Island Time PC ?????

Have to replace computer on board and am seriously considering buying one from Island Time PC.

website address ......... http://www.islandtimepc.com/marinepc.html

Wondering if anyone has experience with this company - I have seen glowing reports about his wifi systems, but at this time am more concerned about the PC end of things.

Any comments or experiences would be most appreciated

Thanks
Jim/Haulback

I've installed a number of Bob's wifi systems. One customer bought a marine pc I installed. They continue to be very happy with it.

Re: Island Time PC ?????

Jim-
I had Island Time build a 24v computer for my Farr 50. I have raced and sailed from Annapolis to Bermuda and now in the Azores and it has been awesome. I had one little issue when I first got it (just a power thing) and Bob fixed it fast and for free. My computer is never off and has been through a lot. I paid about $1000 and it was a deal. Also, Bob is great and is very helpful and promises to be for the life of the system. He can also built to any voltage and did some cool stuff for me to run 2 12v monitors from the box itself.... Island Tme PC is a great buy!

Thanks both of you for the prompt response. Anyone else feel free to chime in as well.

Time is short, but I will be ordering a machine from him within days.
