Music situation on charter boats?

I will be chartering from Conch next month, Bene 403, 2002 boat. My guess is, it's a gamble expecting a boats CD player to actually work.
What's the trick here, I assume an iPod? Can some sort of external speakers be had to allow good volume for the cockpit or main cabin? Something that can be carried on flight? TIA

Re: Music situation on charter boats?

It's becoming more common to find Aux ports on the shipboard radios, where you plug a cable from your devices headset jack to the radio. Horizon even gave us a cable to connect our iphones to it, even though we brought our own. You might call the charter company to ask about your specific boat.

I always take a iPod dock (12v plug in) that puts out a radio signal, then tune to it on the boats system.
A stack of CD's is just so 90's

Our Conch Bene had a Fusion unit with CD player and USB and Ipod adapter cable, not sure if all of the boats have this so YMMV?

Whats YMMV and TIA? Are we talking about Transient Ischemic Attacks?? Golly, I guess I'm just so dang old. All I have are Compact Discs. I thought 90's stuff was pretty up to date. I guess I'll pitch out the 8-tracks... they're somewhere underneath my sextant gargabe. Well, I've ranted! See ya later alligator!

You can buy a real cheap generic MP3 player and copy your CDs from your computer.
