Looking for advice about how to add basic electronics to 25 ft sailboat with goal of (1) avoiding making holes in boat (esp thru hull for depth) (2) not breaking my bank account.
Was thinking tacktic/raymarine b/c wireless/no holes for instrument to sensor wires. But: (a) expensive (b) would have to rig thru hull depth as in-hull (which lots of folks claim can be done).
Then, was thinking ray marine i70s b/c snazzy color display and cheaper than tacktick. But: (a) will have to make at least 1 small hole for single wire to instrument gauge and (b) have to rig depth as in-hull rather than thru hull as above.
Was then looking at i70s + Clipper wireless wind + p79 in hull depth sensor connected all via NMEA. Still have instrument small hole though get color single instrument gauge. But: Not sure that these devices esp clipper wireless wind would work with i70s?
Thanks for any advice!
