The Bridge

We encourage you to utilize our electronics demo facility “The Bridge,” created to help expand your knowledge of both the basic fundamentals and complex characteristics of marine electronics. Join us at our public seminars, or by one-on-one appointment, where we teach the necessary considerations for proper selection, installation, and use of marine electronic equipment. We have on display a wide variety of electronics from a number of manufacturers. Visit us to see the latest technology, and to have a “hands on experience” if you’re looking to upgrade or refit.
