This is a negative review, so if you're not into negativity, you can skip this one.

We are full-time cruisers, ashore in Riverside Marina, Ft. Pierce, on which more in a later review. We are in the middle of a very extensive bottom refit (very long story, but you could check our log pages at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheFlyingPigLog if you'd like to know the details).

We have a new transducer for a Raymarine fishfinder which replaced a three-generations older unit. This is the first time in several years we've been out of the water, and we will need to make the replacement of the current transponder (which doesn't really speak the language of the new unit) happen very soon.

Jesse Snyder, of McClure Electronics, is my first negative review target on this subject (there's another!). He's been working on another boat in the yard since we got here, 4 months ago, and was our first attempt to get some help with some Raymarine issues aboard.

Jesse, to his credit, did make it by our boat fairly early on, after many promises, and troubleshot our speed unit, fixing it in an hour or so. Very good.

However...

As we MUST prove out the new transducer (to be working with our fishfinder) before we leave here, the next haulout being in the unknown distant future, and, thus, if not properly interfacing to the fishfinder, a several hundred dollar useless weight aboard, both he and the one in another review have been aware of our time constraints.

Jesse promised to come not only prove out the unit, but to accomplish the exchange (which I COULD do but would prefer a professional to do). However, the first two times he promised to come, he was a no-show.

Ringing his cell phone gets only an answering machine, other than one time I tried after his first no-show, strictly by chance. "I'll be there Sunday, and I'll have all day to finish it up with you."

Right... No show. So, I'm coming out of the shower last week, which was a couple of weeks after the last no-show (and, coincidentally, after the occasions which prompted contacting other vendor on which you will also see a negative review), and there he is, washing his hands at the spigot.

"Which weekend was it that you were coming???" He had the good grace to look embarrassed, making some excuses. "I'll be there Sunday, and we'll get it done." "Great - be sure to call me if you can't make it."

You can guess the outcome - no-show Sunday, and no phone call, either.

I have no real clue if this is now the norm in the marine electronics field, but at he and another Raymarine-referred contacts have now left me hanging, by an increasingly short thread, as time marches on, as does our work, after which we'll splash.

Caveat Emptor if you elect to try McClure Electronics (Jesse Snyder,) both referred to us by people in the yard and Raymarine, but miserably abusing the privilege. If they can't do the work, at least let us know, if not refer us to someone who can...
