It is like the inflight map for anyone interested down below!!

LOL! In the near future there’s an AR kit coming, so I will also have a video feed ponying forward. I can run down to make myself a sandwich and still see what’s happening outside :-)

Awesome... the sandwich making came to mind when I saw your setup.  I thought, how perfect!!!  I could make a snack and monitor the radar, chartplotter and AIS. 

Have you watched any of Sail Life on the youtubes?  He mounted a camera at the mast head.  It would be good for spotting underwater obstructions on a very shiny weather day.

Me either. Two of the questions I asked myself when I added Raymarine electronics were even with a bimini, dodger, and connector do I want to plot a course in the weather, and do I want to run more or less wire?

I have always wanted a nav station mounted plotter for route planning in the comfort of the cabin.  In a perfect world, i would gave a wifi enabled chartplotter so I could do the planning on a tablet and then exwcute it from the helm.  That said, I am CONSTANTLY moving about my chart when at the helm to check depths, obstructions etc.  Not having one at my fingertips would be hard to deal with.

The WIFI enabled plotters and their apps for tablets/laptops and phones are great. Paired with a NMEA network you get a lot of options and flexibility.

Chart plotter moved down below, so far don’t miss it up in the cockpit. iPhone with navionics in my pocket at all times anyway. Maybe if I was in an unfamiliar area I would miss it but so far so good.

Love the action shots!!  I'm still working on mine so much so that it can't be sailed.  We have a trip planned for next weekend.  Lot's to do yet, but I can see the finish line!  Can't wait for the first shake down trip.

Another project ticked off my list.

Forward cabin port/starboard USB-c/a charger and power socket.
