Re: 12 Meter Pulpit

I have the helm control, and added a handheld unit that is mounted just under the anchor locker lid. It's great because you can lean over the front while operating it.

Has anyone worked on or replaced the fuel float in a 12 meter international with a 400 gal tank?

Re: Back light for guages

Nothing seems to come on when I turn on the panel lights switch. There doesn't seem to be a Fuse/ Switch for panel lights at the main panel? I could not find any information on this in my owners manual. My big problem was grounding issues, as the "backplane" of the gauge cluster acts and the ground...

Re: Back light for guages

My '88 12 meter has a separate switch.

I am actually in the process of converting them all to LED, and adding a dimmer switch.

Re: What boat fridge do you use?

We have a Norcold AC/DC fridge. We run it off AC shore power and generator most of the time. On the hook, we turn the generator off at night, so it runs DC overnight. Draw is 3.2 Amps at 12 Volts DC, 2.2 Amps at 24 Volts DC, 0.4 Amps at 120 Volts AC. We like it and it has run well. Our insurance com...

Re: Rudder Gauge

We have an 88 International, and am not sure what you are talking about. Maybe it was an option, or added later? We have a rudder position sensor as part of our auto pilot, but it was added later and is tied into the NMEA network on our chartplotters.

Re: Holding tank sensor

I ran new wires to a new monitor panel I put in the hallway. Also replaced the sensor with a 3 level unit, as they get flaky after a few years.
