I've also decides on a full N2K network, but I'm going with Furuno.

Just received all the equipment this week, FI series instruments and a NavNet 3D display for the helm. Looks like I'll be installing everything the week after next, just waiting on the teak instrument box for over the companion way.

Thinking of replacing my Raymarine radar and adding AIS next season, then waiting until we are able to head south in a couple years to upgrade the autopilot.

One issue I've run into is finding a N2K to PC USB box. Really don't want to have to run a NMEA 183 output from the plotter just for the computer, but I do want a redundant backup system.

I'll post my experiences once it's up and running.
