Hi, I'm new to this forum, though have had some great advice from reading previous threads.
I have a Bavaria
42 cruiser that we have for charter
in Kefalonia. On the last trip the boat suddenly veered to one side whilst on autohelm
. When I went to see what the cause was I saw that a number of things were wrong. I'm not sure if some or all are linked but here they are:
The instruments are Raymarine
1. The electronic compass
on the autohelm
was swinging randomly between 30 degrees and 200.
2. The speed and log stopped working.
3. The battery alarm
was sounding intermittantly all the was back to port.
I did some investigating when we were in port, and found that the prop on the speed meter was clogged with seaweed and various marine
life. I cleared this and the speed was registering when i spun it. However, when I put it back in and sea tested it, it didn't work.
Any suggestions to any of the problems would be much appreciated
