    Engine alarm chirps

    Universal m25 xpb panel alarm this morning started chirping after the first 15 minutes of running. Normal temp and oil pressure. It was so quiet and fast that I mistook it at first for something loose on the cockpit vibrating. It ran fine the day before. Oil pressure read 50 temp 158.

    New depth display....old transducer

    Just applied Maine Sails handy tips to connect my old 200 mhz? Data Marine transducer to a new Raymatine i50 display. All went well.
