"Jumped on the boat the other day and my Maxspeed thruster would not work at all. The unit turns on and the light stays on, but pushing either button has no effect. I had the control board go two years ago, but the symptoms were different, thruster…"
Not sure this is the right forum for this, but... I have a roller furling mainsail off my 2008 B43 that was used for one season, it is like new. Looking to sell it and make room. Let me know if anyone is interested.DaveSee More
"It's under the seat with the house batteries just inside the aft cabin. There are a number of fuses in that area but it should be an open type that you push into the clips on each end. There are two next to each other located to the left of the…"
Uncovered the boat yesterday, getting her ready to go, while checking things out I noticed that the Rule bilge pump was inop. Checked with the meter and no power. Can someone please tell me where the fuse for this pump is??Thanks DaveSee More
I had the same issue last season, it ended up being the micro switches in the remote. Tried to find a replacement switch to no avail. Check the switch with a meter to see if they are ok. If they are bad, give the windlass manufacturer a call,…"

If it's an ais receive only,…"

a) installed 10-180 ohms sensors in the 2 water tanks
"Sam, wow that's some serious blockage. Like James we too flush with fresh water. And like James haven't had any issues with hose blockage (that we know of) or odor. Actually we find our biggest source of odor in the heads come from the…"
"Thanks for reply. Salt water + urine = calcification along with dead seacritter buildup/blockage equates to blocked pipes!
Even though our B43 has never flushed seawater I maintained original equipment in place but totally disconnected (thru hull…"
"James, we use saltwater when offshore. Otherwise we use a freshwater flush. The design is such that whatever is in the line sits between the top of the holding tank and the joker valve. Over time, stuff builds up. Amazed at what a human can produce!…"
