Orange peel is usually due to the much thicker clearcoat layer, which doesn't lay flat like the basecoat (applied in proper lightness anyway). That's why you really need to wet sand the clear coat to...

Lost Dog Cafe on Folly (several blocks off the beach off the main street onto the island) is perfect - dogcentric and you can bring dogs to outside seating.

A sub fundamentally changes (positively) the sound class. Properly placed/installed, it's akin to the difference in quality from music on your iphone speaker to a quality bluetooth speaker.

This is why I never leave my boat at a restaurant where I can't watch - and protect - it from inexperienced twits. However, don't know anyone would have been able to do much in a scenario as yours.

I didn't put an AIS receiver in my boat and wish I had, so I upgraded to a SH GX2200 AIS receiver and interfaced it to my NAV. That Simrad referenced above is a great deal for sure and I'd go with...

Spend a couple hundred or so to have an attny send them a letter. That bumps it up the chain a level (negotiating authority increases as you go up the chain) and indicates you're not likely to allow...

Your insurer should have no problem subrogating this for you. I.E. they handle the claim and then, as suggested by others above, 'fight' the adverse party's carrier (Allstate). That may or may not be...

If you have a GX1700 now, the 2200 is maybe a quarter in. taller than the 1700, as I recall. I replaced my 1700 w.2200 a few weeks ago and had to widen the cutout. Whatever they are, dimensions are...

Can't speak to other brands, but with Standard Horizon's recent units (I think 2017 forward) - a call to the manufacture's tech support can verify - can reset MMSI #s with a remote reset code secured...

I prefer SH and find the interface intuitive and comfortable. Just replaced the 1700 on my 225 with the 2200 simply because the latter is AIS.

I have an over-top on my 225. Yes, it has to go over the antenna (laid down) and nav light (also laid down), but I don't find it problematic. I do have to walk atop the gunwales to fold it up / roll...
