I can sense it … the aging electronics and even older wiring is going to be an issue in getting things working 'dependably' on our new 'old' sailboat Encore. I'm sure it is not a surprise to those familiar with electronics on boats, especially ones that have already sail from England to New Zealand and eventually found their way to Florida in their lifetime; humidity, saltwater and corrosion are deadly combinations for 1980s wiring plus the many hands and many upgrades. I'm actually surprised it is as sound as it is? At what point do I replace rather than repair?I figured I see if I could upload this from the airport as I wait for my delayed flight — snow somewhere snarling aviation traffic I assume. Remind me that I don't like emailing from a smartphone!
