Re: [Amel] B&G Sonic Speed sensor and "the barnacle"

Bill in the forward cabin there is a through hull sending unit for the speed sensor
You can remove it ( be sure to have a wood plug to fit the hole) and replace the unit. I simply don't know If the "seawater" sensor comes out with it. I seem to "think and that is always dangerous" it does. The other question can you get the needed replacement parts locally I think Amel is closed for summer French holidays. I will see if I can find a solution here in Annapolis. There
Must be a BG dealer here that knows.

It is the upper hull-mount sensor i.e the rear facing sensor.

Bill this looks like the lens and and cover. Can or will you please confirm that your photo is from the "upper" hull mount sensor and not the keel unit. I think if it is the upper you can access-it from the forward cabin. If it is the keel you most likely have a big job on your hands. We have an SM and getting to the keel unit would be a major pain to the point that I'd consider putting in a new speed and water temp unit in place of the forward sensor. I know it's not Amel but given your current location well we all do what we have to do. In any case we would NOT go to sea w/0 a fix or at least fast expoxie on the hole and deal with later. Good luck.
