Electronic Installation Cost
Just bought new Garmin electronics (radar and two chartplotters with peripherals) for about $6.5k from a marine nav systems company. Could have gotten them cheaper on internet. Was quoted $1,700 for install plus travel time. Company said if I wanted to install myself they would offer email and telephone support at any time. So far, best deal I have done and well worth the difference in price over the internet vs the approx 10% higher price from the company. They have been fantastic with the support at all hours and no matter how many and how detailed the questions. Worst part of the install has been removing the old stuff and snaking new cables. But I now know the innards of the boat more intimately, which is good. Will have to see if it all goes up in smoke when I fire it up but its been fun so far and hopefully I've saved money in the end.
