Its good gear :LB (Olsen) is very correct

Now the next issue is for you to install it properly.

Saying this; I spent quite a few years and lets say a few nm with just an echo sounder and a garmin 12 (replacing the 38). To see where the wind was coming from and its strength, I look up!

So, a lot of instrumentation is very nice, but if you havent got it or it is old and dubious, look at the telltales. I do this in spite of having wind instruments.

Anyway, sounds like you have a well respected yacht. Have you got any pics of it?
