      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

  1. So I need some new nmea 2000 instruments for my 28 foot sailing boat. The system will be based around a shipmodul multiplexor so I can send data over wifi to phone, pc, ipad and allene's racebox. So the cockpit display is important but not the only thing. I started looking at the different systems and it seems calibration is an ignored and little understood issue (including by me!). It seems that some of the systems store any calibration information in the display, and then maybe send the corrected items to any other displays from the same manufacturer. If this is the case then the output on my cockpit display could be different from say the output on my ipad. I don't really want to enter calibration information on 5 devices?! The DST doesn't seem like so much of an issue as a DST800 can store the calibration information and output it directly onto the nmea2000 bus. So just need something that can directly calibrate one. I am not so sure about Raymarine I70s and B&G Triton. They both seem to calibrate in the displays. The guy at raymarine told me the corrected data was then put on the bus but is there a PGN for wind offset for example? I just looked at a 130306 sentence and it doesn't seem like there is an offset setting? Wind Data: SID = 177; Wind Speed = 0.92 m/s; Wind Angle = 353.4 deg; Reference = Apparent. So I am not sure he knew what I was talking about? To me the NMEA2000 is coming from either the ITC5 in Ray or the wind instrument in B&G. Aha but does the instrument send out corrected data as the same PGN but from a different instrument? So can you select that on the shipmodul I wonder? Yes you can select a datasource. So the question here is do these displays reoutput corrected NMEA2000 data? Garmin support knew what I was talking about and though you need a Garmin display to calibrate he assured me that the offset etc was stored at the sensor. So I sort of like the idea of the calibrations being at the sensor. But maybe it will work with Raymarine or B&G by selecting the display as the datasource? Or am I missing something?
  2. Check out this product from the Tindie.com website, it certainly has all the features for building a great instrument dataway system on your yacht at a good price. The unit is provided in a reasonably splash proof enclosure. Has anyone installed one of these as I would be interested in some feedback before I buy one? The following is from the website: KBox is packed with interfaces and sensors to bridge together existing networks and equipments on your boat: One NMEA2000 interface, Two NMEA0183 inputs (one of them can be used as a Seatalk input), Two NMEA0183 outputs, One WiFi interface that can connect to an existing network or create a new network on your boat, Three analog inputs to measure voltages between 0 and 23V (batteries, solar panels, generators, etc), One shunt input to measure current consumption of your main house battery, One barometer, One inertial measurement unit providing a magnetic compass, an accelerometer to measure roll, pitch and yaw as well as a gyroscope, An SDCard to record data.
  3. I am refitting my 26' International Folkboat with modern electronics. I have a B&G Vulcan 5 as my center piece. I purchased it based on price/rebates, NMEA2000 connectivity, SailSteer app, size is appropriate for my cockpit/sea berth area. I have found a simple Thru-hull Simrad DST800 triducer for speed/depth/temp for roughly $260. It's plastic (I have a thick fiberglass hull) and uses a paddle-wheel for speed. My hesitation: The Vulcan 5 can take ForwardScan, CHIRP, TotalScan, etc. inputs, should I look for a separate speed transducer and spend some money on a better depth instrument? (I apparently would not need a separate sounder). Facts that may come to bear: 1. I am not really interested in fish finding (yet. I am an avid freshwater fly fisherman and may eventually want more detailed info) 2. I want accurate/quick depth readings and ALARMS because I lake sail now, and plan to begin my ocean sailing in the Sea of Cortez. (I am aware of the poor alarm volume in the Vulcans, any suggestions here would be welcome-I think I can repeat my Vulcan 5 to my IPhone and crank the volume, but haven't tried it yet). Should I start simple with the Simrad DST triducer or is there much to be gained from an accurate picture of the bottom/structure/obstacles, etc.? I can't afford a ForwardScan, but there are some CHIRP transducers in my budget range, are they worth it on such a small screen? What if I repeat the Vulcan 5 onto a large IPad or similar tablet? Thank you and fair winds, Perry
  4. Hi all! I use the calmness of the holiday season to research and structure my thought around a potential B&G refit of the sailing boat I recently bought. Maybe you can help me a bit - some of the topics I will bring up have been touched on in the discussions here but either the discussion happened some significant time ago (and available hardware changes quickly) or they seem to me not to be conclusive in themselves. The boat (which I use for single-handed sailing and sailing with my family but extensively for racing) has a B&G H3000 setup consisting of the following main components: Two GFD displays (one not working correctly and one only partially working - in both cases as a result of dampness in the display) One GPD autopilot display (working but showing also some wetness in the display) H3000 Hydra CPU B&G VMHU wind transducer ACP1 autopilot computer Jefa DD15 drive Three 20/20 mast displays KVH compass Remote vision remote control Depth transducer Speed transducer As a result of the two GFD displays failing the whole system is not operating correctly anymore and I will have to do something about it. Basically I see the following three main alternatives: 1) Get one new GFD and one new GPD from A+T Instruments I am thinking about the displays being shown here: http://www.aandtinstruments.com/home/products-2/displays/ Most likely the quickest alternative but will set me back 3500 €. And somehow I hate the fact that I will be investing so much in an older system - I also checked with them: Reparing my existing displays sustainably will be very difficult if not impossible. A potential other alternative would be to by an H5000 display and the B&G H5000 Fastnet Interface but that is only transferring data in the direction of the display and no commands in the other direction (like to control the 20/20 displays or to calibrate the autopilot) ... or am I mistaken here? 2) Upgrade to H5000 Most likely I can keep the transducers, the compass and the drive but will have to buy displays, autopilot and CPU. This will set me back 5300 € (if I am lucky). But I will not be able to use the nice mast displays... Is this worth it compared to the other alternatives? Especially if I consider how annoyed I feel about B&G not supporting the H3000 system anymore after what feels only a few years... 3) "Upgrade" to a Triton-based setup Maybe it is worth to migrate to a Triton / NMEA2000 based setup - also because of not being trapped in the situation where you have to upgrade everything because just one critical component fails in a system that is not supported anymore. I am considering: Two Vulcan7 as displays in the cockpit A NAC2-Autopilot A Precision9 compass 508 Wind sensor DST800 speed and depth sensor This will set me back roughly 4400 € - and maybe I can sell some of my still working old stuff on Ebay. But: Do you know any way how to still use my 20/20 mast displays in an NMEA 2000 world. Any experience with this solution here: http://www.sailmon.com/processor/? I also would love to use the B&G VMHU wind transducer on NMEA 2000. Any experience with this solution here: http://www.eurotaskltd.com/product/sailmon-windbox-bg-mhu-to-nmea2000-interface? Or any other solution? Which one of the alternatives would you recommend in general? Sorry for the lengthy post but I am a bit lost here ... and: Enjoy the rest of the holiday season! Cheers Sven
