Re: choosing Instuments
It's interesting how different folks have different experiences.
I had a new Simrad wind instrument fitted in my boat before leaving California for New Zealand.
It was not working when it got to New Zealand three months later. Granted, we dipped the end of the mast in the sea on the way home but I believe that a marine instrument should be up to that.
The local Simrad agent disagreed and rejected a warranty claim on the instrument, referred me back to the selling dealer in San Diego. Yes, I said, of course I'll fly back to San Diego and present them with the failed instrument there.
In the bin it went, replaced by Raymarine, never to touch anything from Simrad again.
