Westbay Sonship 54 - "Casa Mia"

The electrical system on Keith’s 54-foot Westbay SonShip, Casa Mia, was twenty years old and in need of upgrading. In fact, PYS found that three layers of navigation systems had been installed in the boat, one on top of another.

Before doing anything else, PYS took the time to remove all the abandoned wiring, to avoid any unnecessary complications. Then they designed and installed a new Raymarine navigation system, complete with dual C120 widescreen Multifunction Displays (MFDs), open-array HD 4KW radar, X-30 autopilot, Standard Horizon Matrix 2100 automatic identification system and VHF radio, DSM 300 sounder, and GPS. PYS even installed rear-view and engine-room cameras, integrated into the MFDs. These are especially useful on boats of this size; Keith can now see his most important blind spots while he is at the helm.

"PYS was very helpful and their workmanship was excellent," says Keith, an electrician. "PYS certainly know their stuff."

Keith cruises the BC coast quite extensively. Having an integrated and simple-to-use navigation system, with various PYS-designed system redundancies, allows him to extend his cruising range with confidence.

In the end, PYS touched every aspect of the Casa Mia's entire navigation system. As a result, Keith now finds boating to be much easier and more enjoyable.
