well they have these things that connect to where the headphones are, and it transmits a signal to the radeo, so you can listen to your MP3 music over a certain radeo station. You can pick these up at best buy and places like that, i even got mine at a walegreens for 20 bucks.

but can you bypass the radio and run it through a amp and and just use the mp3 player as a radio and song player? so that way you will not have to have a radio in the boat at all.

Seems like you could do it. But how would you adjust the volume? From the MP3 player? You might have some hummmmm from the amp at low volume though.

Need more info.

What make/model of stereo do you have? Or do you not have a radio at all?
What make / model of amp?

If you have a relatively new radio there may be an 'Aux' input in the back. That would solve your problems.

I don't think your way would turn out very good results.
