I found west marine at the show making deals on b&g equipment, whereby it's usually priced at retail for west and defender. I was shocked. Plus got a $400 rebate coupon, and 4% back in west marine advantage points.

I googled the autorouting and found this https://www.bandg.com/news/nos181/

Another feature I think I remember I read about the zeus3 is that it has the forward scanning feature integrated. The Zeus2 does not also I believe the zeus3 has faster software. I have been trying to find a youtube video comparing the two but I have not been able to find one. In terms of cost it is a huge difference I can pick up a zeus2 from defender for 750.oo thats taxes on the zeus3 lol

All the reps had their experts there to answer questions, demo electronics, etc. We started Monday with tour of Naval Academy, Tuesday historic homes and capital, Wednesday sailing on a friend's Seawind cat on the Chesapeake. Thur and Fri at the boat show. Flight home in am. Oh, and Annapolis Doubletree had free shuttle to show and back running every half hour, to 11 pm. And ate enough crab cakes, crab and artichoke dip, crab soup, crab sandwiches, and had some decent local brews.

The Seawind 1160 Lite, the 38 ft model. Except I opted for the twin Yamaha 25 HP high thrust outboards. Some other changes to sails (Dimension Polyant GPL Lite Skin - carbon, square top main, roachy jib), electronics (Zeus 3, 4G radar, Vesper AIS, Icon vhf), etc. And only one head, which leaves the starboard bow room as a giant storage locker. No oven, but large Aussie BBQ griddle.

Layup started in July. We were in Vietnam 3 weeks ago checking it out. Supposed to be finished early Nov, then on ship to Miami. Super excited after seeing build process. Really stiff boat. All resin infusion, no wood except for thin veneer on composite panels for interior.

12 inch. Boat has a 21 ft beam, and I want to be able to see it from across the saloon!

Cool I was looking at the 9 for my sailboat, I asked about the deal you got and they offered me the rebate. They said the zeus3 9 inch and 4G Radar 3800 or 3900 minus the rebate. I am thinking about it. Might do the zeus2 for 750 and then pick up a radar in the future I need to do some research but the show ends tomorrow so, time is limited.

To get the rebate, the sales receipt has to show a date of Oct 4-8, no later. I had the Zeus 2, 9 inch on my Seawind 1000. It was a good unit. 4G radar also, very impressive and low power draw compared to conventional.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

Do they publish attendance? While the show was well attended, I actually felt it was slightly less than past years. My measuring stick was actually getting a seat at the bar at Middleton’s and Pussers for lunch. Places are usually 2-3 deep.
