You're Looping in the digital age! There is more information at your finger tips than Loopers could have dreamed of 20-years ago. But how do you know what electronics you need for the Great Loop, and how do you ensure the different components work together? Is an upgrade to your boat's electronics mandatory, or can you make due with what you have? What are the marine electronics "must haves" vs. the "luxuries"? How do you stay "connected" while Looping?
The multitude of marine electronics options means Loopers have more questions than ever before regarding the best way to use them. We're pleased to offer this Marine Electronics webinar series to help you determine what technology you need for your Great Loop. Expert Ben Stein is your presenter for this comprehensive marine electronics seminar.
