my nav 6 plus had stopped showing messages, did all the voltage and resistance tests on the antenna lead which were not the correct readings, opened the antenna and out poured the water! as i guess its rain water whats the chance if i dry it out that its going to work? there are several integrated circuits and variable resistors and inductors.

Complain to McMurdo. I recall ICS changed quite a few of those units due to water ingress, but not sure what McMurdo's policy is since they bought ICS....

Keep your fingers crossed then , because if power was applied to the circuits when it was swimming it's most likely fried , specially any variable resistors and other components with adjustable parts in them
