Gary is absolutely correct. Although I cannot see or feel a
wire exiting
this hose, when I shine a bright light on the hose, I can see a wire

This vent comment was a side comment to the observations I made when
opening and cleaning the fresh water tank's 3 ports. It was a quick and
careless assumption on my part. I apologize for that assumption and
correct the graphic today.

This brings me back to my earlier comment to Eric that the only venting
the water tank is through the floating gauge pipe.

Gary, Boris at Amel told me that the sensors would have to be cut out
the hull. B&G told me they must be installed in matched pairs. At least
know where one of the sensor wires is routed.

Hi all:

The hose in photo number 4 (labeled tank vent), is NOT a tank vent.
It is
a hose that exits at the inboard edge of the the aft locker under the
in the saloon.

If you look closely in the picture, and you can check this on your
boat, you can make out that there is an electrical cable inside the
I asked Olivier about this hose when we took delivery of the boat and
indicated that the hose was there to protect the cable inside, and
cable is the sonic speed indicator sensor/transmitter that is
imbedded in
the leading edge of the stub keel (i.e. the lower aft transducer of
the two
sonic speed transducers). At the forward end of the hose the cable
and traversed starboard to route to the sonic speed computer that is
strapped under the shelf in the forward lower cupboard beside the
side saloon seat.

Olivier, if you see this, can you shed some light on how i t might be
possible (or not possible) to replace the sonic speed sensors (both
in the
stub-keel and the forward hull). It seems many of us have had
failure of
the transducers. Are the sensors in some sort of conduit that allow
to be pulled and replaced?

All the best,
