Re: what electronics to use- Raymarine, furuno, simrad or other
I think Garmin has great customer service. You an call right up and talk to a guy in Oregon. I know less than most but I think of them as
Garmin-newer but the easiest and best. Especially the best GPS technology. Best house charts. Mid cost.
Raymarine-the more fancy brand. My little experience with their customer service was when a trailer was parked at a boat show and me and one other guy were in it and they wouldn't answer my questions about autopilots. Although I think they are known for having the best autopilots.
Lowrance- the blue collar, decent quality, good customer service but since they cater a lot to fisherman, and not always big fancy fishing boats but like they have some of the cheapest fish finders and chartplotters. But you get the most for you money. They come often with preloaded charts.
Hummingbird-mostly low level for fishermen
Simrad-harder to use, good quality. Good radars.
