    Time to play hypothetical questions. Let's say I have a boat. What boat isn't important. Let's say it has radar. Let's say there's a race called, say, Swiftsure. Let's say this race usually lasts a long day and two nights. Let's say it can go longer. Now let's say I want to run radar for the...

    Has anyone installed radar on 18-20 ft sailboat? If so, how did you do installation (pole, mast, stay, etc) and anything sneak up on you. Thanks in advance.

    I've recently purchased a new Icom 802 SSB and tuner, and currently have a Simrad 4g radar gimballed mounted on my backstay(I also have a hydraulic pump for the backstay). I want to install isolators on the backstay. Where is the best location for the isolators on the backstay? Can the lower...

    I was just wondering if a car radar detector would alert you to a ship near by that had his radar turned on. I have used one for years while driving and they seem to work great. The best use I have had is while driving in Nebraska, completely flat land with every little town having a radar gun...

    The older I get the more I like big screens so I can see things better. (Galaxy Note 3, was last "big screen" purchase). My question is as far as I can see on line, in order to get a large NAV/RADAR screen it must be a dedicated unit, I'm not finding the ability to plug into a larger generic...

    Hello all, I'm working toward finalizing the purchase of our first sailboat (1988 Hunter Legend 37.5) and I am so glad to join the sailnet community. I've been part of dual sport moto (KLR 650) forums and volkswagen forums (1986 Westy)for years and I'm glad to find you! So I've done quite a bit...

    Is it a weird idea? I'm planning to install an older Raymarine Pathfinder unit, which I got for peanuts as not working and repaired it. Any decent aluminum or stainless steel mast mount would probably cost much more then the whole unit did, but besides that my driving force is that I like DIY...

    I am in need of the 10 pin scanner connector (the one that connects to the back of the color lcd display) and would not be adverse to purchasing a whole 10m cable with connector (new or used). I understand the same cable is used on the JRC 1000 and 1500. Suggestions as to where to obtain one?

    Currently in quick need of authoritative feedback on the Vigil Marin radar (no model number given) that I might be interested in purchasing....in specific, parts availability, reliability, maximum effective range, etc. The unit is said by seller to be in fine working condition. My expertise a...

Now my question is how do i find those things and do i need an st50 screen or can i use a different...

    Navico's broadband radar (3G) looks like a great technology. I'm wondering if any members have views on any of the following: 1. For a low coast solution the HDS5 seems like a good entry level (AU$800) screen to use, but with such a low resolution (480x480) is this a problem? 2. I have a...
