    VC17. The guys at the marina say that the boats with original VC17 come out of the water the cleanest - better than either the red or blue colored VC17 for some reason. I put Black Widow on my keel and rudder last season and didn't see any better performance than VC17. I didn't get BW quite as polished as it could have been and that may have been a contributing factor. This wrenching season I'm going to apply a few more coats and polish to 2000 grit and automotive polish.

    Garmin Chartplotter networking.

    I've been looking into this too. As I understand, the Garmin Network is separate and unique from N2K network. The N2K will share any information that is supported by published PGNs and recognized by the chartplotters you have.

    Did you sand per instructions? hand sand or machine? I've got my 3 coats on keel and rudder and need to burnish.

    Hey, congrats on the new boat. It's the former British Soldier, correct? I'm excited that there are now 4 boats in the PHMac. Hope we can get a few more. Not sure of your schedule, but PHYC hosts an overnight race on July 4th weekend that's a great tune-up race for the Mac.

    Can you provide instructions on what you did to fix? I have the same issue.

    Got it. Thx. Installed and working. What I meant was for the Tactic plugin. I have now got that (Tactic) running as well. It's just not yet released as a stable version and included in the standard set of plugins.

    Often the problem w open source. The tech docs are poor. It is after all volunteer time. Add up your hourly rate and determine if Expedition is less expensive. It was by far for me. I hear you. I've been avoiding Exp due to the tariff and looking at open source off and on for a few years. Always seems to disappoint so this is last shot.

    Windows 10 machine Yeah, compiling isn't easy. What OS are you building for, and I'll have a go On a Surface Pro with Windows 10.

    Looks like there is a tad bit of programming knowledge to compile and build a new executable. Can you describe the specific steps to take? The notes in github are not very helpful.

    I also switched to the 0608 cams. Worked fine since.

    OK, for what you describe for top of the line gear, etc. that's about in the ball park. Hope you included the professional bottom prep :-) Almost consider selling mine at that price - on second thought, no. Having too much fun with it. Hope he can find a boat soon. Great to see the fleet grow. Maybe the Nationals there next year.

    Go with the J88....like a modern Mumm. Love the boat...$165K ALL in This! Cant wait to launch our 88. So what does "all in" include and how does that compare to Charliegolf's undefined half million?
