    What is this thing for on my J/111 ?

    George,  the J/111 deck core is Corecell foam, not balsa if that's what you were thinking. So good idea to fix the leak, but shouldn't get seriously damaged like balsa would.

    Carbon Mast base is loose after unstepping

    Glad to hear it worked out Dan. Just be sure and run a messenger line attached to the electrical lines when you pull the mast. Tie it off to the U-bracket while the mast is down and you'll be able to pull things through when reinstalling.

    Carbon Mast base is loose after unstepping

    Dan, see photo for what this plug looked like on my J/88 before I first launched it. After this, whenever I pulled the mast I always left the socket attached to the boat and lifted it off the plug. The cross bolt goes through the U-bracket and its purpose is to prevent the mast from accidentally...

    J-99 =>J-112e

    On my (now former) J/88 I used white Gorilla Tape first and then stuck the labels to that. The Gorilla Tape has great adhesion and doesn't appear to deteriorate like Duct Tape.

    Connecting to H5000 Webserver with iPhone

    You need an Ethernet to Lightning adapter, something like this.

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    Worked it through the dealer I bought the boat from and it was relatively painless. Saved me about $2400 (cost of a replacement).

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    In case anyone cares...turns out the H5000 CPU was faulty and B&G replaced it under warranty. Everything reinstalled and working correctly. Had to manually re-input my polar and calibration data because it wouldn't load the backup file from an iPad.

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    That's an interesting question. Will try next time I'm at the boat.

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    Yes, reset to factory settings and no joy. Was really hoping there is some obscure setting I'm missing that is hosing things up but haven't found it. I think since the blue wire consistently shows zero volts at the WebSocket means something is amiss with the CPU.

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    Thanks, pursuing a warranty claim with B&G for the H5000 CPU. I'm told an alternative would be to get an Analog Expansion Module, plug the MHU into that and bypass the CPU connector. Agree that the instruments can be distracting but since the boat came with all this stuff, I'd like for it to...

    B&G VHMU Wind Angle Issues

    I'm hoping for a B&G wizard to chime in with advice or a fix for my wind angle issues... I've got a J/88 with a full suite of B&G instruments including an H5000 Hercules and 810mm VMHU. I recently had the MHU refurbished in Fort Lauderdale by Wheelhouse Marketing run by Jake Marantz...

    The watch of a yachtsman? Which one...

    I used to race J/24's with one of these back in the 90's. IIRC, you set the bezel at 3 and 9 o'clock to be the headings for the start line. Then 12 o'clock is the wind direction for a true line (in the picture above this would be 0 degrees). Anything other than 12 o'clock represents the favored...

    j/88 mast base for haul-out

    Dan, I've removed my mast numerous times after hauling the boat and have only removed the thru-bolt #1. Used a crane to lift the mast each time. I'm sure either method will work.
