my first electronics upgrade
Yes and Yes, that is me and that is Heron. It was a great day sailing along the Jersey shore.
CalebD - sorry I did not get back to you on crewing for our trip. The time slot came up quickly and I had another friend that helped us make the trip so we were good.
I certainly will consider radar if I have any plans to go offshore. But for now I just plan on building experience.
If I do plan to go offshore is my choice in autopilot still ok? Or should I look at an internal drive one instead of wheel drive? Can a wheel drive unit be upgraded by just buying the internal drive? No one has suggested that I consider a Simrad autopilot instead of the RM, I thought someone would make that suggestion. Any comments one way or the other. Even though I am not planning for offshore right now, should I consider an internal drive anyway?
I have to spend some time studying the quadrant to see how to mount the rudder position monitor (and or internal drive), it is all very tight spaces back down there.
