      Hi All,
      I have the original B & G instruments which were working fine until recently. The speedo works in the correct sense but suddenly under reading about 2 knots. Impeller spinning okay, adjustment pot moved back and forth and wires waggled.
      Any ideas gratefully received as I think they look right and I'm not quite ready for a modern look (nor on the boat).
      Many thanks,

          Pete,

          I had my original B & G wind instruments recently upgraded or rather repaired by Tinley Electronics based in Lymington www.tinleyelectronics.com when the wind vane itself got damaged. Richard Tinley specialises in repairing old B & G stuff so would be a good call.

          Good luck

              This is the older B&G Hornet. The Hornet 4 is a digital unit which came out in the mid to late 80 s, and looks completely different. Best Regards, DS. To:
