Preferred Partner C & L Marine Electronics
Since 2016, Waterline Boats / Boatshed has successfully recommended the products and services of our preferred partner C & L Marine Electronics to many a satisfied customer.
Known for their expertise and reliability, C & L Marine are factory authorized, direct dealers for Simrad, Fusion and Garmin electronics. They are also the Seattle area certified sales and service center for the high-end B&G H5000 instrument and autopilot systems and Zeus navigation plotters and radars. C & L have also been entrusted with providing and installing the electronics equipment for the majority of Helmsman Trawlers in the Pacific Northwest. Other sales and installation offerings include satellite TV, WiFi boosters, cameras and sound systems. For used and older systems, troubleshooting and repair services are available to get customers’ tried-and-true equipment back up and running.
The small but adept two-person team of C & L pride themselves on establishing trustful relationships with their customers, and they enjoy a reputation for being highly personable and easy to work with. They endeavor to make their business process and dealings refreshingly simple and transparent, and owner Eddie Legard ensures that each and every job performed is done so to the highest standards of quality.
Eddie began his career in the marine electronics industry in 1990, while working under “guru” Frank Ziemba, whose business specialized in the sales, installation and repairs of marine electronics. The only company at the time that specialized in sailboat and performance electronics, Eddie began learning the tricks of the trade before further investing himself in the field and attending technical college in electronics manufacturing and service. He later became B&G and Simrad Certified.
When starting C & L Marine in 2008, even at the onset of the financial breakdown, Eddie was able to bring all of his skills and experience together to create a successful business, which is still thriving to date thanks in part to his talented coworker Gary Greenewald, who comes from a family of boaters and brings with him a passion and aptitude for detailed workmanship.
At the end of the day, Eddie and Gary’s greatest source of satisfaction is showing a customer the final product of an installation – the gratitude for which he states “makes it all worth it.”
