Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM chain counter

Ian Shepherd <ocean53@...>

Hello Mike,

I have a problem with my chain counter too. When at anchor, the reading
slowly counts down, though never up. I have contacted Pochon and they say
that it is a fault in the circuit board in the display meter. They say they
can fix it if I send the meter back to them. I would say that your problem
is also on this board.

My problem seems to be worse in high temperatures. I wonder where you are
located right now? Also, can you tell me if the two 13 mm holes in the side
of the sensor that is bolted to the left hand side of the windlass are
uncovered, or are they fitted with rubber plugs to keep moisture out? Mine
are open, which seems a a little odd.

When turned on, our chain counter politely counts down, or up after pressing
the Z, in apparent seconds, completely unaffected by what may be happening
at the windlass. Have others experienced this and what is the culprit?
