I just scored an amazing deal on a commercial-grade Class A AIS
It seems that West Marine
has a few left-over em-Trak model A100 units that they are selling for $499. I just installed one on my boat
and I'm blown away by the build quality and the features. Price
is so low because the model is discontinued after many years of production and WM just wants to clear them out of the warehouse. Comparable new AIS
units are selling for more than triple the price
When I tried to order through my local store, the order got jammed up and wouldn't go through. When I ordered online using the "Ship-to-store" option, I had the unit in less than a week.
Hope this helps someone.
