      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.

Old Ockams...

Recommended Posts

Hey there folks...

 

I have a complete set of ockams on the boat that appear to need serious care and feeding (nothing really works except the compass, needs a new wind transducer). This is the old school system with the chips. Anyone have experience with getting an older system back up to snuff?? Is it even worth it?

 

Thoughs?

Probably still has a lot of residual value, especially if you have polars (performance module) for the boat.

Should be able to get system up to snuff for much less than a new system with similar horsepower.

If you only cruise, doesn't matter. Get a windex and taffrail log.

+1 The old BNC Style connectors (esp the screw on type) and t-connectors are prone to problems. Since everything is daisy chained together, one break can keep a lot of parts from working.

 

Plan B: Part the system out. Displays and modules are still worth $$$ to people maintaining old systems.

I got some new LCD's and backlight bulbs for ours and they work great. Like was said above, make sure that all the connections are clean and good. You an easily get a new wind trands., Signets work well with the Ockams. Why do you think that trandsucer is bad?

 

Depends on where you are as far as where to take it or get help.
