You may not want to crank the stereo of your flats skiff while poling skinny water, but for those anglers who enjoy some tunes while running from spot to spot, two high-performance, marine-grade stereo units from Fusion are worth checking out.
Fusion, a New Zealand-based electronics company specializing in car audio, says its MS-IP500 is the first marine stereo unit to provide true internal Apple iPod docking. The MS-IP500 protects an iPod in a waterproof compartment that’s safe from marine elements. The company’s MS-CD500 CD stereo, meanwhile, offers similar features supporting and protecting its built-in CD/MP3 drive. They may not be completely appropriate while on the flats, but these units will really rock your world when on the go. MSRP is $399.99. www.fusionelectronics.com
