I have to agree on yachts by owner. They are a sponsor and they give a THT discount. Other than that I can personally vouch for a great price, exceptional service, and they really do go the extra mile to help out and take care of their customers.

Another vote for Yachts By Owner. Their prices are tough to beat.

I see no Furuno Fishfinders at http://www.byownergroup.com

Just ordered a Furuno 582L from www.consumersmarine.com

That is a killer price on a Garmin 2006C from http://www.marine-electronics-unlimited.com/
$1354.95 That's about what it should cost. I just paid $1699.00

I just ordered a X-ducer and fairing block for my Mako and the Furuno 582L
The Furuno part # is 525T-HDD. That unit is made by Airmar and their model # is the B260.

I did all my reaserch last night finding who had it and their prices.
Gem Electronics that is listed on the Airmar site as a distubritor had the best price.
$465 for the X-ducer. That's about $30 to $55 cheaper than anyone else. I also got a price on
the fairing block. $195. That's about $15 cheaper than anyone else.

It kills me to pay $195 for a dang piece of plastic.

The X-ducer is
# 1,000 Watts Power
# 50/200 kHz with Diplexer
# 20/6 degree Beam Angles
# Bronze Thru-Hull with Temperature
# 10-Pin Connector

I think you just found the holy grail of transducer sites. I can't find a website for Gem, can you post it on here?

I am going to start buying my stuff from them!

Ordered a Furuno FF from MEU on Monday and through UPS tracking, found out that they shipped on Monday. Standard shipping but I think the FF is already waiting for me at home! Two days!
