Well,

After much thinking, I decided to go all Simrad for my little 23ftcc.. Heres what I came up with.

NSE12
BSM1
Sonic Hub
WX Module
GS15 Antenna
4g Radar
RC42 Compass
Structure Scan with Ducer
B-164 down imaging transducer..

Now I need some time to fish:huh:

Joe Electronics looks excellent what did you end up buying? I thought you might go for the 23T Onslow Bay, best of luck with whatever you bought I'm sure you picked a great rig out. You trailering it or getting a slip? Just make sure you get out there and use it and we;ll see you on the water. Ron

I think it all depends on what you are used to. After having a Northstar unit on one boat and a Lowrance on my other boat, upgrading to the Simrad NSE (which is actually the best of both Northstar and Lowrance), it seems pretty user friendly to me. While I needed to review the manual for installation and networking, actual day to day operation never seems to require a check of the manual.

Hey Capt. Joe,

Best of luck with the new electronics. I put the Simrad NSE 8 on my scow last year and I love it. Simple to use, extremely accurate and awesome graphics. Lots of luck with your rig.

I was told 4 g is needed to overlay the radar on the chart plotter screen.

Yup! Those little 4G units are bad ***... Thats some heavy gear for a 23fter brotha...:thumbsup: Stucture Scan is nothing short of amazing...:thumbsup:

So how did that boat run when you seatrialed it? Never have been on one.
STeve
I fished on one 2 years ago and was impressed on how it rode for a 23ft boat.. Then again Im use to small boats so anything might be better...lol

We fished out of AC and the seas were 2-4ft but the boat ran over it like it was a 1 ft chop.. I never got a chance to drive it my self but I'm sure I'll like it..

Aside from price, how come you went the 23 over the 25? Just curious? Only asking cuz the 25 is on my list for a possible upgrade, id like to have a better fishing station behind the helm.

I wanted to stay at or Below 50k.. I wanted the 25 but it was 15k more, which isn't much.. but more then I wanted to spend..

The 25 is very nice..
