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.

Michael replied to the topic 'Shaft Alignment tolerance' in the forum. 2 days ago

That makes a lot of sense. I was able to get the shaft to ~0.002" after fixing the mount. I'll check it again in the water after a few weeks and see if it changes.

Geronimo

The mast is grounded also by the shrouds and stays which connects to the chain plates which are connected to the grounding green wires. I had the IP 27 for 10 years and I do not recall a wire on the step plate. So, your mast is grounded.

William replied to the topic 'Shaft Alignment tolerance' in the forum. 2 days ago

Michael, it seems like we are supposed to measure and align the shaft after the boat is back in the water. something about the flexing of the boat or whatever. I think i read that in Nigal Calder's book. But I'm getting old and might be mistaken.
One thing I am sure of is that aligning the shaft was much easier on my 31 after I used a block and tackle between my engine and the boom to take some to the weight off. I loosened the bolts between the mounts and the floor. Then I was able to move the engine around by hand and rubber mallet, get it aligned side to side and then let off the tackle. Then i took another measurement, did a few minor tweaks, and we were good to go. Don't forget to recheck the alignment after you give the new mounts a chance to settle in. While your down there suffering, you might as well repack that shaft seal!

William replied to the topic 'Lightning protection and grounding system for IP 27' in the forum. 2 days ago

there should be a green wire (cable) attached to the mast plate at the base of the mast.
I'm with you, I think lightening is the thing that gets me most nervous. To get control of my fear I remind myself that if I do get struck, and it's fatal, I'll never know what hit me.There one moment, gone the next. Considering all the ways I might leave this world, a fatal lightening strike has got to be one of the better. It sounds rather ridiculous, but it works for me.

Geronimo created a new topic ' Lightning protection and grounding system for IP 27' in the forum. 2 days ago

Hello everyone!
I unstepped the mast of my IP 27 to rewire and change the wind transducer, and renew the VHF antenna. I read in the manual that all Island Packets come with a grounding system that connect the mast to the plates and down the engine and shaft, which is great. However, after removing the mast I haven't seen anything alike; is it connected to the mast step? Has anybody seen it?
I'm new to Florida, and am quite scared of lightnings... I got trapped in a squall two months ago with lightning all around me, it wasn't fun at all....
Any help is appreciated!

Hi.
Can anyone provided me with a part number for a screen kit for the Grohe faucet in the forward head of my IP38-149? The IP factory site indicates they don't have any in stock. I have sent them email, but not heard back. The boat is currently in Mexico, so I can't measure the unit or search it for part numbers. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike
