Group buy of HX850S HAND HELD VHF GPS

I'm looking to put together a group buy of the STANDARD HX850S VHF HAND HELD DSC WITH GPS. We're talking separate shipping and maybe getting 10% or 20% off.

I found it at this place for $198.99. And their shipping was inexpensive too.

(I checked and the Sailnet price is $18 more otherwise I'd get it here of course.)
If you are interested in this opportunity to get a group discount on a very good handheld that has built-in GPS, please reply with "I'm interested". I'll use the numbers we get to call them

Looking to get a group order together, to negotiate a discount.

Planning on having them shipped to the different locations where we are. 10% off would be about $20.

I'm interested in getting the GPS one. Anyone else?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Bene,

That's a good unit -- I've got one and recommend it highly (but see my post re the "Voluntary Safety Check".)

As far as the price, have you checked with SailNet/Marine.com to see if they would match or do better? MAybe give them a chance?

These were available at the Annapolis Boat Show last fall, discounted for about $175-185, if I recall.

P.S. If you do generate enough interest, I'd be happy to speak with SailNet to see about a better discount. Just let me know.

John -- I'd love to go with Sailnet, even if the price was slightly higher. I'm thinking we can get these for $180 (10% off) or $175 (15% off), if we get a group together.

If Sailnet hits $190 I'm buying immediately and saving the trouble of getting a group together.

Maybe they'd make it a daily special.
