I appreciate the answer. Will be going up and replacing the belt on Saturday. Got a answer back from the Raymarine
customer support which said the same thing. Your directions helped make it much clearer. Plan to take pictures while we are up there and post, since many cruisers we spoke with had some of the same questions we did. This was our first time up the stick and the first time working on radar
. Preparing for our first time to go the Bahamas
in January. The anchorage is filling up for the annual St. Marys Thanksgiving Feast and most everyone is heading south. I really want my radar working for the trip.
Freddie gave the dome quite a few butt bumps while he was up there . maybe thats why it worked for a while that evening! A local gave us a great tip 'put our ear to the mast
when we turned on the radar and see if we could hear it humming" easy check for power to the array. Freddie said the belt felt a little loose after he streached it over the array arm so we feel pretty sure that is where our problem is. Hope to find out Saturday.
Thanks to all,
