I have read all the sales pitches with respect to various radars. They all say they are the best. Ok, so I want an open array system that will show me clearly what I need to see in snow storms, fog and at night. Which make and model do you suggest? Please help.
Furuno is excellent. It is the most common brand on commercial fishing boats because of its reliability. Not as good bang for the buck wise. I have a Furuno MFD-BB on my research vessel. Furuno's customer support is excellent.
power consumption is not an issue. Kubota dieselgenerator will handle everything on board if need be. I need an integrated system and wanted to start with the most reliable radar unit I could find first. Cost is not as important for this venture as reliability. A long time ago I survived a 50mph gail on Lake Ontario. The date was November 10, 1975.
I was much younger and foolish then.
