Vessel monitoring systems that are dependable?
I have worked with EMI and Simon monitoring systems onboard newer US built yachts. I love the systems,,,, when they are working! I certainly would not want to see any life saving equipment being built around these monitoring systems.. or at least with out an IT tech 24 hr standby service to go with it.
I was wondering what some of the European or other yachts were installing for monitoring and how dependable or reliable the systems are.
Do they do things that that it should not do and you have no idea why?
Are they overly complicated?
Have they failed in the worst of times?
Ghost alarms that mean nothing?
Is the service tech dependable for malfunctions that you can't fix?
