Tony handles marine electronics for a living yet he is always Johnny on the spot when it comes to giving advice or helping sort out screw-ups that either we or someone we have paid has done on our electronics.
I had an issue with the installation of my autopilot and Tony contacted me right away and told me if I couldn't sort it out, to call him and he would help "get it right."
His advice was spot on and everything is working great!
If you guys are in the northern part of the state, I wouldn't hesitate to use Tony.
We all need to support the vendors that help out on this forum.

I just wanted to thank Tony for getting up early this morning and getting my GPS working on my boat. I had called Tony last week to let him know that I thought I needed a new GPS antenna because I found a cut in the antenna wire. My GPS had stopped working so I figured that was the issue. He told me he did not have the antenna in stock but if I could get one he would try to work me into his schedule and get it fixed. I bought the antenna (sensor) and let Tony know I had it.
I knew that he and all the other installers were backlogged for weeks so I figured that I may have to wait for a while to get the GPS fixed. Since I was fishing this past Monday, I decided to install the antenna myself on the Saturday before. Well, after 3 - 4 hours in 95 degree weather, I got the antenna mounted and connected but still had no signal. I was bummed and also had a new appreciation for what Tony does for a living. Went fishing on Monday trying to work locations with a handheld GPS which worked until it lost power.
Just as I was dropping the boat off at my storage place on Tuesday, Tony calls me and tells me that he could get me in on Wednesday if I could get to his place early. That was music to my ears as I expected the earliest I would have my GPS back would be the first week of July. I agreed to be there at 8:00 but actually arrived early. Tony saw me outside of his place and came out early, reviewed the situation and had my GPS working in under 15 minutes. You would have thought that a guy with an MBA would have checked the fuse but after 3 - 4 hours I yelled calf rope and gave up on the installation. Tony checks my work, says it looks right and then found the blown 5 amp fuse that I missed.
The moral to this story is leave it to the professionals. :R Tony, thank you for starting your day early this morning and getting my GPS working. I am one happy camper now.

Hard to say how long you've been on the forum with the new registrations and all, but Tony's been around for a long time and has a solid reputation of doing excellent work for alot of people around here. Like I said, my needs are too simple so have never used him, but if there ever comes a day that I need any electronic work done I can tell you without looking that I wouldn't call anyone else.

He took 10 minutes with me on the phone and helped guide me toward stereo equipment for my Boston Whaler. He even told me several ways to determine I was getting the best price from my vendor. After I bought the equipment he did an excellent job on the installation and the pride he takes in his workmanship shows. I highly recommend him.
Thought I’d pass along a nice recommendation of a forum member who did a nice job for me. Last night Tony did a nice stereo install on my small 19 foot BW Outrage, PLAN B.
Where I wanted to put the head unit required a tool I didn’t have so I called Tony. After finishing a day of work at his business he came over and quickly knocked out this install. Using a ROTOZIP was the key to making the cuts.
Searching on the FS forum I found multiple high recommendations for a Fusion RA-200 stereo system. I bought the RA200KTSD stereo bundle which came with a head unit, speakers, and an iPod Dock (w/5 yr warranty) for $240. Not too expensive and fitting the bill for what I wanted.
Great job Tony-Thanks for coming over and doing it!
It seemed I could not get my teenage son very interested in inshore fishing. I tried everything. You see he was spoiled by his Papa’s stocked pond. Pond fishing was quick and easy. Inshore fishing was just too slow for him so he never had much of an interest to go. I hung up my fishing gear for several years.
Then one day last year my son mentioned he might want to try inshore fishing once again. I dusted off the fishing gear, refueled the boat and bought new fishing licenses and off we went. We did okay, a few small to slot sized reds and a few trout. Not enough to give him the “fever”. About this time I started reading reports posted on the forum of big bull reds in the St. Johns River. I knew that if he could hook up to a bull red he would be afflicted with fishing fever the rest of his life.
I made some posts asking for information about how to target the bulls with no real replies. After all, fishermen don’t want to give away their secrets. Finally I messaged a forum member I didn’t know and had never met for some help. He kindly gave me some tips for targeting the bulls and ideas on where to look for them. Thanks Tony! (AKA Boattronics!) Following his information I was able to put my son on some nice 40” plus reds. A fisherman is born with a raging fever! We’ve been fishing 40 to 50 times since. The forum came through and helped this father spend quality time with his son.
Tony- I'm down whenever to fish. I haven't fished in a while, but your right I do owe you a trip. You did great work on the boat bro. I did call you right after you did that work, but your kid was born that day lol. After that I went back down to Tampa. I just moved back but I really do appreciate the work you did. I'll shoot you a text next time I head out your way. I do want to get on some big sheep.
