      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. NEXUS autopilot on AWA

    Hi, AWA on both instruments are showing the same value, at least up wind (I use 27-29 degres). Damping of the wind do not show on the autopilot instruments, fore some strange reason.. And I have given up sailing down wind in AWA mode. Is's hard enough to get the pilot to work OK using compas mode down wind... For down wind sailing in wind mode the pilot will need TWA, and the Nexus dont have that. Bjorkski
  2. NEXUS autopilot on AWA

    I have the same pilot on my Humphrey 30, and I can only get the pilot to work proberly in wind mode when gong up wind, and I need to decrease the rudder responce to. Thy to play with the other settings as well.
  3. Nexus have the HPC compas. It's a six axis compas and should be more or less the same as a rategyro. Or am I wrong? Bjorkski
  4. Hi, I have same problem on my Humphreys 30. One of the isusses is that the Nexus pilot dont have the TWA option, for some reason. All the information needed is there. I reduse the speed on the rudder (funtion no.8), decrease RUD (funtion no.1) and increase CRD (function no.3) related to the up wind settings. It have helped me, but not enough... Especalie when jibbing the pilot is having a hard time. I am about to instal at secundhand NKE. The idea is to have all the Nexus transducers and displayes, and NKE autopilot and Its display. I may use the Nesux ram too, is still to be desided. BR Bjorkski
  5. TackTick Wireless does NOT turn on? Battery?

    Have you measurred the voltage at the solar celles? ( in sun light)
  6. West System over stained wood

    No problem if the stain is water or alcohol based. Not sure about oil based..
  7. Team Vestas grounded

    Let's hope they take vare of the navigator, he must feel very bad...
  8. Nexus NX2 server issue

    Have you opened the serve to see if any component have been burned? My server broke down due to low volt over time. I got it fixed by a friend, but he recommended to buy a new one so I did... BR Rasmus
