My favorite instrumentation supplier Nexus has been purchased by Garmin, and I am hoping it means good things for the products. So far I have only good things to report. I needed to replace my log transducer, and Garmin provided one very quickly for a friend who was traveling down to Uruguay to join the crew.

The new transducer has a different fitting than the old, but I happened to have an extra through-hull mounted with the proper dimension. So I thought it didn’t matter that the boat was already in the water when the transducer arrived. What I didn’t think about beforehand was that the extra fitting was originally used for a depth sounder, which is not dependent on any particular orientation of the sensor. The log sensor on the other hand must be correctly oriented to work. But to my relief I had mounted the through-hull correctly from the start, so the installation went smoothly.
