Should Mp3car have a boats section?
Based on the poll results above, the answer is yes! Lets get started !
New Boat computer section: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/boat-computers/
A lot of people have been asking me and the store about how to put a car computer in their boat. I like to sail so I thought I would add this sub forum to see how much activity this gets. If you all hate it I can take it down. The Mac thing started slow and then it picked up as a useful resource. There is a lot of tech in the marine industry that can be converted to cars and contribute to the overall mp3car community. (Fiberglass, ruggedized connectors and similar parts)
Edit: Marine specific issues:
Brightness (look at your monitor on deck)
Ultra low power (for sailing across an ocean and only having wind electricity generation)
Dual monitors (Charting/Mapping/Productivity all on one computer)
Shock - High speed boats
Salt water corrosion problems
Software - Marine Navigation/Charting
