  1. I’ll be in. Currently stuff deposited in several different places. Appletons, Mt Gay? pm me contact number.
  2. Its all in the App developers lap as there has been an international furore over it. People saying they want to rip out all their Navico stuff and replace with another brand. On the net anyway. There must have been other problems for it to escalate like this. First call I've had from a "world service manager". Thanks to Matt at Neptunes gear. On the whole I really like my Navico gear and their response to any problems. (Apart from a certain custom help guy there that really should not be aspiring to that position.)
  3. I never understood why DSC calling was not in NZ if we have AIS. What is a DSC call from your plotter? Do both need implementation of shorebased hardware to operate that NZ doesn't want to fund?
  4. Guess you rattled their chain early Matt? Big things coming in software for" legacy" devices I just got told by someone that sounded informed. And in PR recovery mode. Nice to get personal attention. Hope their word is better than Balmar. .
  5. They haven’t yet sent me a case number. I’ll pm it when received. According to them the link app no longer works for mirroring the zeus2. SW development team currently working on it. Internet connectivity is still there, on mine anyways.
  6. Called Navico support and they said they have had this reported and there is no current resolution. Mfd sees wifi 1 phone sees wifi one- connected remote button solid (not greyed out) error message when tapped Link app for evo "2" series support discontinued...... New app only works with "3" series. Going to try with another iphone in case its the phone.
  7. Ok, thanks. The AP is via BT/ pilot remote and has always worked perfectly. Just wanted the chart/depth for cross reference. Just lamenting stuff I bought that wasn’t market ready or had inherent flaws and sketchy support.
  8. Bought and installed three +~years ago and used to update firmware. A week or two ago tried to mirror mfd and it wouldn’t work. Wanted to steer boat from bow and have depth an chart on phone. Rarely used feature but pissed me off because it only occasionally worked.So I tried to resolve including factory reset- no go. phone sees the wifigofree but mfd doesn’t list wifigofree as a device, only four devices with wifi gofree suffix, ie navigation, pilot,gps & a coupla others which I forget with the “this device” parentheses. ok, so last resort I deleted the link app on iPhone and r
  9. What’s a dripless 1” kiwi shaft seal currently cost? I see Henleys adapt tail of existing gland to take the KSS. Seems to do properly would require removing gland and stern tube and replace with composite water lubed stern log glue in. Not ready for that level of masochism. Have to at least finish HVUS’s land locked ensuite first.

    Pump head?

    It’s on the pump curve graph that comes with the pump. Depends on type of pump and power. Every foot of height (head)you are pumping against =0.533psi or 2.99kPa. Delivery vol will drop to zero on curve at max head for pump which is particular to your pump. Need model number and search for performance curve.
  11. Thanks for all the info guys; excellent coverage of the many variables. Around five years ago launched after a massive rebuild, new hull, new floors, stations,deck, and engine bed.(Of course)All DIM. (With a good mate) Prop shaft checked at machine shop for conformity. Reco'ed kiwi prop by John. Relevant to this,new cutlass bearing, new Duramax ultra X packing, R&D flexi coupler checked, multiple re-alignments initial and in water. Has been excellent to-date. Next to no drip at dock, minimal underway. 3/min. Minimal heating.(Hand stay-on-test) Recently started ex
  12. Awesome, now armed with work-a rounds!
  13. Butyl tape formed rings under track and 291 under washers below deck worked for me. Five years now. My track came with a wider aluminium spacer for under the track, which I didn't use Countersink is not only a hard edge stress reliever, the butyl gets to form a compression O ring in the countersink. Was suss on nylon fitting under screw head, hence 291 backup. My old ones had split.
  14. Sad. seems a blink ago I used to surf Cartwheel pt (Indicators) alone. Even before Wayne pissed Sam off.
  15. Does worn cutlass affect the drip rate? Also, dived the boat and removed a whole lot of fishing braid from around shaft and fouling the kiwi prop. Right up to back of cutlass bearing.
