- question -

just bought a 1979 Islander 30 - and notices this 'electrical' box - looks like a old EQ from a radio.

The 4-5 turn dials ( knobs ) are labeled - night lighting, digital lighting.

What exactly is this, and what does it do?
it is labels as IMI - COMBI.

Well here is another story...

Remember the IMBI Combi system I told you guys about?
Remember the wiring associated with the 'missing' parts that I was contemplating cutting and throwing away ( because the company went out of business in the early 80's ? ).

and remember the 'gaping hole' in the enclosure above the wheel ?

PREPARE YOURSELF.........

I went to a 'yard sale' for boats.. some random boating stuff put on by the marina and came upon this 'thing' that looked like it would fit the enclosure, that had the words IMBI on it.... Depth finder and speed gauge..

$ 10.00

Went to the boat, plugged in the serial cord, and placed it into the perfectly shaped enclosure... flipped the nav breaker.. and waaalaaa - IT WORKS.

What are the chances I would find this ?????? Please see member galleries....
