  Two figures sat side by side, staring at the Sea. One said to the other, “You know that one day we will die.” And the other friend replied, “But all of the other days WE WILL LIVE!”

Love my B and g Vulcan, can network it to receive and display wind, heading, depth, stw etc. also expand to take radar and fish finder later. If you have Simrad TP you can control from the display.

On my network it gives me more info than I will ever need including lay lines, wind history, sail steer, tides etc.

Definitely B&G. Model depends on budget and boat size. Basic units start under $1k. PM me if you want me to quote for you....

How do you use your boat? Race, Cruise, etc? What is you main use for it?  Do you have any other instruments on the boat?  What was your last one?
