Unfortunately yes $360.00 is not a lot of money for a marine alternator. Some alternators will run close to $400.00 alone then you need a regulator which can run an additional $250.00 to $400.00 depending on model. Then there is always the fact that many of these high output alts may require custom made brackets to fit and your talking even more $$$..
