For now, it will be me solo puttering the N. Chessie, mostly daylight and probably for short-term/couple day trips... at least for this season. Eventually, the plan is to be on the water between the Chessie and Corpus Christie somewhere, full time
While I *had* considered a handheld, I was recommended a permanent cabin mount, as it will fare better at distance and be less likely to take a swim
Would you consider AIS to be mandatory on the ICW ?
Oh! BTW.. my W-27 has tiller, not wheel steerage. Mo' room in the 'pit
