I have access to a cc for awhile before a buddy takes it to Baja for good. However, it has no electronics (i.e. gps, sounder etc.) It has the basic stuff like radio, compass and all required safety gear. I want to take it out but have never been the "captain" in the salt. I do mostly private trips with the owner of this boat, but he has other boats, so I have never been out on this one. Can anyone give some good sound advise on how to approach this opportunity and what things I should add to the boat without spending a bunch $$. My thought is to not venture too far for a trip or two. P.S. Launching from Channel Islands harbor.
