I quite like the shop though, in this world of internet discounts a shop thats 15 miles from my house and stocks marine electronics at pretty much internet prices is not the sort of local asset I want to screw over, one day I might need them in a hurry (as I did on this occasion when I realised I wanted a second h/held for a trip the day before I left). You see a canny Scot picks his battles wisely!
However I have been thinking about fitting a fixed vhf to the boat too, so it might do no harm to discuss this when in there!
