Re: M Y Sirius

Yes, welcome aboard Sirius. I have had no problems over 6 years with my Raymarine ST60 (now out of production), but had problems on a previous boat with the sending unit for the cheaper ST40 (damaged in winds of about 50 knots). I have no experience with other brands and so cannot provide a comparison.

Re: M Y Sirius

The problem is that any existing 60's are old stock, as I understand it Mike. I can't comment on their new models. And regards to Oz, mate!
