Here's my situation. I'm in my mid sixties. Will weekend sail and week long cruise for maybe ten more years. Northeast, inland lake sailor which means maybe active 4 to 5 months a year. Modest means, I do all of the work myself. I am refitting an 81 Ericson 28+ thinking of going with a Garmin 546s which will give me position, water depth and boat speed in addition to a number of other options I will never use. In addition to position, water depth and boat speed I would like to have wind speed and direction as well. What do you folks recommend. How do I get what I want at a reasonable cost?
