Hey all -

Might have a great price possibility on Electronics for new boat build. Does the warrant start on purchase date or Installation date? I am assuming day of purchase. With boat builds taking longer, dont want to be stuck with it. Thank you

Mike, you will have to check with manufacturer of the electronics, I just went through this with Garmin and confirmed that they will start the warranty for my electronics when the boat is delivered, but will need to provide them with proof of commissioning date.

Has he priced the units you’re looking at?

20 years ago the EE discounts were great on apparel and fishing gear, but virtually non existent on electronics. A lot may have changed, though.
