RE: Prop......

Peter, These ultrasonic units have been around for a long time and the facts are, they do not work. There is no science except the faulty kind generated by the sellers, that it does anything except lighten your wallet. This is pretty much snake oil technology, but if you should decide you have to have it, send me 1/2 what you plan to pay for a unit and I will send you a battery operated unit that you can hold in one hand and run off AAA batteries that I guarantee will do as good a job as the more expensive units out there. Chuck

RE: Prop......

Peter B,
Agree with all that has been said here re the ultrasonic units.
There have been a few dud reports on them in our own Cruising Helmsman of recent months.

Yeah, when something sounds too good to be true, (like those Nigerian money sob stories), it usually is exactly that - too good to be true.

RE: Prop......

Actually you did, FF, but you need to send me $500 for the claimant fee.
