Marinetek video sounder

Postby romany275 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 3:40 pm

Hello all. I recently purchased a 1974 Classic 42 and it came with what appears to be an original Marinetek Maxim Video Depth Sounder. It seems to work fine and I see no reason to replace it just yet when there are other, more pressing cost priorities at the moment. The only problem is beyond basic viewing I have no idea of how the other features work. I was wondering if anyone else out in the Grand Banks world still has a copy of this unit's owner's manual and would they be willing to share a copy?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

I don't have one, nor am I familiar with the brand, but I did come across this on eBay, which may or may not be useful:

You might be able to get the owner to scan/copy the manual...or make a low offer

Thanks - I saw that listing too but never thought to reach out to the seller to scan a copy - good advice, I’ll give it a try.

Follow up - Actually purchased what appears to be a NOS unit in original box with all paperwork on EBAY. Seller didn't have power cords or transducer (which I don't need) so it was it offered for about $20.00. Now I have a back-up that works perfectly with an owner's manual. Sometime that place comes in handy.
