True. But I'm sure someone on here could help with a bit of laminating if you asked....

...and I'd swap the magnetic compass and the Fusion head unit when I was at it too.

IMO, the compass is no use to either party where it is and the navigator will be reaching over your instruments to twiddle with the toons.

Ally is easier. TIG a plate in, grind it back, fill and paint. Easy peasy.

Unless your TIG welding is a lot better than mine, I'd rather chuck a few drinking vouchers at a bloke who does it every day.

Is he taking DD with him!

I think willks vhf posn is much better. Having the VHF easy for the navigator to reach is very helpful if you need to drive and call (e.g. responding to an incident, or trying to call the HM whilst making a tricky approach on a falling tide).
