Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Two questions concerning the Hydra 2000 and the 50 Amp charger

Thanks Bill !

My wife and I are on the way to the Netherlands. There we will have the standing rigging renewed plus a lot of other maintenance and replacements. This boat was neglected for a few years, but passed a survey by Olivier Beaute. 

Regarding the wind instrument I just want to check the connections on the Hydra computer. 

It is terrible weather here in Denmark. Today stayed at anchor in a fjord because of heavy rain and fierce winds.  Tomorrow theweather will be a bit better and we will continue our trip.

Best regards,

The wind meter is not working properly (all the time indicating between 30 and 120 degrees from starboard). The manual of the Hydra 2000 is in French and the Amel manual is not indicating where the computer and the contact box is installed. Can anyone help me out?

The other question is about the big battery charger which is not working. Is there a fuse or switch behind the cover? It is a Christec charger.
