I have been thinking a lot about marine electronics lately for three reasons:
- Several members have asked questions in the comments about what electronic gear to buy.
- It looks like our venerable autopilot may have bit the big one and need replacing.
- Our 18 year old Furuno radar has now got to the point that, although it still works fine, parts are no longer readily available, so it’s time to replace it.
So now I’m going to tell you all about the whiz-bang, all-singing, all-dancing, networked electronics package that I’m designing for our boat. And since I’m an electronics technician by trade and have spent most of my working life in high tech fields this is going to be leading edge and way cool!
