Special Raymarine Solent Beer and Banter.
As some of you are aware my place of gainful employment these days is Raymarine in Portsmouth, where apart from doing my normal job I regularly voice my opinion on existing gear, and products in development with regard to their use on boats and RIBs outside the more usual Raymarine target market.
The marketing and development teams have obviously been listening, and it appears would genuinely appreciate spending some time with some like-minded individuals.
Iíve suggested that I could set up a special Solent Beer and Banter session, or hijack a normal one, so that they could bring along some kit, both existing and unreleased, which we would have the chance to play with, voice our opinions about, and suggest what we would like to see included in future developments.
There is also the possibility of future liaison between us and Raymarine with regard to development trials etc.
Its an excellent opportunity to put our point of view across, and let these teams know what we want from marine electronics, however to make it work I need some commitment that enough of our community would turn up to make it viable. Iím happy that I can judge this from the reaction to this thread.
Some reactions please.
