    On my shaft boat the feedback sensor arm rod was attached to one of the rudder arms not to the connecting bar.
    Feedback sensor failed last summer while on a trip to Ramsgate, was foggy and vitally needed to find a little gap between a couple of bouys marking sandbanks.
    Suddenly noted that we had turned hard to starboard and were heading for shore.
    Water had entered the body of the device and had corroded the bits inside.
    Discovered the remains of a previous sensor which had obviously failed some time in the past.

    If I said the bit that failed and rendered both U/S, was exactly the same in both cases, would you believe me ?
    Water had seeped inside a encapsulated PCB.
    A combination of salt water and electricity does not work well.

    This little bit of Raymarine Treasure retails at £275.00.
    Ebay was my friend......bought one in Florida.
