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

Giovanni TESTA

I have contacted the main B&G support in Viareggio.
They told me that the neoprene extension is mainly for protection of the transducer.
For now you can sail but you have to keep it cleaned, obviously with great attention.
The technician was working and sailing out of these days there is a lot of work, but he told me that as soon as possible, with the trasducer in his hands, he could check how to re-attach the extension under water..if possible.

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

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.
