Options for Depth and Speed
I'm considering options for installing new depth and knotmeter on my boat.
The old knotmeter is shot and not working or at least the pickup is not working properly. I have no depth meter at all at this time and think it is something I don't want to be without.
A friend of mine has a real nice Raymarine TriData display mounted on his bulkhead and it is a sweet piece of electronics. However, I'm a poor boy and $750 is a bit for my shallow pockets right now.
I would love to have digital read outs like the Raymarine, but its not totally necessary and good quality analog if fine. However, on the Raymarine item. I liked that speed and depth were displayed on the same gauge and they get their data from a single hull sensor.
My question is this... With the features I described above that I liked in the Raymarine, is there any options out there that are more budget minded and do the same or similar job?
