Choosing Marine InstrumentsAre you looking to buy new sailing navigation tools or a complete navigation system bundle?
Maybe you have a newer boat that you want to upgrad the instruments or it?s time to replace your old navigation system with a brand new.
Like with most technology, there have been a lot of amazing changes to marine instruments over the last few years.
Before you decide which boat instruments to buy, you'll want to take a good look at your boat and how you use it.
That will help determine which functions you actually need and how they will make for a better boating experience.
What Type of Boat Do You Have?A powerboat will have different instrument needs than a sailboat.
They type and size of a sailboat will require different sailing instruments and tools.
A cruising sailboat can probably get by with just a wind speed instrument, depth finder, and maybe a boat speed instrument.
A racing sailboat will need a full suite of integrated instrumentation to optimize its chances of winning.
A powerboat can get by with a depth gauge and boat speed indicator.
If it's on a long cruise, a wind speed instrument and temperature gauge are nice additions.
That temperature gauge can even tell you when you've entered (or exited) the Gulf Stream!
