Hey,

As others have mentioned, it's really up to you. Does 'Electronics' mean below decks autopilot, radar, speed, depth, and wind displays, a large chartplotter at the helm with another display below, integrated to a DSC VHF radio and AIS transponder, or does electronics mean a hand held GPS and depth display?

Lastly, who will be installing the gear? You can easily DOUBLE the cost of the gear by paying for installation and using fancy Edson mounts.

Gear seems to be reliable. Most of the time I think stuff gets changed to take advantage of new features, like DSC radios, broadband radar, fishfinder / sonar displays and that stuff.
