Default Good electronics guy???

Im looking for a talanted guy that can evaluate the electronics i have, make suggestions, and do a clean install all for a reasionable price. I have mostly Garmin and Garmin Networked stuff. We are talking about monitor, sounder, radar, xm weather and stereo. The boat is a Hydra Sports 2600CC in central FL.

I cant tell you how many electronics guys I've been through, never with much success mostly frustration. I am in SW FL and recently found SeaTech. I know they advertise that they work in collier, lee and charlotte. Might be worth a call to see if they'll travel a little further. My dealings with them thus far have been nothing but positive and they really seam to know their stuff. Good luck.

I just had Bethel Marine Electronics in Rockledge/Merritt Island/Cape Canaveral install my radar, auto-pilot, and E120wide. Good price, work was done deligently and no problems. In fact, I had a problem, which they had no responsibility for, and they helped me tremendously to solve it by getting Raymarine actively ionvolved. Raymarine was super also. Raymarine was also not involved in my problem but helped a huge amount. Someday I may get into the issue, but I wholeheartedly recommend these people and most definately Raymarine.

I have heard, second hand, good things about Bethel as well.When passing through there, I called them about an issue, but it turned out I solved it myself.

But how exactly do you define "reasonable"? None of the places mentioned may meet your definition. I have found that the most reasonable techs are those that do it right, back it up, and offer advice free from then on. Cheap ones, you usually get what you pay for and the long term costs are high.
