Please donít burst Mr Prawns bubble he is in full fantasy mode here and really doesnít want a reality check to spoil his day

Back on thread (well almost) what priority are your setting for the plotter have you got a VHF and back up and have you done any navigation courses the reason I ask is that it worries me that a lot of people (me included) rely heavily on our electronics without the practical skills to back then up Now this is not necessarily a bad thing in itself, I am sure that since calculator have been around people make less mistakes, but without the basic knowledge you donít know if what you are seeing on the screen is right or wrong Des

quite aree, I suppose its beter to buy the chart plotter first then the rib to fit the plotter. Why cant we have a photo of 'super rib"??

For my twopennies worth go for Garmin ANYDAY ( I have the 2010c and will post a photo soon for clarity. US price is 1990$ and you can get this down to about 1600$. I can bring it in from the states at about 11% on top of the uS price if anybody interested.

It means you can have displays all over the place if you wish - handy on a Sunseeker.

The one thing I would REALLY like for the RIB would be the video input - it would be cool to have an infrared camera attached to the A frame for night use - stealth mode here we go!!!!
Over here Simrad have a CCTV option

REKRAP. Good to see you are turning the clock back! The c120 range is very good value for money but the E series is something else. Everyone Northof the border is changing to the E series. It is perfection and you can plug your DVD into it!

Catch you late

What do you mean "not very good at travelling"??? Use quite a lot by the military for that very purpose!!! As ccd devices are very sensitive to infrared it doesn't need much power for good illumination - my nvgs only have a 75mw IR output and yet the beam reaches about 500 yards!!!
