boat for example seems to be getting more and more expensive every day Boat motors seem to have no limits on how much they cost these days AND CAN NOT DO TO MUCH WITH THEM WITH OUT A LAPTOP IN YOUR HAND

a great example of stuff getting better and in most cases lees expensive RADAR back in the late 60s when i was a kid it was very rare to see radar on a boat
today is like a 1200.00 dollar accessory back then i was like 10'000.00
you din not see it much on recreational boat until the 90s
Now its the joy stick steering /docking just recently steering has been evolving yet another generation seems we went from cable steering ( meaning cable with pulleys spring etc) to push pull cable to hydraulic steering the next generation appears to be all electrical . being better faster more precise and LESS MONEY systems costing as much as 50 k when it first came out in a hyd version are now some of them as little as a 6500 dollar accessory
