Instruments

  • Raymarine

    • 7 display on both helms

    • 12 Pro display on center console

    • All of the Raymarine screens are very bright and clear.  You will be amazed how good these look even in the mid-day sun!

    • All displays are configurable and can show one or more pieces of information

    • I found the Raymarine screen layouts a bit bewildering the first week I used it.  For the life of me I could not figure out how to get the wind information up on the screen.  In case you too have this issue here are the instructions:

      • From the home page press on the "Dashboard" icon​

      • From the dashboard screens there is a left/right steppter button in the lower left/right corner of the screen.  Press them to swap pages.  You should arrive at the wind dashboard shown where i have the apparent wind speed/angle on the right side and the true wind speed on the left side.  Also on the left side is the rudder angle and the speed over ground.  In the right bottom corner is the water depth.

  • Chain counter at the helm (port side)

     
    • No need to shout at your mate on the bow.  You'll know how much chain you have out for the anchor

  • An additional I70s 4.1 inch display

    • Normally this is set to show depth and speed but can be changed to show any data item

  • Radar

  • Auto-pilot

  • VHF at helm and Saloon

  • AIS Transeiver

    • Huh?

      • The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automatic tracking system used on ships for identifying and locating vessels.  Fat Bottom Girl can both receive and send AIS information
