My first post ! I did read through the forums before posting.
I just took the plunge of pursuing my sailing dreams and bought a 1992 down in Mexico from the original owner. Overall very nice condition but needing to be upgraded. It has the original ST4000 gages, which either don't work or can't been seen due to old LCD display (autopilot does still work). I'm looking at going to a 3 across pod but would greatly appreciate suggestions for gages (Raymarine or Garmin), and any other tips that would make this project go well. Comments on my plan are appreciated.
For the 3 across pod I'm looking at the following configuration: (1) Wind (2) Depth & Speed combo (3) Keep the currently autopilot to limit expenses, unless it would make more sense do to that now.
Also, is there a suggestion for what to do with the lower platform that holds 2 lower gages?
