I recommend Niall Falconer of Quay Marine Fairlie, 07787 803409 or 01475 568624.

Don't get me wrong, I'm proud to be a Luddite. Sometimes I can see the advantage in addopting these new fangled ideas though. DaveS, with an MMSI number you can call someone on VHF and the message only goes to them from you. When they answer you can chat without anyone else listening in. The set wi...

Re: Raymarine autopilot parts

My Garmin 4008 gets its heading info from the Raymarine heading sensor (fluxgate) via the autopilot course computer, Marpa etc works fine on the Garmin Radar and overlays, I guess the appropriate sentence must be available on seatalk.
