      Hi Chris, Glenn here(Billyclub). I sent you an email a few days ago and want ted to reach out to you on the forum. We talked last fall about the radar for my HDS8. We determined tbhat the Lopwarance 3kw would work just fine. Can you message me so we can get a price and get this ordered. Or you can email me at glennpangell@yahoo.com.
      Thanks Chris, talk with you soon.

      Chris, Osprey47 (Joe) here. I am planning on adding autopilot to my BHM36 currently with National Marine dual cylinder quadrant, a Chr-Lynn steering pump and 14gal hydraulic tank and Faria rudder angle indicator. I am looking at Simrad AP28 with AC42, RC42 and an RP160 pump.
      Three questions: Can I expect any complications with installation/operation given the steering system? I am located in Chesapeake Bay; can you recommend someone to do the installation? and, finally, Can you beat Defender pricing? Thanks! joe

      Hi Chris, Dogbar(Jim) here. can you give me any info on Garmin Panoptix? Seems like lots of freshwater use but not much when I look for offshore. The Garmin guys aren't much help either. Give me a call or email at Jim@dogbar.biz. Thanks Jim

      Hi Chris, this is Following C my name is Chris also. I have a robertson Ap 45 autopilot and I am in need of a new rudder feedback model RF 45. Wondering if you might have access to one. New on eBay over $600, maybe a rebuilt unit?

      Hi,
      I see that garmin has come out with its latest line and I was wondering what happened to all the old working display stuff that everyone has replaced. I have a 4212 now and would like something similar in size so I can run charts and sonar on different screens but I don't really have it to kick in for a new one. Do these get wholesaled somewhere? Can you pick these up on the cheap?

      Thanks,
      Steve

      Chris, wanted to reach out to you for some advice/pricing on doing an electronic upgrade. I am thinking of purchasing/installing 2 garmin 1040xs and the gcv10 sounder along with a radome either 18 or 24. Any advice would be recommended. I like the down vu capability and the chirp technology. Thank you, Brian Dailey

      check out thread "LED" lighting, last page , from oldshell, precision . thanks for getting the lights for john at al/johns for me. their good people. Al is top shelf outboard mechanic, second generation, who takes care of my Evinrude's, his father (RIP) did work for me in the 70's, loyalty is everything to me as you will see. The AP works great and as planned does the work of driving the boat while I do other task's, I think i'll call it jose'. call me when the furuno is in. thanks Larry

      Wharf Rat Chris -
      I would like to send you a note about my MFD needs and ask for your recommendations/quotes, but it is close to 3K char. rather than the 1K limit here. Do we have another option?

      Sorry for the delay, we close the last week of December and come back on Jan 3rd, and have been putting together all the boat show paperwork along with ALL the end of the fiscal year reports and have been just swamped. There is the issue we spoke about with the C140W's 'Uniball' control that I can't stand, plus the lack of factory availability, and I'm waiting on 2013 pricing to drop so I can see where we stand. I have in mind a few options, but would like to speak a little bit more to put together some solid package ideas to get you the solid pricing on the Boat Show program, which is the first week of Jan. When you get this, please call me on my cell at 914-433-0249. I'm home now, had to head North to spend a few days with the family. The key is getting you a 1kw transducer and sounder setup that will provide the best performance at the depths you'll be fishing. Talk to you in a bit,

      Chris
