I have a 96 lund explorer and want to put a radio/cd player in it and was wondering if anyone knows were to get on that is in a water tight box or one that can be built in that has a sheild over the front of it so it dosn't get wet. Aslo I was wondering about where to get speakers....Any info would be greatly apreciated

You have to get a Marine radio, they will stand moisture much better, but not waterproof completely.
I do have some covers, they have a lid that recesses and leaves radio visible or covered.
$ 12.50, email me for picture.

What it the best kind of antenna to put in the boat.
I installed just a cheap rubber antenna but that didn't work too well
What do the new boats with antennas come with
any idea/places to look

One side note- I found I get much better reception on my radio with resister plugs in the engine. Nothing like trolling along listening to the Twinky's on a nice summer night!

Uhhhhhh...have you bothered to price a cheap portable waterproof radio. They are not that bad. And they sound great. I've got an older Sony. Works rgeat, and no commitment!

Try WEST MARINE. They sell a mounting bracket and case for mounting a stereo on the exterior.

I wouldn't waste my money on a marine radio (only my opinion). I think if you can mount the radio in a water proof case you are money ahead. The mounting case is inexpensive. You certainly don't need the salt resistance of a "Marine" radio.

With the mounting case you won't have to cut a hole to insert the radio.

I have to respectfully disagree with Papa Bear, circuit boards on marine stereos are usually conformal coated (plastic spray coating) to resist moisture. Obviously in a marine environment the chances for corrosion (saltwater or not) are higher, as well as some electronic components being susceptible to failure due to high humidity.

Just my opinion as well.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
