Lots of folks don't want to drop the coin for a below deck pilot.
And the Ray WP's are pretty good units if properly installed and you trim your sails & balance the boat before loading them up.

Yes Ray is the only game in town on WP's but Garmin is now offering some very decent below deck stuff as well as Simrad. The CPT is rugged but really lacking in the integration department.
