Re: nav.gear, weather

Welcome aboard BlackBird!

Lot's of sparky's on CF. I haven't gotten as far as radar yet but I am close to figuring out the comms side. It is certainly a confusing arena with lots of choices.

It might be an idea to state a broad budget. Things like radar can go from expensive to ridiculous.

Then think about priority and is there anything you have that you would keep. Are you also talking about boat instrument replacement? Wind, Speed & Depth? You could blow $20k easy, I think.
