Sailed upwind this summer in a 25-30knots wind, at 50° real wind, much

Wilfrid,

Thanks for the info. Sounds like a very good idea to me to increase options
of point of sail and to save wear on the genoa. Glad to hear it can be
easily rigged on this model boat.

Maramou, freshwater under fwd head

Mike Gough <mahili_au@...>
 

G,day all,

We own Maramou # 147, and I wish to warn owners who may face this problem: after heavy rain we find fresh water in the hold under the fwd head. (Still unable find where it leaks in). The consequence of this leak can be disasterous. I found fresh water to have caused dry rot to form at the base of the compression post and centre bulkhead. It was a huge job to cut out affected areas and replace! If anyone has an idea of where to look for the leak I would be appreciative.

Regards,
MIke Gough

Raytheon/Raymarine Sensors

marc audeoud <audeoud@...>
 

beeing new to the group, i don't know if the topic has been talked
through already...

i heard, that it is not good to wire / install certain sensor cables
from raymarine in paralell to the course computer of the autopilot
(ST6000 compass/flux gate) or the corresponding instruments (ST60 speed
/ depth / wind).

does anybody know something about it?

NMEA 0183

Dear Richard, Gottschalk and John

Thanks to all of you for helping us, to connect NMEA of the B&G
Hydra 2 to the other instruments. Once you know how it works, it is
easy:

As a resume of all your infos: The NMEA FFD is used to connect the
Hydra 2 system to a NMEA device. To do this, the NMEA FFD has a 9
core cable of which brown, blue and violet are used for NMEA.

NMEA Input Signal - Brown
NMEA Input Return - Blue

NMEA Output Signal - Violet
NMEA Output Ground - Black

Safe sailing to all of you
und immer eine handbreit Wasser unter dem Kiel :-)

Re: NMEA 183 Connection

John McDougall <j.c.mcdougall@...>
 

I connected the ST7000 to the B&G in order to display true wind info
on the B&G using heading info from the Raytheon fluxgate compass.
This may not be want you want but see message 155 which contained
advice from B&G Technical Dept and was very
helpful.

Hallo Hanspeter,
die Formatierung der letzten mail hat nicht geklappt, daher diesmal die Belegung im Anhang!!

ist eigentlich kein Problem.
Ich bin leider nicht an bord und erinnere mich nicht genau.
Es gibt entweder beim FFD oder am "Computer" einen Ausgang mit NMEA
Ich glaube es war am FFD ?? ;-))
In der Betriebsanleitung ist das ersichtlich.
Ich habe alles (GPS, Radar, Autopilot Bedienteil, Autopilot Raytheon Computer, B&G und Notebook über einen Multiplexer vernetzt.
Das kann aber etwas Probleme machen und die Übertragungsrate wegen der vielen Daten ausbremsen.
Hier in der Anlage die Belegung des FFD. damit sollte eigentlich alles klar sein (im Anhang).

Es macht natürlich keinen Sinn die Daten eines Gerätes, die im Multiplexer mit anderen zusammengefügt werden wieder an das Ausgangsgerät zu schicken!!
Da muß man ev. am Multiplexer die Daten-Eingänge und Ausgänge umprogrammieren, so daß nur die richtigen Daten zum jeweiligen Gerät kommen.
Oder man nimmt eine direkte Verbindung vom sendenden Gerät zum empfangenden unter Umgehung des Multiplexers. An einem Datenausgang können sicher zwei bis drei Geräte angeschlossen werden.

Achtung (zur Installation):

a.. Ein NMEA-FFD kann an jedem Punkt des System-Network-Datenbus angeschlossen werden. Sinnvoller Weise montiert man dieses jedoch immer in der Nähe des über NMEA zu verbindenden Gerätes (GPS), um die Kabelwege der NMEA-Datenleitung zu minimieren.
a.. Es können mehrere NMEA-FFD"s in einem System betrieben werden; dieses bietet dann die Möglichkeit, verschiedene weitere NMEA-fähige Geräte einzuspielen (Decca, Loran usw.).
a.. NMEA-FFD's können in der Kombination mit allen anderen Anzeigentypen betrieben werden (Standard FFD, Jumboanzeigen, Halcyon-Display, Pilot-FFD).
Abgeschirmte Kabel:

a.. Es werden abgeschirmte Kabel bei den Geräten benutzt, um ungewollte Einstörungen in das System zu verhindern (EMC Vorschrift) und diese müssen nach diesen Anleitungen auch installiert werden!
a.. Die Abschirmungen von NMEA-Kabeln müssen auf der "sendenden"-Seite aufgelegt werden!
a.. Die Abschirmung des NMEA-Ausgangskabels sollte in der Anschlussbox mit den anderen Abschirmungen verbunden werden.
Abschlusswiderstand (Network-Terminator):

Sollte das NMEA-FFD das letzte in der Datenbus-Leitung installierte Display sein, so ist hier der Abschlusswiderstand zwischen die weisse und die grüne Ader zu setzen! Nur zwei Widerstände pro System werden benötigt!

Ich habe das auf deutsch geschrieben ist vielleicht für beide leichter.

Hi Richard
Thanks for your fast answer. Unfortunately there is a misunderstanding (my English is too bad sorry). We have a NMEA multiplexer, but we can't find out where the connection is on the side of the B&G Hydra2. Do we need to add a component to the B&G or is there a possibility to connect the wire for the NMEA out + Ground directly to the B&G processor unit?.
Regards
Hanspeter

You can't just connect two differing NMEA streams together nad hope that the
receiving instrument will correctly interpret them. You need to connect them
to an NMEA multiplexer first.

SM for Sale

PFM53 <pfm53@...>
 

Hi all

I had announced my intent to sell "PFM" (SM #133) awhile back, and I received
several inquiries. But with work, travel, and a home remodel, I did not have
the information together. I have finally completed putting the information
together. She is currently lying in Trinidad, and is definitely FOR SALE.

You can see pictures and get the information on the web site
WWW.ECOCONUTINC.COM.

Hello again,
This subject is being flogged to death! The contact glue is probably
Evostik. Used to fix laminates to kitchen work tops etc. Much loved by
teenage gluesniffers. Obviously it makes a good emergency solution. Perhaps
that product used to stop fanbelts slipping would also work.
I suggested kevlar rope as it worked when we had a problem in Turkey. It
had to be sent in from Istambul to the huge marina at Marmaris and even
then only 12mm. was available. Since then I have bought a replacement in
the UK to keep as a spare, it is 10mm. Spectra which is even more stretch
resistant than kevlar and I had the chandlery put an eye splice in one end,
incidentally the ends are melted neatly so perhaps it is similar to the New
England product which is nt available in Europe.
Unfortunately different manufacturers have different names for products
which are probably virtually identical.

Regards from Sicily, Anne and
John
