Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    I just can’t believe what a crummy job they did of the mounting. Perhaps a Garmin engineer should get into a bosun’s chair just once.
    Having said that, I just don’t see the point of their marine instruments in any case. They basically don’t bring much to the market, and are generally a risky proposition, as their line is limited. For less money, just pop on the standard Raymarine St series, and you have a fully supported product that 80% of the market uses.
    It is true that the raymarine masthead is not N2k, but for that matter neither is the century-old B&g design. The question is why would you mix and match wind sensors with other display heads? I can see the N2k being useful for barometers, temp sensors, but not wind.
