No exact date yet; "before the end of March" is what we have. Which is fine. Think we're going to try and keep P&J's over the summer if they have room, that way we'll get more use out of her. Being new it shouldn't need quite so much fettling in between runs.

I'm sure P&JS will fit you in Dan, but no harm giving them a call n booking a slot, especially if it's for a nice new rib, looking forward to a having a good look

As it happens, it's unlikely that I'll be at HQ during that period (although I'll be there over the next week or so). Ribochet is in there regularly, 'cos Ricochet lives in the yard. Gary has been known to email the odd photo - but you'll have to keep after him....

as you add kit its a pain unless youve thought in advance and have the backbone allready in place. So for a new build if I were having a new boat I would insist probably on a NMEA2000 backbone plus a decent fused positive and the negative type of terminal buses etc to make a nice installation.

Raymarine do a SeatalkNG (their own connectors but N2K protocol) converter for previous versions of Seatalk if your old network is Raymarine? They also do a pure NMEA0183 converter for older non raymarine too. If it's one of the other networks I'm sure they do similar converters.

The beauty is that once you have the first part of the network it's easy to extend.

Dan, have you decided which electronics you'll be installing?

I was planning on taking a trip to the Excel Boat Show in order to get down-and-dirty with some plotters but I've just had a look at the exhibitors list for the show and Navico/Lowrance/B&G/Simrad, whose NSS (non-touchscreen) plotters are of interest, don't appear on the list? Simrad's website states that they will be exhibiting but I wonder if their presence at the show will be a bloke on (say) the MES Ltd stand?

Garmin and Raymarine have their own stands.

Seriously considering taking a Flybe from Manchester to Dusseldorf for 160 round trip later in the month instead...

Tony, this is why I went to the boatshow at Southampton last year as I wanted to purchase a cheap chartplotter and had already narrowed it down to a short list of 7" screen chartplotters :

1.) Raymarine eD7 (sonar transducer compatible unit) - This was my preferred unit as its a hybrid touch screen unit. However the boat show prices were coming in at over 800 for the unit, plus 150 for the transducer and then over 230 for the navionics chart which I don't believe it is as good as the garmin charts (IMHO). Conclusion was maybe a 100 saving outside boat show remit and an expensive package

2.) Garmin echomap 70s (sonar transducer compatible unit). A full touch screen unit but my console doesn't get that wet as I'm a fair weather boater and Chris Caton has had a Garmin touch screen for a few years and if its good enough for him its good enough for me . Anyway cheapest price I could get at the boat show was 715 for the unit, 100 for the sonar in hull transducer and the Garmin charts I can get at very cheap price . Conclusion was a much more competitive price but only an 85 saving on the garmin unit itself at the boat show.

So as the Garmin echomap 70s was a far more competitive price and as I have used Garmin before I have just bought a new unit from ebay from a company based in the US. Full price including postage and customs charges is 510 and I have just bought the transducer from Cactus marine for 100.

Hope this helps Tony

P.S. Both the Garmin and Raymarine had there own exhibits at Southampton Boat Show but you couldn't buy direct off them at the boat show

Raymarine e7 - wanted hybrid touch control which pretty much rules out Garmin at my size/price point. Redbay offered a good price and I think it's a neat looking unit. If I was retro fitting it would be as toss up between that and the 7" Simrad. Trevor has /had one on Baby Blue that works very well and is hybrid.
