The installer looked at the boat a few years ago before I bought it and gave the broker a $15,000 estimate for replacing everything. The bill for the items I listed would be $11K, of which $4000
is labor. The $11K quote does not include new depth
, speed, and wind
sensors/gauges or a nav display. The vendor did not make another trip to the boat for the new estimate. I am just trying to determine if this labor charge is in line with what other people have seen. I have worked in the computer and electronics
field for decades but I am concerned with doing a self installation
if B&G ignores any issues that might pop up. I don't mind paying for someones experience and expertise, i just get a bad feeling when I am being charged more than MSRP for the components. makes me wonder what else is inflated.
