That boat will be great when it's smooth. Leave really late or really early on both sides and you'll have a good trip. We have a lot of nav stuff onboard. If you have an Andriod or Apple device with a touch screen you can get iNavx or similar for not a lot of money. It's way more accurate than a lot of GPS's near shore because it triangulates off of the cell towers as well. Here in Banderas Bay my other GPS devices say that I'm either a 1/4 mile inland or about 2 miles inland. My iPad is within a foot or two.
