I was Chetco's 1st Australian installation some 8 years ago. I can assure you that you won't miss the analogues!

Wow!! Beautiful.

How about a total cost estimate, include labor time and misc expenses.

It's definitely not for me. Temp, Tach and oil pressure is all I need. In my case, it's a forty year old tub. Lets not get too sophisticated.

Something about putting lipstick on a pig. In my case the forty year old trawler is still just a forty year old trawler and it would confuse the owner.

Pete, this project can be as cost effective or cost intensive as you wish it to be. In my case, I already had a repainting/redo of the upper helm in the priority to-do list, so it was as inexpensive as it could have been.

Our configuration is tach/ volts/ oil pressure/oil temp for twin engines, and will be interfacing fuel flow and usage later.

Assuming you have MFDs that are NMEA 2k compatible, the only parts that are really needed:



When you call Chetco, Joe (owner, designer, tech support) and his team will walk you thru the layout and configuration- ans endure each and every question you may have. They have excellent customer support, and are located in Oregon- so all is US made and supported.
