The yard manager is recommending Raymarine -

Pilot House - I50 tridata instruments with transducers 444-E70149
Upper Bridge - I50 tridata instrument working as a repeater 444-E70149
Pilot House & Upper Bridge - ST40 compass system 444-E22014P
Pilot House - P70 autopilot control unit 444-E22166
Upper Bridge - S100 wireless autopilot remote 444-E12169
Course computer (if necessary) - SPX30 Raymarine autopilot 444-E12199
For Chart Plotter - GPS RS-130 414-E10060
E series chartplotter - for bridge - 9" wide screen multifunction display - 444-E70021 - E95
E series chartplotter - for pilot house - 12" wide screen multifunction display -444-E70023 - E125

for about 15k plus installation.

The owner trusts my input but its been a long time since I bought instruments (like when I had hair), and really need some recent experience and guidance. What are the comparable choices, does he need all of this, are there better choices???

Thanks in advance

Chucks recommendations about the hub and the ST70 are good ones
