Looks really good, been a long difficult job but it may be all worth it , I hope so. Will be interesting to see wether the passenger bridge works well.

I fitted an Aerogen 4 a year or two ago and its been a superb bit o kit, I found that sailing single handed a lot and using the auto helm a bit, that I sometimes had to leave it off when sailing a longish passage, they do use a bit of juice especially on a heavy helm like a Victoria. The Aerogen sol...

I looked at this last year before I eventually bought a plumbed in chartplotter. I wanted to see if I could get charts to install on my XDA orbit phone. It certainly was possible and I believe that Maptech would have been the best bet, they also have the handhelds to take the charts. However when it...
