Not to mention the US$.
1. Marine electronics are much lower volume than tellys and hi-fi
2. You'll always pay more for a marine-based product (even if it's identical to it's land-based brother
3. Neither of the above means that dealers get better margins than selling tellys.
Re odd low prices - there will always be some pre-increase stock available here and there. Just depends on dealer policy whether they keep it at old price and only increase with new stock or increase at same time as manufacturer regardless. Nothing dodgy or illegal either way.
