I know the margins are probably slim but what's the general markup on say a Garmin or Lowrance Sounder/Finder in general?

Off full retail there's a decent margin. If u go online and find the lowest price its less than 10 percent unless they get bigger discount for bulk purchasing then it may be a tad more but not much

I wouldn't be surprised if the place up the street is making next to nothing.. He probably is getting it through a regional marine supply warehouse. A buy online store probably is buying them cheaper than the regional distributors.
