Re: Sonic Speed system on an Amel 54

Hi Arno, Alan, Mohammad,

I purchased my Amel 54 in 2013, she is on of the last production year from summer 2010. in 2015 the Sonic Speed System showed more and more failures (typical way of coming to end of life). Spares were not available anymore. Upon recommendation of Amel and the specialists in La Rochelle I replaced it with the Ultrasonic System in 2016 or 2017. See https://www.nke-marine-electronics.com/?s=ultrasonic 
You have to make a new hole in the hull. I have installed it close to the Compass of the Autopilot in the locker in frint of the berth in the front cabin. The system works well. Have had no prpoblems since then.
Best regards

Alexander
