NAVIGATION

Navigation is made easy with the help of a Simrad Robertson AP 20 autopilot, a Garmin 441s chartplotter with Caribbean charts along with CDs of Offshore Navigator software and Maptech electronic charts for the Cariibbean and east coast of the US. These are supplemented with paper charts for the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and the eastern US coast as well as cruising guides for the same areas. Two BU-535S4 ‘puck’ GPSs can connect to any computer navigation program. There are three Garmin handheld GPSs (Garmin 76, Garmin 72H and Garmin 72). The cockpit has DMI wind instrument, depth sounder, knot meter displays and a binnacle C-Plath compass.  There’s a Furuno Model 1800 radar display at the navigation station.  The bow and stern running lights are Aqua Signal as are the mast head anchor and running lights.
