    thanks for the heads up.


    On another note. Looking at the wiring diagrams for my boat, there is a tilt sensor. Supposed to kickoff at 90 degrees or something. We never reached a 90 degree roll but we would have been rolling quite considerably at times and in the short period swell quite a lot of momentum on the reversal on the back side of a swell. On the very remote chance one of these kicked off can anybody opine as to where it's located?

    Been rolling a lot, check the battery connections as it might have moved.

    You're welcome Bruce, this is why you spot test at various points, so you identify sections and eliminate them and locate the correct section.

    Much easier to work on a section than the whole loom.

    On my throttle levers reverse gear can look like neutral. Small movement. Trying to start in reverse caused the engine management box fuse to trip. Thats new to me?? Must be a thermal fuse because when I checked it it did not have a positive click and then jump out again so I presumed it was good. Got back to the boat, pushed it. It clicked back in. Voila.

    Volvopaul right on the money as always. Didnt think starting in reverse should trip it though. Very odd. I suspect there may be a deeper issue that needs investigating
