Re: Speed sensor rubber cap
I was thinking of using a sealant that would set under water. Any recommendation for the sealant? I may have something on board. I have to check. I do have some epoxy that will set under water. May be just some on the outside edge, so it creates an edge to prevent the cap from falling off. Now I’m thinking maybe a certain amount of growth, is a good thing.

I had exactly the same issue. My sonic speed stopped working. I dove and found that I had one big barnacle on the rubber cap When I pulled on the barnacle the cap came off.
Amel told me to reattach it with silicone sealant on the edges.
I didn't haulout to do that and waited for about 6 months for a scheduled haul out. I replaced the cap, but Sonic Speed never worked.
