It’s surprising how quickly we got used to having our Raymarine E7D
and how emotionally lost we were when it stopped working…
In the meantime we used our seamanship skills
with the help of our iPad
…I know – yet another electronic crutch,
but that’s just the way we are.
(at the advice of a boat friend,
we downloaded a great app for the iPad from
Navionics that works very well.
He uses iNavx,
but since we have the Navionics card in our GPS
we went with that option.
Now we have another back-up plan
should one of our many ‘tools’ fails us again)
….the Captain is happy…
