True, but you want a fixed mounted one as well. You want some height on the antenna if you need the distance. I actually have a fixed mount at the nav station with a ram mike at the helm. But I find that I use the Handheld most of the time.

Montenido,
I have a suggestion for an inexpensive GPS set up on a C30... Run your twelve volt line from your breaker to the starboard lazarette, and then up your binacle where you attach the Garmin or whatever. Here's the set up on my C30. It's the only picture I could find...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I posted this picture for the technical information it conveys -- kinda sorta. Behind the little girl making the pig snout with her thumbs is the coming out of the lazarette. This set up, however, makes the wire an obstacle when climbing behind the wheel, as you can catch it on your foot. A better set up could easily be made. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Of course, none of that is clearly visible due to the cute kid with the hog snout.

Yes I definitely see the merritt of this installation....

The look of shear terror...the look of belittlement... and the look of indecision...




BFWIW...You are a wealthy man...

I have been using the Garmin 4208 chartplotter for about 6 months, It has been great and I have used it in all weather. I however don't have any other experience with anything other than Garmin. I am a pilot and I have been using Garmin for years in my planes so I think its reliable and really easy to install. BTW I like you boat CONGGRATS!

Congratulations on the new family member! Don't worry about the money...

On my boat's website I have a quote from Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did." So go out and make some fond memories!

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
