John Bartges created a new topic ' Custom Pedestal & Handholds' in the forum. 43 minutes ago

I am upgrading my electronics on my IP 445 and liked how this Navpod was mounted. The attached photo is a screenshot from the sales You Tube video. This is on an 2006 IP 445 which at the time was named "Gail C" that was for sale in 2012.

Appreciate any help or information on contacting the original owner to see where this was done. If anybody else has some good examples of pedestals/handholds on IPs, please share.

Appreciate the help, Thanks

My suggestion - Why not put it on davits and hang it upside down, It won't fill with water. At your destination you can turn it over use the davits as intended. I have done this a few times on our 350 and more recently on our IP 40. And I also keep a knife handy to cut it loose. If nothing else it seems to ensure that we have great weather. I wonder if Tom on La Vida Dulce would comment. Would this have worked in the rough wx passage you had coming from Bermuda? Hypolon inflatable dinks have so many issues it would be a shame to give up on your RIB.

I have a 2002 420 that I bought new. several years ago Packet sent a notice telling owners to consider replacing the exhaust elbow because it could become a fire hazard if the engine ran hot for a period of time. They felt that it was very close to the bunk surface. They were in the process of designing a new elbow to lower the height so it would not be as close to the bunk. Apparently that was done and you have the replacement installed when your 440 was built. I called and tried to get the replacement years later and talked to Karsten. He said they did not have any in stock but may have some produced later as they felt that the earlier owners would want it when it was time to replace the old style elbow. I am glad you found out the source and I will be calling them to have one manufactured for me. again Thanks

Hi Mike

Congratulations on your new boat! You will love her! Where are you based?

We're still using the davits with our 11' RIB. Our thought is to buy a Hypalon inflatable floor model that we can deflate and put under the Hoyt boom for offshore. We have friends who have an Achilles LSI-330E which they highly recommend. They've done over 50,000 offshore miles with that model on board and are very happy. We like the idea of being able to take the dinghy off for winter as well. We're in the PNW so we don't get really bad winters but we'd still like to be able to put the dink below for extended periods when we aren't using it.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
Blair

Hi Blair,

We are relatively new owners of IP445-01. Have you come up with a good answer to your question about where to store the dinghy when off-shore?

As a pilot I have learned from the mechanics that there are resets and then there are RESETs. First turn off the equipment circuit breaker. Leave it off for TWO minutes! I don't know why two minutes is key but I have seen it make a difference on many occassions. If that fails remove all power (AC and DC) from ship (airplane/boat) and then repower the ship and then the effected equipment. Depowering a jet half way through preflight is not done lightly but it is occasionally the only thing that can be regain the effected equipment. This especially true with electronics.

spinaker75is correct in respect that there are different forms of "RESETs".
Most electronics have two forms of memory. Volatile and Non-volatile. Volatile memory can be erased (reset) by a power dump. However, most error's and error codes are held in Non-volatile memory. Which as the name implies, stays latched after a power dump and/or power failure.
To erase these, a memory erase must be done. Which is what you are doing when you do the Fridg-O-Boat's reset.

In Avionics, this is referred to as a B.I.T.E. (Built In Test Equipment). If the fault is a phantom error, the unit will reset and then operate normally. But if there is a hard fault, it will fail the B.I.T.E., throw a code, and continue to mess up until the fault is corrected.

Kinda like your "Check Engine Light" on your car. You might be able to reset it with a OBD II tester, but any hard faults will come back. Causing the light to come back on.

Soooooo...
A power dump will sometimes get rid of nuisance errors. But any latched errors will need to be reset using the manufacturers procedures.
If it comes back, then you have a hard fault.

I contacted Hake Marine/Island Packet. They were very helpful. On the IP 440 and IP420 they removed the Yanmar mixing elbow and commissioned a company called Suncoast Specialities (727-584-3252) in Largo FL to manufacture a different mixing elbow. The company is still in business, they charge $442 and it takes about 2 weeks to manufacture the part.
