I replaced both bushing/bearings...1 for direction and 1 for speed.

Hi Colin,

There is some useful information in the files section from Bill. Also
check out the B & G website:

Your masthead unit is probably the 213 and I have you a file for
checking this from the junction box located behind the panel abeam the
forward heads where the main mast wiring is located.

Best wishes

Subject: [Amel] B & G Hydra 2000 - Wind Speed stopped working?

We have Hydra 2000 system and our B&G Wind Speed has suddenly stopped
working this week. Wind direction etc is reading fine but no speed suddenly
on last outing. Our neighbour in the marina had reported that birds have
recently taken a liking to perching on top of our mast instruments so this
is possibly what caused the problem, however wind direction instrument is
still fine and I can see the wind speed spinning correctly on the mast top.
Any ideas before we go down the replacement route?
