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

    Hi Ben, Your thoughts on the best inexpensive and dependable GPS to replace 12 year old Garmin that I was happy with, but antenna crapped out and I wonder about the need for hard-wired antenna on a boat like VALENCIA (S&S, 1958 sloop). I need it at the helm for lots of single-handing. What do you like?

  2. New digital switching products from Simarine and VeeThree are interesting

  3. Checked: Simarine expected in January (the prototype only is on the booth), VeeThree in July (but already had working product on both booths).

    Was glad to meet you, Ben!

      Sorry it was so brief, Aleksandr, and I kind of wish that METS was four or five days long. I did get a chance to meet the Simarine crew and will hopefully be testing their battery/current monitoring system, but I did not catch up with VeeThree. Lots of interesting things happening!
