Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.

I have an Alpha Spectra autopilot. I consists of the linear drive unit, computer, and compass. When the boat was new to me 5 years ago, it was glitchy but working through the company, I removed the faulty wind steering board (there was a windvane that mounted on the stern rail) and that fixed it. Except for the fact that I have no wind steering. Overall it seems a very reliable unit and holds a course well. I want to do more single handed racing and and feel the lack of wind steering or tack/gybe function is limiting. Does anyone know of a way to integrate N2K wind data to the Alpha Spectra. Their customer service is ok but the guy is a little curt. I asked and he just said Stan Honey like their autopilot and has a way to do this. That was it. I Googled the heck out of that but couldn't find anything. Of course the new pilots with 8-9 axis MEMS compass, remote, and integrated wind sensing would be an upgrade but is it worth it. I recently upgraded to the B&G Triton sensors and displays. Can I get away with just the new computer and remote? Will my existing compass suffice or is it a false economy after the adapters to integrate it? Is the NAC-2 ok for a 37' boat or would I have to go to the NAC-3?
