    Jon--I'm on a 12m berth at westhaven as is Zambezi (both 1220's )
  3. Entries close on the 1st July --make sure you're in to participate
  4. Interesting --it would be good to hear what Westhaven or other marina management have to say about this ---if these regulations are in fact not able to be overridden (or haven't been rewritten ) then the current interpretation about grey water/liveaboard/holding tanks are not correct. Does this mean that if you have an electrasan (or is it raritan), which nukes all physical waste and has a US FDA rating for discharge quality, fitted and used, there is no legitimate reason for a marina operator to decline a request to liveaboard (in a marina)on the basis of water discharges (Grey or black ). Could change a few decisions ?
  5. Thank IT /Frank--will be in touch when you get back from foreign places
  6. Hi everyone, Looking for practical ideas, if what l want to do can be done . When I bought Duty free, Farr 1220, it had Raymarine gear on it ---I was given the opportunity to get some B&G gear (Zeus Touch 7/Triton display). The current Auto helm is an Raytheon ST6000plus , works really well and l am pleased with it, but it was not and is not integrated with the wind gear . I am sufficiently aware that they have different operating systems (if that's the correct word ) but my question is ----Can l integrate my B&G wind gear with the Raymarine/Raytheon ST6000--if so , how so. The second question -----With putting in the new B&G gear(integrate depth/log ) transducer we chose not to take out the older ST60 Depth instruments/transducer --for the love of me ,I just cannot figure out the B&G fishfinder option and make it produce anything l can understand (no doubt operator error )----The question is whether the ST 60 transducer can be utilised as a fish finder , if l buy a new/second hand display/head unit which is compatible. Its currently used as a back up depth sounder which l don't need, so was hoping to get some use out of the transducer/wiring that's in place --I have tried to get an answer from L&B on their customer enquiry line but have had no reply. Looking for any advice /ideas/suggestions from you very knowledgeable people . Thanks Andrew
