  • Barefoot 200 Speedometers

    Hello: I just purchased a BF 200. There are two speedometers on the dash and a third speedometer in the stern area facing forward - likely intended for a judge during competition.

    None of them work. Does anybody know how to get those speedometers to work once again. The tubing is not intact, so that is an obvious fix. Does one tube feed all three gauges.

    Please help me restore the original operations of these dials.

    Boat should have 2 pitots with 2 tubes going to the helm, the third gauge may be driven off the outboard if it has a separate pitot tube or may be T'd off one of the pitot pick ups.

    Either way trace those forwards. I usually pull off the tube and use my bicycle pump to make sure its not tubing related.

      Also; clean out the small pitot openings where water comes in. A simple paper clip will work.

              I keep one on my key chain.

              I used to use one of these until they became no longer available. Last year I found a place that makes them but I am not willing to give up my paper clip.

                  Source please. I used to have one but the cleaner fell off and now all I have is the float. Thanks.

                    If they are Airguide Speedometers you could upgrade them to GPS:

                      I was gifted a book on industrial design that had an entire chapter on paperclips - something we think of as pretty mundane is actually somewhat particular in design and function.
