I have a set of Raymarine
I bought new about 4 years ago. When the mast
was restepped after a long overland transport, the wind
instrument no longer worked. I had a marine electronics
tech look at the boat
a few days ago, and he told me the masthead transducers seemed to be ok, and connection at the mast
base was ok. The display in the cockpit
shows 0 kts alternating with three dashes. The wind
direction needle does not move whatever the wind. It stays at 12 o'clock. He said he spoke to Raymarine
tech support, and they suggested recalibrating the instrument. This doesn't make sense to me, because there is essentially NO reading.
Anyone have this problem or an idea of how to repair
the system? I want to thoroughly investigate it before incurring the considerable expense of replacing the unit.
