After an agonizing several weeks and numerous second thoughts, I finally wrote the obnoxiously large check for my new boat. It is a 27 foot Wooldridge Deep Water Plus (cuddy cabin)pilot house style boat powered by twin 175HP Suzuki outboards. I am outfitting it with Windlass, Wallas stove/heater, suspension seats, extra large tanks, port-side doors (yeah), self-bailing deck and other options I am sure I missed. They are building it in Seattle and I am going there to check on them in a few weeks. It should be here in January and Marita will be using it for the boat show. Now the only thing I am needing to decide is electronics. I did a search on this board and it is devoid of posts on this topic. Can anyone give me some advise as far as what would be good to consider? Here is some basic questions...
1. Radar with open-array or radome? Size and kw?
2. Furuno, Raymarine or Garmin?
3. Integrated or Networked?
4. Best value for size? (Definitely color) Any models recommended?
5. Auto-Pilot system?
I sure would appreciate any words of wisdom as I have very little experience in these matters. Same model of boat that I just ordered.
