NAIAD MultiSeaII - self centers
I'm currently having an issue with my NAIAD MultiSeaII stabilizer and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
When underway with the stabilizers in Active mode, the fins will switch from Active to Center. They stay centered for about 3 seconds and will then switch back to Active. About 3-5 seconds later it will Center again, then go back to Active.
This is really annoying because it a) has some pretty violent jerking motions on the boat depending on how 'active' the fins are, and b) puts some pretty serious forces on the fins as they go back and forth.
- This happens at random times - usually about every 30 minutes or so.
- Almost always happens 2-3 times in a row.
- Will happen in smooth or rough water.
- Isn't speed dependent - cruise speed for me is ~7 knots.
I called NAIAD tech support. The person I talked to said it sounded like the controller is losing the GPS signal. (What? Why does the stabilizer need to know where it is on this earth?) I re-seated the connector to the controller - no help.
Has anyone seen this or have any ideas?
Thanks a bunch!
