      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.

    similar concept http://smartroller.se/ I had one on myu previous boat, worked OK
  2. bandg autpilot wind mode

    Thanks! any idea where to find this magic setting? Change of topic: start time, I am sailing some evening handikap races with reverse start order, e.g. last night I had start time 17:03:17 I tried to find a setting to count down to this time, but no luck? does it exist ? where ?
  3. bandg autpilot wind mode

    Well I listed all I have above, I do not know which is the main controller, the AC42 or the Zeus2. /HW PS I have entered a simple polar table in the Zeus, thus there is some support for polars even without Hx000 computers.
  4. bandg autpilot wind mode

    I have an all B&G system Zeus2, triton displays. wind and log transducers, autopilot with RC42 compass, AC42 pilot controller, RF25 rudder feedback, Jefa drive unit I am mostly happy with the system, but "wind mode" confuses me. If I set it at e.g. 28 degrees AWD in wind mode, it steers quit nicely, the actual AWD just varies +/- a degree or so, but after about 5 minutes, the set direction has been reset to something like 32 degrees AWD. Does the pilot think it can pick a better VMG angel than me??? I have heard two other persons observing the same thing. Any idea what is going on? /HW
  5. Stack pack or not?

    There is an alternative version of lazybag/stack pack, which looks quite nice. It has two zippers the length of the boom. just above the battens holding the lower part of the bag. while sailing the top piece is detached, but once the main is dropped between the lazy jacks into the bottom part, the top part i zipped on. Nothing flapping while sailing, but still almost as simple to handle as a stack pack. I think it is invented by Lundh Sails Gothenburg Sweden.

  7. B&G wifi module

    Hi Well mine has been a little tricky to allow connection from Iphone, but once connected, it has been rock solid. But what drives me nuts is the brain dead design that the go_free does not support routing internet to/from one of the connected devices, that is kind o childs play with modern networking gear, Navico telling me to by a second unit is an insult, and it does not solve the problem that e.g. an iphone can not be connected to both the boat network and internet at the same time :-( /HW
  8. Zeus2 vs Zeus3?? What are the upgrades??

    Thanks for reply! I did find the tables for lay lines, after some tinkering. the drop down menu also allows selecting polar, how would one enter polars? And for the "simple" table, any way to just edit a file on a computer and, read it in, what is the format ? I might try entering a few numbers manually, and when try to find if there is any exportable file,... /HW
  9. Zeus2 vs Zeus3?? What are the upgrades??

    The version 4 update for zeus2 claims: " Target True Wind Angle and Boat Speed Tables A simple table that allows you to customise for your own boat the target boat speed and true wind angle for a known true wind speed. This information will not only help you to sail the boat to its true potential it will also be used to give you more accurate Laylines within the chart plotter." Has anyone found some more specific information about this function? -tabel format ? - how to load it ? - how to use it ? /HW Arcona 340
