This month was especially practical they had "Tined Wire Myth Busted" which is practical I guess? Then in the same issue they had an article on night vision "thermal imaging" cameras for boats.

The least expensive model made is a fixed view that you can't even move or rotate for $5000.00! That's a lot of tinned wire!!The next model up in the line, and the one they liked, is $9000.00! Oh, and the best part of these units they DON'T even work well in the fog so yes you will still need radar...!

Yeah real practical chap out on your wire so you can afford "star wars" for your boat??

P.S. How many boaters are going to spend more than $1.00 EACH for heat shrink crimp connectors and then cheap out on the wire???
