Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Whats more exciting to a Panbophile that the back of an instrument panel? Why its a NAKED back of an instrument panel! By the way Ben, can you show us a picture of a hole saw for rectangular cutouts?

    Could you make a short comment on mix and matching display bezel colors! Are any of the greys the same? Maretron has several colors.
    Have two different people with the idea to put one Maretron display flanked by in once case ST70’s and in the other SIMRAD. Don’t have all in hand to compare.
    From your images it looks like the Maretron/Simrad grey might match – but a slight miss could make it better to do Maretron black and Simrad grey? I know its taste.
    The ST70 seems very different from the Maretron black and grey.
    Why you may ask the Maretron – well 1 – it can facilitate setup and 2- the wind pseudo-analog display is sharp and changeable from 360 to 120 range(close haul) as well as it can cycle displays.

    Ben, the Furuno FI-50 offers an optional flush mount kit but you will need one of those square hole saws! Very easy and very neat, the finish and style of the flush mount matches the NavNet 3D MFD perfectly.
