Jack Meyer, Houston, TX asks:
Hi Scott: The wife and I are about 4 years away from
signing for an N47. If you were starting over with a clean sheet,
what electronics would you go with. My personal taste is to shy away
from all of the flash of 3D this and 3D that, and stick to what will
perform well, and give me the info that I need. Ofcourse,
dependability is the number one concern. I would like to get your
thoughts on the subject. Thanks.
Scott Flanders from Egret responds:
Jack, It is beyond my expertise to give advice on electronics. Our
electronic purchases were governed by budget, not everything we wanted.
What we do have works for us. I will stick by the Standard Horizon VHFs we
installed and the Iridium phone with OCENS software. In our small boat
building business we installed quite a few Standard Horizon VHFs with zero
failures over a period of years. Iridium/OCENS gives great service as well.
