"Thank you, Peter. I will definitely try your suggestion.  I had checked/cleaned the faucet screen (with no change), but I'd never considered the braided supply lines. I'll try your suggestion and publish the results. -Brendan "

Recommissioning of Electronics

I have identified a couple of instances where some of the electronics required recalibration.I am the second owner of our Ben OC 43, and am seriously considering returning all the electronics to factory default setting, and re-performing a full commissioning process.Does anyone know the distance from the water-line to the depth transducer?  This is the only measurement I don't have, but need to recommission.Again, I have a 2009 Ben OC 43.Regards,-Brendan See More

Cockpit Speakers - Audio Upgrade

Has anyone replaced/upgraded their cockpit speakers?  The grill for one of mine is broken and they sound pretty terrible regardless, so it's time for an upgrade.  I'd prefer to find something that fits the original footprint if possible.I'm open to any suggestions you may have about improving the audio quality both in the cabin and in the cockpit.  Thanks in advance for your help!See More
