Ian, what have you chosen in the way of GPS/Plotter(s)?

Garmin 126 (the one with the integral twig). I have been delighted with the 128 on my old rib and have no need for a plotter in the role the new one will perform and the money could be better spent on seating etc. Jason spec'd the DCS and sonar.

Sorry Richard, it's late and I missed that bit. But is Paul now a PS distributor do you know? Charles posted earlier he was and that Charles himself was the Jersey agent.

Steve, just wait 'till you've spent next summer on the water... the beemer will be in the Auto Trader and the Scorpion 8.5 will be on order

(Your wife will probably have divorced you though!)

A bit less than I could buy here even when adding the vat but he will fit all electronics you buy from him for nothing, and a very very neat job they make of this.
Best give some thought to electronics before you go, you need to know what you want and then discuss the suppliers with him. He'll give you ideas as well and you'll probably come away with a totally different spec. to the one you leave home with on Saturday morning to catch you CHEAP flight.

Don't buy it off Amazon. That's more than I am paying.
DCS is Jason's spec. I asked him as I didn't have a preference. Only the 126 I spec'd as I didn't want another twig that breaks when some heavy handed diver can't be bothered to stand up to take the dive flag down.

I love the swivel twig with the radio though. Great when trailoring about.
