knot meter paddle thingy
Boat came with Autohelm 4000 / ST-50 system everything works great except the speed indicator and, consequently, the autohelms ability to track on the wind instead of a set heading.
All my local boat advisor's told me about pulling the paddle wheel out from the inside and clearing the debris.
Mine does not seem to come out from the inside.
There is collar threaded over a rubber gasket but there doesn't seem to be any way to get the thing into the boat. It appears to only go out.
The designers of the Nich 31 were paranoid about keeping sea water in the sea. The hatches open aft, the fresh water tank fill from inside the cabin.
What am I missing?
In over my head?
First Boat, a well-equipped 1977 Camper Nicholson 31
What is all this stuff and how does it work?
