Ray did you get a 'boat show' price that makes it more comparable to RM? Looks like a robust unit, if not quite as compact an install....
we got a slight price break, but it's still more than the RM. I worry a bit about the drive motor being a toe stubber, but you do what you can with the resources you have. A Hydrovane is going on in a couple more years that will be our work horse off shore, but I anticipate this CPT unit giving us years of service as well. It looks well built.
