$4000-$5000 Electronics budget
« on: May 30, 2010, 07:07:28 AM »
Hello all, New to the site and would like some advice.  I am currently purchasing a new boat 2001 200sx Skeeter and I want to completely redo the electronics.  This is my first boat and I don't know as much as I would like to about SI, but have been reading a ton.  I would like an expert to provide me the equipment I would need to have the optimal package.  I do plan on buying one 1197 for sure, but wanted to see everything else I would need in order to provide the best use of my electronics.  I am also going to have my install done by a professional and have no idea what it costs so if you could include a estimate for that it would be greatly appreciated.   Thank you in advance

I have a 788CI on the bow and a 898 si on my console.  I also wanted the interlink.  I purchased the units through my marine dealer.  Installation was $35 per hour.  It took 2 hours.  You can find the units cheaper elsewhere.  However, I already had a problem with the 788ci and my dealer replaced the charge.  He also indicated that if I not happy with the installation, he would make any change at no cost to me.  So far, the installation is working fine.
