Re: Electronics

More than enough, IMO. Did a circumnavigation w/ a compass, taffrail log, receiver for time, a couple of stop watches, a sextant, a good pair of binoculars (today I use Cannon stabilized binos), sight reduction tables, a nautical almanac, Bowditch, a pencil & some paper.
Most of those wonderful goodies you've listed make crossings much more relaxed and fun, leaving one a lot more sleep time, which is a really good thing. But nothing beats common sense and your eyes for safety at sea.

Does all of this stuff work? And more importantly, do you know how to use all of it?
