Cheers Jambo. That's the conclusion I came to so, thanks. To be fair, the boatyard said the same for leisure use. Just need Barrus to send us the right engine now . Hope you're well.

We’ve networked the two screens so you can have a multiple choice of info, charts, sonar, ais, engines etc etc spread over both the displays - gone for navionics for the mapping
So far we’re impressed with the Simrad and the Merc vessel view, Should be floating in the next week or so and looking forward to using the new electronics in anger.
Oh, got a Garmin 5008 (3years old ), transducer and gateway box ( converts engine data for displaying on plotter ) looking for a new home

The 5008 was original fitment on the boat (2010), however it was replaced with a refurbished unit from Garmin about 3 seasons ago - we just fancied an upgrade this season and that idea developed into running two screens / VV and dropping the traditional style dials
