Note to the Reader

The Gallery above should give some idea as to to understanding of  and variety of systems than one has to work with.  As these systems change their language and interface platforms from series to series or model to model, there is much reading and phone time spent in getting one system to talk to another. Special interface boxes are often either made up or bought off the shelf to allow the systems to function correctly.

Custom Setup

Our custom setups make your new equipment easy to use.

Today’s marine electronics is all about interfacing, and I know from my experience how those features work.

Let me guide you and show you how to make the best of your new installation.

We’ll configure the equipment to work together.

Regardless of your requirements and vessel constraints my experience and network of  marine technical contractors with whom I work will get the job done.

From design to installation you are in good hands even if I have to do the entire job myself.

I am available for global installations and am happy to work with local sub-contractors on time-based projects.

Integration & Complete Helm Upgrades


Did you evaluate all the equipment and decide the best thing to do is start over?

Let us help you to work that out.

This is a big decision and it affects many parts of the electrical installation throughout the boat.

We can update and in the process improve the safety of the boat and its crew. A new electronics package will give your helm that new boat look and feel!


These are straight forward installations, however, the position and location is important from a use point of view and the equipment connection and wiring. 

I always try and ascertain how a person uses his boat and in the case of a radio, if he uses the radio for permanent weather up dates or only occasionally, and rather uses his cell the location on the dash is going to be different. Also, external speakers and intercom interface features all play a roll in the decision on the type of equipment and how it is installed.
