You have 'Restart' as well. When I hit mine, you can hear the hydraulics deload and the locking pin releasing.

You have automatic locking pins? Ours locking pins are in a little built in hole meant for them directly next to where the hole is to lock them.

Right, so you have the older style without the hydraulic/automatic locking pin.

What a great technical thread for those of us with active stabilizers. Some of us, misguided as we may be, enjoy this aspect of TF and keeps us coming back.

It appears that there are some fundamental design differences in stabilizer brands and build year that is causing some confusion, me for one. So with my Wesmar book in hand I will be talking to some of the systems designers at the next Seattle boat show. Fun stuff.

Yes. I think ours were purchased right after they changed from manual to automatic. Can you adjust the default boat speed to reduce response rate? I find that to be a nice feature. In calm waters I set it at 20 knots and in slop 10 knots. This affects the degree of deflection in response to certain rate of roll.

Not sure haven't really played with them. I'll have to go through the menus and see if there is.

Menu - Speed - up and down arrows to change speed.

I have the same controls as Oliver and you can adjust the speed. I use the speed adjustment like a "gain" control. If you reduce the speed (aka boat's speed), the controller makes the stabilizers work harder.

Very useful when the waves get large enough to be uncomfortable (unless they are following seas, then it makes it worse).
