Ive just bought an 85 Dana 24 and want to do some cruising across the Gulf of Mexico from the Texas coast. I took out the old non working instruments,speed ,depth,and wind. I wanted to go back with one unit swiveled in the companionway. Is radar a nessesity for offshore cruising? And what about the energy requirments to run it. I was set tobuy a Garmin 398 plotter/depthsounder should I go with the Raymarine multifunction display with the Radar?I could use some advice if anyone has some experience inthis area Thanks TVDana24
