Bloody Loud! It's not the noise of the Opti, as most of that gets left behind ,but the music will aswell. Nice when tied up though. Can't beat a nice chilled glass of cider and the mellow sounds of Adge Cutler and the Boys.

oh yes i realised that but was thinking it would be nice to have a bit of good music pumping out if i can hear it, probably not good for the sailing chaps but useful for fishinging and general wellbeing

i think i get the idea that a pair of noise cancelling bose headphones might be the best course of action here to hear anything of use.......not sure on the street cred from that angle....

I know several peope that hae stereo systems installed on their ribs of 25+feet.
I've ridden on them and while underway at 25 mph (300HP 4-stroke merc outboard engine) you can hear the music just fine- sans noise cancelling headphones.
I am not exactly sure on the wattage they have to be able to hear it
I will find out for you if your likde.

It sure makes cruising and fishing that much more fun.

Hi and thanks for the feedback, if they know if the system is anything special or not that would be good, if 25 w per channel is ok or if need to go much higher and use separate amps etc

cheers chris
