Default New memeber..but long time lurker..looking to buy

Gil,


I have just purchased a 38' Rampage Express...and need a full setup...asap.

Looking at a single Garmin 8624 for the main cockpit and 7616 networked for the upper station.
For radar...your suggestion for a 6 or 12 kw open array.

Want the GSD26 and need you to advise on a transducer for fishing at 1500' to 2500'...we only fish for Swords....so just need a 16 or 25 element unit.


Already have a good VHF..and the GXM53 from my last boat.

Please PM me a quote and your recommendation.
And my neighbor is also looking for new electronics for swords.....will send him your way.

Gil,

Thank you so much for the fast shipping..and a Saturday delivery on my units.
And for your recommendations and expertise that saved me several thousand dollars.

Now I see why so many here recommend you.

Will post photos shortly.

Gil,

My neighbor was out on my boat yesterday and was totally impressed with my setup.
He has a new Ray Axiom and a B164...but cannot get past 500'....while I show good targets at 1500'
Is it the transducer he is using?

The B164 is only a 3 element...and not CHIRP..your neighbor would better off with a B175M
