    You say it all worked for a while - then went off.
    Doesn't sound to me like a positioning problem.

    It sounds to me like the contractor has streatched the cables and you have a loose electrical connection on the fluxgate itself.

    Just arrived on the boat, armed with 5core cable and a new fluxgate compass...

    Round sheath, 10mm dia, black, 8 coloured multistrand copper cores about the same 3 Ampish gauge as Raymarine Seatalk cables and not too weeny to use crimp or choc block connectors, no screening cores.
    Without being rude, may I ask why you have 100m of cable in your office!

    Yeh, the modern way is zip ties, much more difficult for them to struggle free.

    Exactly, Hurricane and djefabs. Just looking around my (London city overlooking St Pauls) office I see I have 100m of cable, two lumps of nice teak 50x180mm section, several small s/s fabrications, a Sykes Pickavant hydraulic puller for props and stabs and a spare Raymarine Gyro compass PCB card, just for starters. Far more interesting than all the spreadsheety powerpoint stuff that everyone else here seems to have in their offices. I also have a pair of girls jeans that I found on the boat at the end of summer, COH Brand (Citizens of Humanity, a Los Angeles brand), that I've been trying to find an owner for. I've asked all the girls in the office who have been on the boat but can't find an owner for them. Anyone on here been on Match and lost a pair of COH jeans?

    That would get many city companies sued for sexual harassment. Better phrase that one carefully
