Sounds good, and the main reason is I want to get away from fuses and go to all breakers, I hate fuses because I don't know how many times I have had them blow, trouble shot a problem, thought I fixed it, inserted another fuse and pop!

The Lowrance has a 2.6 beam width where as the Garmin is a 3.7 this is because of the CW technology, doesn't sound like a lot, but it gives you a whole lot more clarity in what you are seeing. Its almost 1 better accuracy.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Made it to Central South Dakota, should be in Walcott Iowa tomorrow evening, still a long ways to go, hopefully can deliver this thing Wednesday or Thursday morning.
