mccary Congratulations on the new family member! Don't worry about the money...

On my boat's website I have a quote from Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did." So go out and make some fond memories!

arenuiwaka I have been using the Garmin 4208 chartplotter for about 6 months, It has been great and I have used it in all weather. I however don't have any other experience with anything other than Garmin. I am a pilot and I have been using Garmin for years in my planes so I think its reliable and really easy to install. BTW I like you boat CONGGRATS!

Stillraining Yes I definitely see the merritt of this installation....

The look of shear terror...the look of belittlement... and the look of indecision...




BFWIW...You are a wealthy man...

sailingdog Of course, none of that is clearly visible due to the cute kid with the hog snout.

sailingdog Sailhog-

I see your youngest takes after you a bit... Thank god the mother is pretty enough to offset your gene contribution.

sailhog Montenido,
I have a suggestion for an inexpensive GPS set up on a C30... Run your twelve volt line from your breaker to the starboard lazarette, and then up your binacle where you attach the Garmin or whatever. Here's the set up on my C30. It's the only picture I could find...

True, but you want a fixed mounted one as well. You want some height on the antenna if you need the distance. I actually have a fixed mount at the nav station with a ram mike at the helm. But I find that I use the Handheld most of the time.

Thanks for the great info

Hi, all. Great suggestions from everybody. I currently have handheld models of GPS and VHF radio. The cockpit radio is dead, so that needs replacing for sure. As for all the canvas, I know it is a good thing, but I need to clean it up. I will send some better pics once I have gotten to shine her up a bit. She will be docked in Channel Islands Harbor, and Sailhog, if our boats were separated at birth, yours got better owners/parents. Very pretty. As someone suggested, I will just start sailing her around and see what I need as far as add-ons. The only pressing item is the bottom paint and running rigging. Thanks for all the kind words.
