We put our new Garmin 7612 in a Navpod at the helm and are happy with it. I wish it had a lower stance and I wish I could adjust the angle of the screen, but I love how protected it is, how much harder it would be to steal it than an open mount, and that I can easily swing it left and right depending upon where I am sitting and viewing it. 

All the best,

Hi Duane

 

Glad to hear you found the cause.

 

Most electronic devices have a water Ingress rating, which means, how much water they can "digest". I have a B&G Zeus 2 at the helm (on the starboard side, behind a window, which can't be opened on the Santorin) and its water Ingress rating is IPX 6 and 7. I dont know what Your Furuno plotter has. But according to the protection it is built one can "stress" it.

 

Here is an IPX list from the web.

 

Best - Daniel

 

IPX0 – This means it’s not water resistant at all. Think of what happens to paper when it gets wet. It’s a mess and your novella is ruined.

IPX1 – This will protect a device from some water drops that are falling vertically on said device. I guess it’s possible for this situation to actually occur but so is winning the lottery. If you or someone you know has won the lottery, sharing is caring.

IPX2 –  This will protect your thingy from some water drops when the device is tilted up to and including 15°. If you have your device at 16°, you are screwed, sorry but there are limits in the world.

IPX3 – Getting better, you can now spray your gear up to 60° from the top of the device. So that’s cool, I guess.

IPX4 – Now we are getting somewhere. This will keep “yo ish chill” from splashing water from any direction. So if you drop some cubes of ice into you scotch and it splashes, there is no need to worry. Well, except for those drops of scotch that didn’t make it into your tummy.

IPX5 – (this is where the super soaker is allowed). Will protect your stuff from water jets at any direction. Spray away kiddo, spray away.

IPX6 – Protects from powerful water jets. So if you modified your super soaker with an air compressor and an aftermarket tip, your stuff is still safe.

Everything after this is now water proof.

IPX7 – Full splashdown accepted captain. If you drop your device in water up to 3 feet (1 meter but this is ‘Merica and we don’t do the metric system. USA USA USA) your device is still going to work.

IPX8 – You can protect your device in water over 3 feet. This is for your stuff at the bottom of a pool, lake, or even a super deep public hot tub. What’s up with that one couple that never gets out of the hot tub?

I have a Furuno, same locale. I’ve had some issues too. Not to add fuel to your misery after the fact but corrosion X can help in the future with this. I spray this stuff everywhere and liberally. It really seems to help. Bill R’s great suggestion. 

Also no weather cover on the RS-232. Installed by Pochon in Martinique. I was also disappointed. 

I’ll be in your shoes in time. Sorry you have to deal with that!

Note the "water damage" item.  This unit was installed by Amel without any kind of weather cover so I expect that it should have been fine in its location.  If you leave the windshield up, and it starts to rain the unit will get somewhat wet.  Even washing the boat carefully some water may splash on the unit.  So getting wet should not have been too much of a problem.  Maybe past owners hosed the unit down while washing the boat.  Definitely not bullet proof.

The replacement unit was from Ebay and had remains of sealant on it where the old weather cover had been removed.  So it was an outdoor unit as well.  

Amazingly enough the refer started to work again shortly after I posted the note.  I used the hi/low speed button and it came on, so maybe that switch is bad.

Furuno is famous for ruggedness and reliability. Look at fishing boats, what do they have? Furuno.
Elyse has had Furuno plotters since 2004...so that's 14 years...without any problems at all. Seems very odd that you have 2 plotters die in one year, and other problems. Seems to me that it may not be a Furuno problem but a boat wiring problem you have.

Re: Maretron Electronics experience?

Duane,

I can not comment specifically on the Maretron brand other than by reputation (good!), but I have a lot of experience with NMEA2k network.  It really is plug and play.  Mostly...  

Raymarine Seatalk NG is one special case. They use the NMEA2k protocol, but with their own proprietary connectors.  We integrated a Raymarine AIS system into our mostly B&G network without a problem just by using an adapter cable.  Simrad does the same thing with different connectors. Adapters are available for all.  

The good news is that the cables are really simple, just four wires, two for power, two for data.  You can splice them without a problem if you end up with connector frustration.

Other than occasional issues with connector matching, I have never had any problem with instruments talking to each other over the NMEA2k network.

If you are thinking about the WS0100, you might want to seriously look at the line of ultrasonic wind sensors from Airmar.  Some of them are designed more with sailboats in mind.  They understand heel, and true vs apparent wind, and other such details.  I used one with a B&G based NMEA2k network on my old boat and was very happy with it. Some of these also include gyro compass data so you can use them to supply heading data to your AP.  All over the NMEA2k network. In my past experience Airmar's tech support is excellent, and worth a call to help you decide between the many models available.

Along with wind, temperature, compass, gyro rate, barometric pressure, pitch, roll, yaw, GPS data, some of them incorporate a dew point sensor.  That has a reputation as a bit fragile, so might not be worth spending extra on unless you are a real weather geek!

Recently on a trip from Georgia to West Palm Beach FL our Furuno plotter at the helm died, this is the second Furuno helm plotter to die in a year.  The Furuno at the nav desk has taken to going "blip" and resetting itself.  Neither of these things inspires any confidence so we've decided to bite the bullet and replace much of the electronics.

In looking at what's available I liked the Maretron DST110 Triducer for depth, speed and temperature.  I'm not sure if it will fit yet, but Delos plugged it into their existing thru-hull.  I also like the Maretron masthead unit WS0100 for being solid state, no moving parts, and being a weather station to boot (air temp, humidity and barometric pressure).  Both of these are NMEA 2000.  I know there's been a lot of discussion on the speed/depth sensors, but those discussions were based on keeping the Hydra, I'm going to ditch it in favor of a new system.

I wonder, is NMEA 2000 really going to let me plug in different manufacturers and be successful? I understand it's the stated goal, but is it practical?  If I were to go with a B&G Zeus 3 (and 4G radar) and the above Maretron sensors (and maybe the small Maretron multi-function displays to replace the B&G) it should work, right?

I plan on keeping the Raymarine Autopilot (S3G) system and using a multiplexer/converter to port it over to the chartplotter.  By keeping the S3G I should be able to use the Raymarine Fluxgate Compass and rudder sensor for the whole system (right?).  

My Raymarine VHF died on this same trip, so instead of trying to save it, I'm going to replace it with a NMEA 2000 black box.  The B&G V90 does both VHF and AIS, one unit, one aerial.

I'd appreciate any experience with the Maretron instruments, and whether the mix and match approach seems reasonable.  Any hints or suggestions are also welcome.

   I think that you are right about  ventilation in the chain locker helping to reducing the growth of the the mold in the chain locker.  If  the moisture content of wood is kept below 20-28% (depending on species and whether rot is established already) it won’t rot either.  It is nice to know that people like yourself are doing what they can to take good care of these amazing boats.

Hello James,

You make an excellent point in advising that the chain locker door be opened when the boat is in a marina.  I try to always open the door in a marina and when the boat is out of the water.  The  open door allows a nice air flow through the locker and makes a noticeable difference in the growth of mold and dampness of the wood.
