I used to have occasional problems with my ST100.  It was always moisture related.  After getting jacked around by Raymarines non existant customer service I finally split the case and found it damp inside.  I put a hair dryer to it, put a very thin coat of vaseline on the case gasket and put it back together.  It would be good for another couple of years.  Repeated as needed.

Spithill at 265 lbs?  

I don't think so.  I've been in his presence a number of times and he doesn't have a 105 lbs on me.

The AC45 wing not up to the task? Maybe. They certainly had to add a wing extension after the fact, to broaden the usable wind range/usable locations.

 

My sources said the wing extension did nothing but decrease the righting moment when used.
