. . . but I do live on my sailboat and my wife and I are currently in Australia as we make our way around the world. Besides enjoying distant and remote places, our Alpine CDA-9856 is almost always on, playing from our 60gb iPod. We have Bose speakers in the cabin and some cheap marine speakers in the cockpit. We also use our Alpine to play the audio for the movies we watch from our collection of almost 2,500 that are stored on a 1tb hard drive.
We wish safe travels to all.
