At least the USCG will not be turning off the earth's magnetic field anytime soon.

Old Radar?

We have a ancient Furuno radar on our GB32, probably put on the boat early in its life, after 1987. Works great. It picks up buoys, small boats with any metal, and landforms. Keep your radar if it works, toss the Loran. If you want to upgrade radar go to Doppler Radar, the real cats pajamas.
