1) six of one, half-dozen of the other IMHO.

2) It depends...

3) Getting larger winches is probably a good idea.

4) Depends on what kind of sailing you're planning on doing. If you're planning on going off-shore, a hardtop dodger is probably better than soft dodger.

5) Yes, Clarion and a few other manufacturers have units that are marinized, and have an optional iPod connector, that allows you to control the iPod using the stereo controls.


6) Depends on whether you need multiple displays (one in the cockpit, one at the nav station) or not. The C-series do not allow multiple displays, while the E-series does.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
