Carbon came from a company over in warsash. They had made it with the tooling from cougar. Had a quote from one company at 800 quid for like for like replacement!!!

It's not perfect but it cost 200 so can't complain!!! Let me know if you want the details.

Just been playing with the plotter and the route planning is easy but finding the saved routes is a bit hidden!!

Me thinks a carbon vinyl wrap may be quite a bit cheaper!!!

just to update this.

Have now installed AIS receiver which displays on both screens, Engine trim sensor so we can see outdrive trim level on the plotters and got my hands on the G2 vision chart chip too!

Spent the day cleaning and polishing the boat so its all ready for the summer hopefully!
