As can only be expected seawater & electricís are not the best of bedfellows!
Our rib is now 18 months old & the gremlins are starting to worm their way in,
The Garmin Fishfinder 100 no longer shows a good trace of the bottom, at low speed it will show a flat bottom even when we can see the rocks coming up under the boat. It will show the depth but only after its been on for some time & travelling at low speeds, & at high speed it shows nothing at all, not a lot of use when we use the boat for diving.
The trim gage has stopped working & so has the warning buzzer, and all just as the weather starts to get better.
So here are some questions for all you experts out there,
is it worth getting the fishfinder repaired & where can we get it done? Does it have to be taken off the boat to send it somewhere or does anyone know of somewhere in the Swanley area that can do it while still on the boat? come to think about it, is it worth having it repaired or should we just get a new one?
Does anyone know how the trim gage works & where is the first place to start looking for faults?
& the same goes for the buzzer.
I suspect the gage & buzzer faults may just be a dodgey connection somewhere, they started as intermittent faults working sometimes & not others now they have stopped altogether.
Any help would be appreciated,
Iím hoping to find time at the weekend to have a look at it, while the rest of the clubís in the Red Sea (lucky lot)
