I went back to the boat to try the test you described, and am perplexed by a new result. When I take the speed/temp sensor out of the thru-hull, the instrument works sensing temp in a bucket of water and reading speed if I…"
"Another update a month (and a couple sailboat races) later:
It's reassuring to see that in the interim, several others have had similar experiences commissioning the EV-200. Those of us who read manuals (vs. the commissioning summary in…"

"Be careful extending the foil, you may short circuit the other connections in the cable.
If you carefully cut back the foil on both the ends you cut, you should find a 'drain' wire (an un-insulated stranded conductor which is in contact…"
