It is nice to see that someone is more interested in sound quality then
being cool. I agree that you need something to combat skipping, have you
looked at MD. Not only is it much more convenient everywhere, but it will
not skip in the boat, and you don't have to worry about scratching your CD's
when the water gets rough. I have a Sony MD reciever with a 10 disc Cd
changer, and that is what I would recommend. You can get a wired remote for
Sonys for about 20 dollars. As far as speakers and amps go, stick with a
reputable manufacture and you should be fine. The most important thing is
to mount the amps where they will be safe from equipment, and from water.
For speakers you will want to mount them where they are protected, but also
where they have the best chance of recreating a lifelike sound stage. Maybe
on the dash, and somewhere else in the***pit? Also, do you want the
people in the bow to be able to hear the tunes? Let me know if you have
