Ron I show 14 amps down in the cabin meter.
I  am leaning towards bad batteries even they are only 7 months old. Batteries do not like FL, they only last 3 years.

Have a starting and electrical problem this past weekend, let me give a little background.

I put the back in the water back in the beginning of April after being out for 1.5 years. At that time replaced the batteries  when i  was put in the water the boat would not turn over had my mechanic come over to get me started so I could bring the boat to the dock. Since being busy I could not go out on the boat plus in the summer weather is not that great to sail in here in FL. I did run the motor at least once a month for an hour or plugged in for a couple of days. Boat started up with no problems so we went out for a sail the weekend before, which brings me to this last weekend here is the scenario:

When I go to turn the key my amp meter goes to zero.
Go check batteries the show charged.

Go and put the stereo on no problem turn on the cabin lights on  stereo turns off.
No cabin lights
turn on VHF no problem
Water pump no problem
Has this happened to any body.

buy and cover them with that.

Went to the boat yesterday and my st60+ wind instrument shows the dash lines, my vane was ripped off by an osprey about a year ago but still gave me speed now nothing any thoughts, the unit is 15 years old.

Also my head unit on the st4000 went black the auto pilot still works I figure I have to replace the head unit.

Wondering has anybody changed to the i50 or or i60 units?

I will remember always working with you at the booth in Atlantic City and you visiting Annapolis show when I worked for the Catalina Yacht Store.
All the great wealth of knowledge you shared with all of us here will be missed.  There can never be a replacement that could fill your shoes.  :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
