      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Does anyone have experiences with the Ellipse2-D sensor from SBG-Systems? With very accurate heading and position it is maybe a much cheaper alternative to a quadrans? You know other options to get accurate heading data?
  2. Which speed/wind/compass/GPS you can recommend for a 50 feet Racing Sailboat? Speed: Does it make sense to combine an ultrasonic sensor for low speeds with a paddlewheel sensor for high speeds? e.g. Airmar DX900 + Signet 2536 Wind: B&G VMHU 1450mm - is there another option? Compass/Gyro: Precision 9 vs. Quadrans? Are there some others in between this enormous price range? What do you think about Ellipse2? GPS: Which GNSS receiver with exact data especially at low speeds you can recommend? I'm curious about your answers!
  3. B&G H5000 Hercules vs. WTP3

    Thanks for your very interesting answers! With your input, I think that the best option for me is to choose the Hercules with good sensors like the SBG Ellipse2. Do you know a better alternative to the H5000? Do you have any experiences with the Faro or the Bravo4 processor? For me the optimal solution would be a system with the possibilities and data quality of the WTP3 together with the configuration and calibration via Webinterface (like the Hercules).
  4. What are the exact differences between the B&G H5000 Hercules and the WTP3? What are the real advantages of the WTP3? Does the Hercules calculate leeway and upwash? Is there a difference between Hercules and WTP3 in the elimination of boat motion? I want to install one of these 2 systems in my 50 feet Racing Yacht for Coastal Races. What do you think is the better option? Many thanks for your help! Best regards, miglu
