> Everything started mysteriously working last night.  All the breakers work, ever the ones that were iffy the evening before.  Guess I will look into replacing the panel/switches later.  At this point I'm going to trust that they will work through the Saturday race. Depending on where they point the cameras, you guys can watch the race at http://www.wistv.com/global/link.asp?L=40481    Spent the evening calibrating my Navman 3100, So EXCEPTIONALLY COOL to have real electronics instead of having to stare at my handheld GPS occasionally.  Nothing left to do but cement the depth transducer down in the bilge.    Not drilling holes, just doing the surface through hull thing.  Can't find my instructions for the transducer in the parts box anymore. . . .

> What kind of adhesive do you guys reccommend for bonding the transducer to the inside of the hull?
