Sea Legend owners What size chart plotter will fit?
« on: June 19, 2017, 12:29:40 PM »
My wife and I have a new Sea Legend on order and I'm curious from other Sea Legend owners how large of a chart plotter I can put on the dash. I would love to get a Garmin 7612 if it will fit without blocking visibility. What size screens do most of you guys use? Thanks!

I can't directly answer your question, but I made a cardboard mock-up based on the manufacturer-provided dimensions prior to buying a Raymarine e125 (roughly 12.5" horizontal display).  This was installed on my dinky little SR19.

I recommend the biggest screen that will fit.

Thanks Hemi. Yes I want the biggest screen that will fit, mainly for my old eyes. The dealer and I dont know how it will fit and may come down to sizing after the boat arrives, since there are very few Sea Legends sold and not knowing the size of the dash. The last Sea Legend he sold the owner installed a 9 inch.

Lots of different ways to organize electronics- this was our set up on our SL 22.  Newer displays have more screen, less controls which is nice

Thank you both very much. I really want the 12 inch and it appears it fits! Our boat will come very much the same with the hardtop, alaskan bulkhead, galley and dinette. It's so hard when we ordered and couldnt see one in person. We know we are buying the right boat for us but outfitting is in question. Your answers really helped me. Thank you again, much appreciated!

If you can fit in a 12" do it!
I bought a Garmin 4208 (8") for my '07 SL and realized later at least a 10" in that series would have fit.  With age (mine) that screen seems to be getting even smaller.
