Default RAYMARINE 53 WARNING!!!!

I posted this in an older thread, but it might be worth it as it's own topic:

WARNING!!!

This month's edition of BOAT U.S. has an article on the RAY 53. There are a large number that were wired backwards at the factory. Although they do send distess communications (DSC) they do so without sending the GPS coordinates. Alot of good that will do! RAYMARINE admits to the screw up and advises that all owners check to see if their's is affected.

Makes you wonder why they packaged that particular radio with their "value priced" all in one special they have been advertising. Wonder what problems are going to show up with the radar and chartplotter units they include ??

The Truth is that Saddam has SARS- Severe Acute Regime Shrinkage!

The sets with serial numbers of M108877 and higher are ok. I got my "Value Pack" over a month ago and the radio was over 17,800 numbers higher. I think the problem was taken care of some time ago. The good news is Boat US publishes this stuff.
