Are you sick and tired of replacing trailer lights? I know I am. Yesterday when I hooked up my duck boat, the Feather Duster, the left tail light was dead. When I opened it up, this is what I found:...
Interphase’s Chart Master iPro
While running a bunch of new chartplotters for a feature (soon to be published on Madmariner.com,) I had the chance to play with Interphase’s newest unit, the Chart Master iPro. FULL DISCLOSURE: Like any rational human being, I’d be thrilled ...
