Look, Ma, I’m blogging!

Ben Ellison

Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Hello Ben….welcome! I have to say it was a lonely bunch of months with no new Panbo news, so I am pretty excited to see things back up and running again.

    Hello Ben, Thanks for your great articles, even though I own a motor vessel, I tend to follow the electronic that are available and grateful for you sharing your experience. I see that Simrad is on your list of favourites, and request for an AP11 spare controller from you our your readers.
    We had a 65kn storm in Richards Bay harbour and the fly bridge unit got damaged and swamped.
    Failing that, could one convert a Nmea2000 controller via an actisense to nmea183 and connect it to the Simrad J300X? Have you or your readers carried out this connection successfully? Your input would be appreciated. Many thanks. John

    Dang! Today marks 18 years since I posted this entry, my first on Panbo, and it tickles me that the site is still cooking. Big thanks to Ben Stein and readers everywhere.
