Re: north sail vs doyle

Go with the one who will take measurements and talk to you about the kind of sailing you do. Even better if they are nearby. Both companies are reputable

Re: The iPad thread! who uses an iPad for sailing?

zarcor sells a mount for your I-pad. We use navimatics/active captain. I-sail is good. Windfinder is also helpful. But I have a chartbook on the shelf. The Admiral really likes the I-pad.
