lot more capable.

Re: 12v voltage regulator

If you are slightly handy assembling electronics, you can by a Micrel 28000(many different versions with slightly different numbers) low-dropout regulator for 12 volts output. It requires only a...

Re: Raytheon rl70 display problem

I had a similar system until my last lightning strike. I'm not sure what you mean by master and slave. From your description, I assume that you have the radar dome connected to one unit and the chart...

Re: Stainless -vs- Aluminum Cookware

The most used set of cookware on the boat is a set of 40 years old cast aluminum pans bought in Costa Rica in 1980. The look exactly like my Mom's old cast iron cookware, but a some kind of aluminum...

Re: Troubleshooting Hella Turbo 12V Fan

The part that has failed in my several Hella fans is the small, slide-on connectors where the power wire attaches to the printed-circuit board. Soldering the wires directly to the board is a simple...

Re: Raymarine ST 60 Questions

Check out the ITC-5 from Raymarine. It allows you to connect the existing wind, depth, speed, compass? transducers directly to the ITC-5 and outputs SeatalkNG. I've seen it used a couple of times but...

Re: VHF antenna issues?

I was guessing, without any evidence, that a shield that had corroded open would show up via TDR. As for corrosion that hadn't completely removed the shield I would expect a less accurate diagnosis...

Re: Replacing Engine Driven Water pump with electric

I've seen it done especially on gensets or where there were originally multiple pumps. There's no reason it won't work in theory. Most electric pumps are not designed to be run continuously. Those...

Re: VHF antenna issues?

You're right on about the corroded shield. I've only seen it once, but I wasted more than enough time actually finding the problem to have bought a Fluke TDR meter about 3 times. :)

Re: battery twist switch accident

You don't have to be a two-year-old. My battery switches were located conveniently to the nav station so that when you walked past you could rub against them. If you hit them wrong, they would turn...

Re: VHF antenna issues?

In over 50 years of working on radios, the biggest problem by far is that the connectors on the coaxial cable are badly installed. The gold-plated twist-on connectors are worthless in a salt-water...

Re: Seatalk Cross Interference

Re: Identify this sealant!

A note on Dow Corning 795 caulk. It is great stuff, the only caulk that has held up on my aluminum frame/acrylic hatches. Make sure you pay attention to the expiration date. I had a tube that was 8...

I had a Heart 2500 on my boat when I bought it in 1998 which I thankfully got rid of years ago. It would NEVER charge 500AH of batteries at more than 68 amps using a 4.4kw Westerbeke genset. And to...
