Marine instruments enable the sailor to measure and plot various aspects of
his on-the-water experience in real time. Typically these include performance
indicators such as wind speed and direction, boat speed and heading, and depth.
More sophisticated systems can then take these basic measurements and calculate
and display additional information such as true and apparent wind speed, course
over ground, speed over ground and much more. Marine instruments are generally
a combination of sensor, processor and a relatively small display unit or dial
which can be mounted both above and below deck.
Prices and capability vary widely depending on capability. Top end systems
can interface with sophisticated tactical software programs to use the
performance data to calculate the most efficient way to navigate a race course
in any set of prevailing conditions.
Good quality marine instruments are rigorously tested to withstand all
environmental and climate conditions. They are silicone sealed to guarantee
water tightness and come with sun protection covers to reduce glare and prevent
over-heating. These unobtrusive yet essential instruments are generally easy to
install in any type of craft and sailors find them invaluable - whether sailing,
motor cruising, fishing or racing.
