B&G instrument replacement


Recommended Posts

The paddle on my B&G Hornet log has died and replacements are no longer available (go figure after only 20 years). Without the paddle other functions have stopped working too so Im considering replacement. I quite like to the look of the Raymarine wireless stuff and the new B&G gear. Neither is cheap for the replacements (wind, speed, vmg etc)  I need so before I go much further wondering what experiences people have with these and others?

I’ve not used B&G as I’m a Raymarine lifer. But I suspect if you’re used to B&G you would find a switch to Raymarine a big step backwards from what I understand (both reliability abs usability). On my latest boat I’ve inherited a Raymarine setup (again) so I’m stuck with it for now but it’s a long way behind the great systems they were in their heyday 20-30yrs ago. Don’t do it would be my advice!

I'm stoked with the B&G great provided by Matt at Neptunes Gear.  
Installed Triton2 Speed/Depth/Wind pack (Wireless) with additional Triton2 displays, and 9" Vulcan.

Customisation and easy to read. All good.

Second that.

Good to have backup point of contact close at hand.

Thanks guys! It just so happens that I currently have a Zeus 3 7 inch on the shelf I'm prepared to do a deal on. RRP is $2500 incl GST. 1st person to make a 1/2 sensible offer on it will own it. You may be surprised what I'll accept!
