"What business? I get a couple of calls a month and they're usually wrong numbers," he grumbled. It seems dividers, parallel rules and paper charts have all suffered the same fate. I still have reams of moldy editions stuffed under the salon sofa that I dig out when we cruise, but I confess that I rarely look at them. I have come a long way from flasher sounders and paper-chart recorders — Anhinga's electronics package includes a 3.5 kW sounder, a 72-mile radar and plotting software, all networked to two 10-inch displays. I made the $18,000 investment in 2004 and my electronics pals tell me the stuff's already out of date. I'll admit, compared with the compact $900 unit on our new Hewes, Anhinga's electronic charts look like they were drawn with a crayon.
