If it's brand new, you should have your warranty working. There is obviously a leak. So have your reseller repair all this mess for free!

SOURCE: rolex watch yacht master set time

Let me start by saying that I own this watch and LOVE it!

To set the time you need to pull the crown all the way out to the furthest position.

To set the date you need to have the crown in the position in between the "winding" position and the "time set" position. Basically, pull the crown out till you hear/feel 1 click to wind, 2 clicks (total) to set the date, and 3 (total) clicks to set the time. I always set the date first to 1 day behind the current date. I then move the crown out to set the time so that I can set the watch to either AM/PM depending on the actual time. For example, I set my Rolex today (the 5th of January at 3pm - just an example). I would first move the crown to the date setting function and move it to January 4. I would then move it out one more position to set the time. I would go around the watch until the date changed to the 5th and then go around from 12 to 12 to change from AM to PM. I would then move it to the 3 and then I'm all set. This is helpful because it will ensure that your date will correctly change when the day changes and not be 12 hours behind.

SOURCE: CD player wont work on my DEH-1900MP

Has the humidity ruined the unit?  Is it getting power?  If you have a yacht you can definitely afford a replacement.  They make splash covers and marine quality radios.  Try ebay.

How can I determine why my is my Hurricane Phoenix 120 is leaking?


Inside the scupper holes which can't really be inspected, leaks can be a serious problem. some owner tie a rope thru the scupper holes to attach to a rack or other reason, but when the walls inside the scupper holes 'crack' there's no way to tell. Stand the kayak on end and fill with water. Look for leaks that way, by filling the whole tamale with water and inspect for water leaking out. Probably time to shop for a new one!

SYMA RC CENTURY BOAT DOESN'T WORK OUTSIDE WATER


Actually the Syma Brand Boats are designed to not to work out of water. It is a safety feature. You can bypass that if you like. You remove each wire that is soldered to each propeller shaft and twist them together.

What problems or benefits will I get with an aluminium boat hull


Aluminum boats are easier to maintain, will last longer than fiberglass, and are easier to repair. You can also bump into things without causing damage like you would to a fiberglass hull.

The only real advantages to fiberglass are that it looks better due to the gelcoat finish, providing that it is maintained, they also feel more solid in the water due to the extra weight, and they tend to ride better and are quieter than an aluminum hull.

One other consideration is whether you will operate it in fresh water or salt water. Salt water can lead to corrosion problems on an aluminum hull if you leave it in the water. Fiberglass doesn't have that problem, but you can have a problem with blistering if you leave a fiberglass boat in the water for long periods, especially if you don't use a bottom coat of some sort.

If you do opt for an aluminum boat in salt water, just make sure that you spray it down with fresh water and wipe it down with a soft towel whenever you take it out of the water. This is actually a good practice for any boat, aluminum or fiberglass.

Do I need a special license to sail a Yacht?


You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.

Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.

How many people can fit in a 20 feet yacht?


I'm sorry but I totally disagree with the other answers... a waft yacht is pretty small & would never advise more than 4 people for any period of time, on the other hand if you are just going on a jolly for a few hours then possibly 6 people, 20ft yacht is a small vessel and you will not be able to move around on the thing with more than 6!
