More information on Electronics:
Racing or cruising, the right marine electronics and wind instruments can improve your sailing experience. Marine electronics are designed to be rugged and weatherproof. Don't let your boat leave the dock without a handheld VHF to communicate. On the lighter side, waterproof speakers are a great way to enjoy a cruise or get pumped up for a race. Stay on the wind and sailing fast with a wide selection additional sensors, speed and wind instruments, mounting hardware options and accessories.
Navigation instruments are available with either magnetic or GPS heading sensors. Magnetic instruments will always show the direction the boat is pointing, while the GPS relies on the course the boat is traveling. As a result they will differ whenever there is any current or sideways slip. Similarly, speed can be measured as ‘through the water’ with a paddle wheel sensor, or ‘over ground’ using GPS. Sophisticated systems will combine these sensors to provide true wind speeds, VMG, and even depths.
