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.

    Hi, Ben(s). I am still a year or two out from purchasing our “retirement” trawler. I am quite interested in boat electronics. I wonder if Panbo could put together representative low, medium and high cost complete electronics packages for retrofit to trawlers. I would prefer to buy a boat with a completely updated package. On the other hand a boat in good condition with outdated electronics would give us the opportunity to install exactly what we would like to have (cost being a big factor). I will look forward to your response.

      Larry, The rate at which these machines are being developed mean you’re likely wasting some of your time looking at specific models. 2 years from now there will be lots of new products to choose from and many current models will be discontinued.
