You'll love it. I put one on my Sea Pro 220 a year ago. If its you're first time with radar there is a book called "Radar For Mariners" by David Burch that is very good at telling you how to get the most out of it. I got it Amazon.com for about $14 and learned alot from it.

Been there done that. The trick is to build up to it by convincing them that all that $hit you want to buy is "safety" related. I added a second fixed mount VHF to the boat today, she didn't bat an eye...but she feels safer already.
