Raytheon ST 40 or 60?

I just purchased a Hunter 260 Water Balast for lake sailing in Colorado. Can some one explain the difference between the ST40 & ST 60? I would like to put Wind, Depth and Speed instruments on her before I put her in the water in March. Since I''m only on a lake, I can''t justify twice the cost. I have heard that the ST40 is a Pulpit mount. If that''s true, can i get a special bracket for the masthead. I would like to put it on the Masthead. I does come with 66 ft of cable though.There are other manufactures but Raytheon seems to be reputable and have the best prices. BLUE SKIES & HIGH TIDES Taylor

I have been looking at depth and speed instruments. The chandlery I spoke with sells both the ST40 and ST60 lines.

ST40 is more affordable and has recently had a price drop to convince people to but it over the ST60. The ST60 seems to be more flixible in setting up repeater displays, etc...

With just a basic unit you will probably find the ST40 all you want. If you are going to buy a whole suite and go big time the ST60 series offers lots of features that are nice ... like repeaters in the Nav station, etc...

Not sure exactly how accurate all of this is but is what I have absorbed of what I have been told.

Ideally I would buy a ST40 bi-data with depth and speed for the port bulkhead and then put a repeater on the Stbd side. I believe this is not possible with the ST40 but is with the ST60.

Hopefully this gives you an idea of the types of differences between the two series.

Mike, I just tossed a DQ to Raymarine about the ability to interface the ST40 with my ST4000 autopilot. The guy said, just plug it in. I''m not too savvy on these integrated units but don''t want to buy a new depth to replace my Datamarine that is becoming inconsistent that will not "talk" with other gear if I should get one of those pricey combo unit/display things.
