Default GPS/FF/ maybe more

I have a 23 parker SE and am looking to upgrade the electronics. Have a Garmin 276, lowrance X97 that might keep as backup and a Raymarine basic VHF. Would be looking for a larger screen GPS/FF/maybe Satellite weather/ and maybe radar down the road, and could flushmount in console locker. Also would like to relocate a VHF to the console flushmounted to the outside (right of controls), is that crazy. Looking for suggestions. Am I crazy looking at the large screens for the boat??
Thanks for the input (winter project 2007)

A good place for that VHF is overhead. It's easy to see, out of the way and the speaker will broadcast much better than being down low.

Alway's try to find the largest screen that will fit your budget and the space you have available. Bigger is better.
