Thanks for the quick feedback.
I will tweak the 2 joiners that have slight drips and look to replacing the hoses soon. Given the boat has had little use over the last few years (certainly nothing like 'commercial' use) I feel good about the trusty old RPU160 now. I'll order brushes
as spares and hopefully my new RPU160 can sit in the spares locker and get sold when I sell the boat. So far my Simrad/Robertson gear
has been totally reliable - really nice to get equipment
that just goes and goes. BTW installing the new Simnet gear is a breeze! I also got a Simnet to NMEA 0183
connector so I can interface my old B&G Network Wind
into the new Simrad
AC42 computer so it can steer by apparent or true wind
