GPS receiver upgrade

The original Raymarine 125 gps failed on my 2008 Oceanis 40.  Based on research, I’m trying to install a RS150 GPS receiver.  The 150 uses Seatalk NG vs. the boat’s antiquated Seatalk 1.  Not exactly sure how to tie the new GPS into the network.  I purchased a Seatalk1 to Seatalk NG converter block.  The Raymarine Tech on the Raymarine Tech forum has advised me to run a independent power feed to the converter block.  That’s about as far as I have gotten, waiting to get a call back from…See More

Mike Brown replied to Cam Whitlock's discussion Freezer problem in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Cam, keeping the coils clean is essential to max efficiency for both units. For whatever reason our 43 required constant upkeep to keep the coils clean. The wood grates are glued on but can be removed if you work at it using a tool that won't…"

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.katekwame@yahoo.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.

I think the check valve is malfunctioning but I haven’t been able to locate it. Can anyone help please. Many thanks.See More

Power Cord change

After 10+ years it was time to change the 50A 125/250 V shore power splitter. It had served well but it was showing signs of degradation due to heat. I also had previously changed out the boat side power inlet connectors to the SmartPlug type, changing out the fittings on the shore power cable to match. I absolutely love the SmartPlug system. No twisting, sure connection, much more surface area, etc.I decided to buy short factory made 25 FT Smartplug power cords as I normally berth stern-to and…See More
