Re: Voyaging on $500 per month
When I went looking for a depth sounder for my small sailboat a few years back, my gaze quickly turned to fish finders and then, why not, a gps/sounder. For less than $400 ( now 369 ) I got a color chartplotter, gps, sounder, trip, speed, log, battery voltage, time, sunrise/sunset, anchor alarm, etc.. and charts for ALL of Canada (or the US ). It's only a 4" display but I find it does the job and being small it doesn't need a lot of power. At 1/3 amp I could run it 12 hrs a day for 2 or 3 weeks off a car battery.
