I'm looking for a radar
for my boat. I feel kind of rediculous admitting I want radar
on my Cal-20, but the fact of the matter is that this time of year in the San Juan Islands
, we have alot of super thick fog
, and alot of boat traffic, so, it's kind of a requirement in my mind. I've run boats with, and without radar, but i see it as a piece of safety equipment
, and would like to look into it.
Years ago I used to have a Lowrance HDS5 when it first came out and i liked how you could just plug
and play a radar dome via nmea 2000
What's the smallest cheapest radar setup you can think of?
My main concern is identifying large ferry
boats and larger yachts, and doubt I need a range of 12 or more miles
I would just feel better having it for running in the fog
and at night, as a GPS
can only do so much
