    Mandatory California Boater Card phase-in starts in January

    The only thing I disagree with here is when you say “without a single vote…”, California citizens consistently vote these same liberal a-holes in so we should not be surprised when they consistently do the same liberal shit.

    Yeah, I have found a couple a few years older and they are the same with more add ons for less money so I am thinking along those lines now. Gonna have to sell the mighty SeaPro first though.

    I have the 768 color version (# could be off but I think that's it - boats in for service). Anyway I love it. Works great and lots of detail. No experience with others though. Probably lots of opinions from guys who know more than I.
