buzz from the bow

OK, another strange one.When all is quiet I her an intermitent buzz emanating from somewhere forward, It goes "buzz, buzz" then quiet. Happens at about forty second intervals (but not consistent). Sounds like an electrical sound, but am very uncertain.The boat is a 2008 43, with thruster and windlass. It sounds like it comes from the windlass area or the port side in the vberth.The admiral is developing a tick.Ideas?SamLonghawkSee More
