Finally got the boat back after the re-power and took it out for a couple of hours this arvo at Clifton Springs, I'm very happy with the Suzy, so smooth and quiet and the multi-function gauge is pretty cool. I can't wait for the break in period to be done so I can see what it can do. Naturally I took a couple of rods and drifted off the end of the jetty ruins where it didn't take long to christen her with few Cala's. For a sounder/gps combo I went with a flush mounted Simrad GO7xsr, the glass bridge style looks great and is very easy to use and you can hook it up and control it with a 10" tablet to. Other mods include new cable steering and a stainless wheel, new fuel filter/water separator, wiring tidy up behind the dash and a new battery and switch. I still have many more things on the to-do list though.

Trumpeter , , , , add me to the "Jealous List".

That is one sweet set-up :a_goodjob: . I've never even seen a Multi-function Gauge , , , , but it sounds like "I want one".

Hope it brings you many years of hassle free enjoyment.

Cheers, Bugatti

Thanks for the link, Trumpeter

WOW , , , , wow. They are awesome. Love the interchangeability of the screens and the functions. My set-up is conventional AND basic :(

Now, I definitely gotta get one of those. I might have to settle for a cardboard cutout stuck to my helm.

Cheers, The Bug

It was either going to be a Garmin 75sv or the GO7, both are the same price and seeing I had a 75sv on my last boat I wanted to try something different. The Simrad's smoother to use and quicker, the glass screen's nice and you can use what ever map you like.
