Re: Mystery knotmeter
Nah, don't do that. That graveyard is full already!
You have some choices:
If you remove it from the boat then plug the instrument hole with a thin
piece of plywood sealed to the bulkhead. I this affects your sailing season
wait till winter. If you are one of those lucky guys who can sail year round
then I don't want to see till the winter!
- Find an electronics nerd to help you.
- Send it to a repair shop. These don't exist at the end of every block
so you have to do some creative thinking to find one.
- Decide to buy a GPS and mount it in the cockpit somewhere. Actually
this gives you more options than just speed. Unfortunately it more difficult
to read from the back of the cockpit. You should fabricate a swing out bracket
so it doesn't fall overboard.
- Send it to me and I'll have a look at it but there is no guarantee
that I'll get it working. I would require both the transducer and the instrument
head. So would the repair shop.
(Always stay curious)
