Re: The Nav Station Is Obsolete, Let's Build a Bar!
While I almost never use the Nav Station while underway, I use it nearly every morning when cruising. A cup of coffee and my Ipad, checking weather, harbor/marina data, even just catching up on email. Sure, its more of a desk than a navigation necessity. However, I will also enter routing into the chartplotter at the nav station and it will transfer up above as we leave later in the morning.
And, I most certainly have paper chart books that I reference there as well. Usually for planning, more than enroute nav these days.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
