TMS Installations

In twenty plus years, Technical Marine Support has done a wide variety of installations. We recently started photographing some of our work. We will be posting pictures and descriptions of different installations in these pages. We hope that you will see something that helps you with your boat. Maybe you’ll even see the same boat and get some ideas. Technical Marine Support is dedicated to customer satifaction in all that we do. Once you buy your marine electronics from TMS, you can be sure that there is real world experience behind our recommendations and services. Thanks for looking at our Installation pages. Enjoy!

The second Garmin unit is networked to the original one. A Furuno or Northstar chartplotter would have been better here, but all in all, it came out very well.
