Chart plotter and Radio

I  connected the chart plotter to the radio (with AIS) using NMEA 2000 and now the radio and plotter work together  and let me know when ships are around. pretty nice. Plan on adding a depth/speed and wind by B&G as well also  connected with NMEA 2000 when I haul out, and hopefully all will be connected. Technology is pretty scary, dont trust it all. I remember sailing from St Thomas  to Fort Lauderdale using a regular radio as are main navigational system, turn the  radio to a station, turn the radio to get the best reception, use a couple of stations and you get a triangulation, worked for us. that was back in the day

need to get to cool weather for a while,  blue ridge mountain?
