    B&G h3000 autopilot woes

    I spoke with a guy who just upgrade from h3000 to h5000 cpu in a j111 with the "old" h3000 acp pilot running without any pilot display. He control pilot via zeus 2 plotter. how is that possible? Is it possible to use the remote vision in this setup? This is what I got from him regarding update from h3000 to h5000. Items that I kept: 1. Wind transducer 2. Autopilot (already N2K compatible) 3. GPS 4. Chartplotter (Zeus 2) Items that I swapped out 1. Speed/Depth (combined into a single transducer that is N2K compatible) 2. electronic compass (Halcyon 2000 for a new Precision 9) 3. CPU (h3000 for H5000) 4. Mast displays (4 HV 20/20) 5. Added a new MFD that includes additional features like 'start line'

    Best furler for code and gennaker

    Good:) The code and gennaker are originally not designed for furling. Can that be a problem? What torsion cable is best for code and gennaker? Code is 60-70m2. Gennaker 140m2

  6. Any more experience with the harken reflex anyone?
  7. What is the best solution for a code and gennaker furler? 35 feet cruiseracer. Most cruising, some racing and short handed sailing. I would like to have both code and gennaker hoisted and attached to bowsprit at the same time. code half way on bowsprit and gennaker on the end.

    Is it possible to operate the ACP2 pilot with a older pilot display like the Hercules 2000?

    B&G H2000 and H3000

    Many thanks for help. I will read manual but a lot of my questions isnt mentioned in the manual. Is it possible to use different compass than halcyon 2000 or Halcyon Gyro Stabilized Compass Sensor on H3000 Hercules CPU / ACP2 pilot? What about the gimballed rate compass? https://www.sail-world.com/Australia/BandG-Gimballed-Rate-Compass-showing-the-way/-46330?source=google Is this an alternative to the Halcyon Gyro Stabilized Compass Sensor? What different linear drive can be used together with the ACP2?

    B&G H2000 and H3000

    Is it ok with just one halcyon 2000 compass on a h3000 hercules CPU with acp2 pilot or do I need a separate compass connected to both acp2 and cpu ? do you recomend a different compass for this setup. Ex a gyro compass? 35ft carbon cruiseracer. What different driving units can be used with acp2? I am not good in this b&g world, really thankful for all help.

    B&G H2000 and H3000

    Can almost all B&G Products from H2000 and H3000 be used together? Mast displays, FFDs, prosessors, transducers, cables, autopilot etc?
  15. Look into Ubi Maior’s single line drive fullers being used on the new J Boats.  Flatter drums means lower Jib skirts for better air flow?
