I second BOEMarine. You might find it a few (and I mean a few) bucks cheaper, but Jim is definately great to deal with.

OK, just trying to stir the pot.

I just bought two plotters and a depth sounder from BOE. Best price I could find (including shipping) and a reputable vendor.

BTW: Right now there's a $200.00 rebate on certain Garmin plotters. For me, that's $400.00 back.

I hit a snag installing a Garmin network and visited the BOE store. Jim was in the middle of moving to a better location, but took the time to dig through his piles and boxes to help me out. Next question please!

Jim at BOE. This Spring I bought a Garmin Auto Pilot, Radar and Epirb from Jim. Excellent Service and Pricing.

I searched prices until worn down. Purchased from BOE. Received my unit Wednesday of this week. Just finished installing this afternoon. Had several questions and Jim is top notch at being helpful. Another vote here.

I too am VERY high on BOE. Have also had excellent service/prices in the past from Defender and gpsdiscount.com.

Getfeetwet.com. Save some money by buying a refurb if you don't mind one. See their warranty on refurbs. I just bought a refurbed 540 from them. Looked like new, works great. Big discount.

BOE opened their new store and the Boater's World across the street immediately went out of business

Other marine electronics dealers fear BOE

I'm fairly sure it's their amazing displays

I think you know that's not the reason. The whole chain went out of business.

Sorry to say this but when I was buying my new stuff (furuno),I really wanted to deal with BOE, but he didn't have any real selection.
