Not sure how to start a new post. I had a question if anyone on here owns a Datalink besides me.
It's a vessel monitoring system by Vessel Monitoring inc out of Fl.
We were talked into buying one last year as we live 600 miles from our boat. (Boats in Fl we are in Ga.)
This thing is great! It has already paid for it self by notifying us that we where taking on water last oct. we where able to call a friend and have him check on the boat. Sure enough the intake hose for the head was leaking. It has also let us know when someone turned off our shore power. Great invention!
Guess I should say what it is. dah. its a onboard display and when not on the boat it monitors our highwater alarm, intrusion, shore power etc.
Defiantly Cud-o's to these people. I don't have there web address but sure it will come up under a search engine. We dealt with a gentlemen by the name of Derreick who was the salesman who first introduced us to this.
Guess this is something the Mega yachts have had for years by what they told us, and now they have designed a smaller systems for th rest of us.
Any way safe boating and always enjoy hearing about something new that actually works
