At currently advertised discount prices, the V1 looks like a very good deal.

Be sure to install it with healthy-sized wire/cable. The manual isn't very helpful...doesn't even give amperage draw stats...and the table given is confusing (why combine boat size and wire-run lengths, when only wire-run length is important?). I'd use wire a size or two larger than shown in this rather crummy table.

JMO,

Bill
