    I got my Avast Marine Breakout box last week and love it! Its sooooooo much easier to use than the Neptune version.. Having to try and find a way to fit 6 wires into one tiny holes never made sense to me! I highly recommend picking one up if your in the market for a Breakout box

    Why don't you make a material list to share? I'd be interested in one. Nice looking box!

    I have pretty limited skills so the pre-assembled Avast BOB was right up my alley. It is very user friendly and works well.

    It lets you connect physical switches / float switches ect to Neptune apex and do programming off their state

    Yes but being able to unplug the cables is nice for maintenance.
