I am in my 11th year as a liveaboard cruiser and those are the things that you hear people looking for help with on the morning radio nets.
I would not care who fitted them but it would be worth your while to be able to diagnose and fix common faults in those things. Don't just buy the spare bits; fit them and check that it still works, keep the tools you needed. Keep the bits you removed as spares, you KNOW they fit.
I guess you are looking at the Ovni range, the 445 is just right for a cruising couple IMHO and just maybe the bigger one would be OK too.
