  2. Buy something like a Laser, spend a summer sailing off the beach, you will learn heaps.....an get a bit wet.
  3. Thanks guys, the victron was the one I was biasing too.
  4. I asked a rigger that just a couple of weeks an he said 'use knots'.
  5. Hi Looking at the collection of battery monitoring kit out there. Firstly do they offer much more than a good voltmeter and an understanding of what is a good, bad or ugly value? I have a analogy meter that you can guess the last 0.3-0.4 volts or there about. Also have a simple 2 battery system, start and house, charged by the alternator. As I have hole on the electric panel the Victron, Master Volt and Enerdrive units look a simple solution as they should go in the existing hole or do I just go for good digital meter to replace the analogy one. Then there is the BEP DC monitor
  6. Hasn't been as bad as forecast down here: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/power-cut-to-2000-coromandel-homes-as-hurricane-force-rain-and-wind-lash-north-island/EJ7PBYCD6NCDHCRWFRNJPUTCT4/

  10. I've sailed on one doing numerous Coatal Classics, Auckland 2 TGA, Round NorthIsland and lots of delivers, great boats.
  11. Marine shops pump them up when you buy, probably do a top up if asked.
  12. 11 on a 8.5m boat is a lot?
  13. Thanks for the feedback, your on my page, is this a cost effective method to get those three primary data.
  14. I have a basic network with 2 displays, why not use them , I don't see size matters. I'm blind now except for a audio alarm.
  15. Things came to a rapid holt after starting up...
  16. Hi Many of us now have NEMA2000 displays but 20-30 yr old motors, with little monitoring beyond the control panel. That is no NEMA2000 output. Has anyone experience with the units available from Aliexpress, see picture. It appears one maybe able to get rpm, oil pressure and temperature, plus tanks onto a network. Are there other options, I'm aware of Actisense EMU. Thanks
  17. Maybe some more detail of the unit on your boat? I had a similar experience backing out of a marina berth in Havlock, collected two launches an a pile in the process. Not a nice feeling! Turned out to be a cable clamp, bracket that had come free from a mount on a bulkhead next the the motor. Allowed the cable to bend without moving the lever on the gearbox. Nothing to do with lever in cockpit.

  23. That's sad. Worked with him when we realigned the NZTYA safety standards with the YNZ safety regulations, what became Part V.
