Ah yes, I remember you sacrificed a grand day's boating to visit the show Gareth - one of the warmest days of the year!
Definitely NOT Raymarine for me. Too many 'iffy' experiences with their kit, albeit 8-10 years ago.
Very rarely find myself over in Hull (although when I'm there I seem to spend serious money, having bought two boats from Hull) but thanks for the heads-up Pikey D.
I think I'm Boat show-bound in January to be honest...
