That sounds logical to me till I apply the 90% anchor vs 10% sailing rule.

Hmmm, the multi quote button isn't working for me. Anyway, I was just mentioning the night vision because it has been our experience that it is nice to be able to make a snack without filling the the pilot house glass with reflections... Most folks spend less time offshore than we do... As with most of this conversation it's a matter of taste and use.
