My system is from Racing communications. They have all types of systems. One important factor is make sure the headset is adjustable and is secure on your head. You don't want it coming off when you hit the big water. www.racingcommunications.com

I also suggest you buy headsets with Gel ear pads and then get the cloth covers for them if they don't already come wiht them. Makes them very comfortalbe and won't get slippery when you sweat.
I like the behind the head as the adjustment for head sizes is a little more and also they tend to catch a little less air.
Here's the covers. I can hook mine to a hand held, Cell phone, stereo and can also plug in a tape recorder. We run off 9V batteries and I've only had to change them each spring. I bought some extension midi cables for the intercom so I can mount stick them to the gunwales out of the way and also bought extension for the head sets so people can move around and not be hung up by the 4 foot headset cables.

I've used the Revolution Marine headsets with throat mics for 3 years and they work great.
Will not do another poker run without them. Everyone feels safer and we can talk during the runs. The mics are always activated. There is almost no background or wind noise and you don't miss the first syllable like some of the voice activated units.
I have the optional alerts that provide audible engine alarms in the headsets.

Anyone have a guess as to the total cost to put a full David Clark (or similar) 9800 Marine system in? Thank you
A protable dave clark aircraft system is about $700 for 6 places and figure about $300 a piece for a base DC head set. So thats $2500. So now make it a marine system and hard wire it plus upgrade to a behind the head set.
I going to guess $4-5k with good DC head sets.
