Favini and I talked about the merits, problems, and availability of having electronics on a smaller boat. Due to the drop in complexity and price over the last decade, we’ve seen an influx of electronic instruments on smaller (less than 32 feet) racing sailboats. We now even see Melges 20s with dual B&G displays, plus GPS units, such as a Velocitek. The displayed information includes boat speed, heading, heel, SOG (speed over ground), and more. That is a lot of information for a 20-foot boat!
