Hi Mates -
I have a couple of Airmar transducers on the boat which were not functional when I started to sail it. I am not sure if they are functional or not (it may be the upstream components which were fried).
1. Is it possible to test the transducers independantly (i.e., in a shop) or only after a new system is in place on board?
2. The triducer in the fairing block looks like a pretty expensive bugger, is it possibel to replace only the transducer and not the block? If so, can this be done while in the water
or must the boat be hauled?
3. There is a Raymarine
SHS box and a gyro compass
on one of the forward bulkheads (which was presumably used for MARPA with the old RC70 system). I am planning to install a garmin
MFD with radar
. Will the RM SHS work for Garmin
MARPA purposes or should I just pull it?
4. What is the fluxgate compass
required for: Radar
overlay? a RADAR perimeter alarm
4. Would you lend me some money
