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.

    Actuallly I worked on a yacht in 1984 owned by a group which was selling a bigger chart plotter which ran off the old satellite system- I think it may have been calle a NAVTECH unit- the company was based out of Portsmouth NH and I remember the prices were over $17,000 at the time…I know the Navy bought a few and they were fitted onto several large yachts as well. Thought you might like another trivia point!
    Best,
