Thanks for all the feedback. Im Considering the tablet option so that I can have one device mounted to helm for navigation, music apps and whatever else I may decide to run. Seems as though it would be a clean easy to use set up.
There are some guys building a specialty tablet for use on...
Just acquired a First 285 with wheel steering. Traveler and main sheet are on the cabin top on this model. I would like to move controls back to the helm. Does anyone have a layout that works for this?
Excuse my ignorance on this subject. I have no knowledge or experience with marine GPS Guidance. I am starting to do some coastal cruising my area doesn’t have strong cell service. Would a tablet with cell capability and navionics app. Work as my navigation system?
I recently acquired a Beneteau First 285 and need a new headsail. I will be doing some beer can racing however most of my sailing is just cruising around the bay. Predominate winds around 8-11 knots.
Normally it will be myself and one or two crew. So total weight around 500lbs.
