Weather Equipment On Boats

POTDWP_000668

While on my friends boat recently, I noticed these two large LCD screens on the console. “What are these for?” I asked. “Oh they’re GPS and weather information.” Pictured on the left is the GPS.

 

 

POTDWP_000669Upon gazing on the top of his boat, yep sure enough was a marine grade radar! How cool is that! For a mere $6k this could be yours too!

Thankfully there was no precipitation that evening – the echo’s you see on the display are the buildings and land around the edge of the lake we were on. It is possible to tilt up the radar beam and adjust the distance.

I want one!
