NMEA Offers Free Workshop at IBEX

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) will be offering a free boatbuilder's workshop at the International Boatbuilders' Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) on October 13, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Entitled “Building Cost-Effective Electronics Platforms,” the workshop will be led by David Morschhauser, an NMEA technical consultant as well as a panel of NMEA member representatives.

“The workshop will focus on avoiding marine electronics problems from the keel up,” said Morschhauser. “Today's vessels are multifunctional platforms that fill many roles, and one is to provide a platform for marine electronics that ensures safe and efficient vessel navigation, communications and operation.”

The workshop will include a discussion of resources and practices available through the NMEA, and practices and options that maximize performance and minimize costs for boat builders.
