We have the tough charts of round Anglesey which are really good. Christ, no one had GPS/Plotters in the past..... surely you remember back then Chris!

I appreciate they are useful, don't get me wrong. But I and the old man have better things to spend 500+ on. I don't think it will detract from our current boating experience.

Having DSC though is v useful i feel. Plus having SOG and COG is a bonus.

icom isn't out yet, so it may have to be the horizon, though it's the wrong shape.

Pikey Dave - When is the boatshow? ie when is it being launched?
oh yes Paul, I well remember not having a chartplotter, I also remember cross ply tyres n I wouldn want to return to those days either!! yes, I too carry paper charts on both ribs, but trying to read one a speed on a open rib is a skill I have yet to develop, but maybe that's just cos I'm very old

I like the paper charts for planning days out while have a beer or two, I've laminated various bits which are useful when trying to identify landmarks while on the water, but the chartplotter is brilliant when covering long passages, I wouldn't be without one now, even if it was just a handheld unit, I've fitted my old Garmin 276c to the Searider, still does the business after years of sterling service in the landrover
