!?!?!?!

Red Fox, I'm a 36yr old family man employed as a senior executive within a multi-million pound organisation, the Chairman of the PTA and a committe member of my golf club, not some 18 yr old kid pumping volume from his ford fiesta.

Thoughts of "Apocalypse Now" and "Ride of the Vallkaryes" have been temping in the past.
But being able to get the weather shipping forcast, does have advantages

Glad to hear it MeMe. The oldies must set an example ...mind you could just have been the spoilt to death son of a senior exec with a multimillion pound company with money to burn whose daddy was the chairman of the PTA and a member of the golf club no less!...and I suppose that is meant to impress...Anyway I still don't want to hear Radio 3 over the waves!

Daddy drives a Rolls

I'm the son of a Cammell Lairds shipright. I don't play golf and my daughters school does not have a PTA. My point, which, I'm sure was not missed was, that one has enough autocratic politicing and meddeling in ones life without finding it when one is engaging in escapism.

whats a PTA , is it some sort of Power take off attachment
anyway to get back on track, . I have had quite a few devices fail on me, usually for electro-mechanical reasons (they don't like the banging).

So I decided that the next system I install was going to use a built in power amp and speakers and possibly a radio head unit but have a line input to connect a Solid State MP3 (sony Stick etc)player to the system. this would give me loads of music with no moving parts

For the record (geddit!) all my boats are named after favourite songs or albums and one of my favourite tracks is by Hendrix and it's called "if six was nine" I think it would be tempting fate to call a boat that!

personally I can't think of anything better than being out on the water with some music so get it sorted and let us know what you got and how long it lasts

mp3

MP3 that's a very good idea....no moving parts. A few people have commented that with the best will in the world a tape deck or a cd player just don't like bouncing around. An MP3 would be a real space saver as well. I'll carry on my investigations and let you know. In the meantime, I went to Mailspeed Marine in Warrington yesterday, they had a couple of units but they looked like they'd been on the shelf for an age. That in itself sort of gave me an indication !! Thanks for the thought. G

You could fix a parcel shelf onto the A frame, bolt in a couple of 12" main speakers, put a pair of tweeters on the console a bass woofer under the jockey seat and a 350 watt amp in the bow locker and you should be able to hear it above the sound of the outboard. You might even spot the fish headbanging on the Garmin. What next?...flashing LED's on the tubes and a blue neon on the keel...Long live Rock and Roll...Keep The Faith!
