This was my nav station before:

I took:
  • Phillips flat screen monitor discarded during a company computer upgrade $0
  • A Radio Shack power supply gifted by another sailor $0
  • Exisiting radar, radios and stereo $0
  • Existing notebook and MaxSea software
  • 12mm marine ply off-cuts from a local kitchen fitter's bin $0
  • 2 12v plug fittings $13
  • A sheet of American Cherry veneer $26
  • A wireless keyboard and mouse $58
  • Some fasteners, glue and varnish $?
and after many hours of work, I ended up with this:

Unfortunately, the rest of my projects could not possibly qualify for the "under $100" classification, they conform too closely to the "standing in a cold shower tearing up $100 notes" classification
Very nice.
