    That is probably because they are owned by Garmin who is big time into Marine Depth electronics. I run all Lowrance, but didn't want my graphs to control the radio. Having 2 12" graphs and 2 9" graphs on when just tooling around is a waste of battery and fucntionally since I only stream music from my phone I can use it's volume either by yelling at it or reaching it on the phone mount at anytime sort of making extra stuff on the graphs not worthwhile.

    Ordered some Infinity's for the boat. Being there are no lights on the boat and I want to cut as few holes as possible I bought one with built in RGB LED's. Found them on closeout on Ebay for cheap This boat will be the first vehicle I have owned (that isn't my wives) that I haven't put an amp in.

    Chinese company, decides to go direct to market, tons of other stuff match. Tells a story. I had to ask though as I hate the fact that I want that, but I can't rationalize $120 for a Memphis when something darn near identical is $60

    Amusingly the RMS watts vary, but the peak are one of two options.

    There just can't be a big enough market to truly design that crap for that price, can there?

    I know...but aren't they all "the same"? ie, my gut tells me these are all the same exact board with a different screen/faceplate. Makes me want to buy the $60 one.

    My guess is Velex is the manufacturer. $60 for that one. $100 and $120 for the other two. There is a Kicker as well that looks the same.... I assume the real brands probably have some slightly higher specifications ont he screen and such, but it will be used solely to stream music from my phone...no amplifier though so I am a bit wary.

    Looking for a 3" gauge radio for my fishing boat. Based on specs I somewhat assume that ALL of these are fundamentally the same thing and made by the same people. What's all your guys' take? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VV6YCLA?pf_rd_r=V6CCJBM6ZD12258F6MCZ&pf_rd_p=5ae2c7f8-e0c6-4f35-9071-dc3240e894a8&pd_rd_r=1a396302-fdb3-4b02-b226-81e8f7821fb1&pd_rd_w=IgDUn&pd_rd_wg=hcfT9&ref_=pd_gw_unk https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078KGJMB3/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=A3LLMZ9K72U9P2&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Velex-Marine-Bluetooth-Digital-Weather-Proof/dp/B01L6OU3RS/ref=sr_1_3?crid=TYFYEXWB0YB0&dchild=1&keywords=velex+marine+stereo&qid=1618244999&sprefix=velex%2Caps%2C214&sr=8-3

    And no, it can NEVER be big enough

    Ha. Two is perfect. My slip holds an up to 24' boat which means we can do watersports and create general havoc and the garage stall holds the fishing boat. It takes longer to take a cover off a floating boat than it does for me to get to the launch and put it in. Private city launch is a 500 yard drive away. Saves me from having to take out the rods, graphs and cover it. No brainer. With a foot more on both sides and extra length I can leave the motor up and do it without stopping as I get home and no help. That's all I care about for that. I have a hard cover problem though otherwise it would have been bigger

    There is about 1" on each side of the fenders going through the door. While I can usually see those it is harder to tell if I am straight. A spotter makes it go smoothly. Wheel chock position also regrettably depends on where the ass ends up being backed up. Stupid 220v power box makes it so I have to shuffle it over if I don't get it perfect. 2nd week of May the 4th stall gets framed and then I can do it alone. Adding 2' in width to the door and 4' in length. Easy peasy.

    What sun? The 85F on Monday was nice, but it's wet as fuck here now.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    My wife was home today so I backed the boat in and reorganized the garage. Way faster to back it in, but fuck. 1" on both sides for width and this clearance for front and back makes the butt pucker. Way easier to get out when backed in. Like it when she is home

    Are forums social media? Curious how you share pictures in a forum without uploading on an apple

    Basically my Pixel and Google photos has replaced 99% of my SLR shots and Lightroom nearly completely.

    I should add that I don't think I've ever watched a video I've shot. Just kids band concerts and other shit like that. More for later in life. I do take a lot of pictures though, but really like the Google photo integration.

    iPhone integration for what I do at work sucks. Half my team has them and can't get any normal tools to work with their computer. Such an efficiency loss I can't own one. Could care less what option I have as long as it works and from what I've seen Apple's integration into Windows is abysmal and no way I can use a Mac for work.
