Gotta' love those gray Oregon skies. I moved from Portland to Tampa exactly a year ago, and I love it.

Do you do most of your boating in the rivers?

Very nice boat. I like the tower arm and rear storage.

Hey dt,

I moved here exactly a year ago from Denver, so the weather has definitely been a big adjustment. The pics of the boat in the water were taken at Hagg Lake but I do most of my boating on the Willamette river, from Newberg to Wilsonville.

Very nice, couple of questions...did you rearrange the gauges to move the make plate guage up high? Interesting I intalled the same depth guage after market. Is that a picture of someone fishing on your ski boat? Say it isn't so :cry:

Love the pic of your son surfing, very cool 8)

sled,

Yes, I wanted the wakeplate gauge up high since I look at it a lot. I also moved some of the other gauges so that the three gauges I look at the most (other than the speedometer) are all in the same area.

That is a picture of my then 3 year old daughter (now 4) "fishing" with her toy fishing rod, the kind with a plastic fish attached to the line. That's the only kind of fishing that goes on in my boat :wink:

[QUOTE]

I like the 12V outlit. Did you rewire it so it is no longer off the NAV switch? Did you have to do any fiberglass work or where you able to snap it in? I also like the Stainless Steel Thru Hull Fittings.

jester,

I did not rewire it and I need to as it trips the breaker once in a while. I use it to air up a big tube so after running for a while, it will sometimes trip.

In regards to the fiberglass work question, below is a link to the install:

Thanks for the how too. This might be a project when i am floting on the lake waiting for the wind to die down.

How much work was it to change your gauges around. I'm not a huge fan of the placement of the wakeplate gauge and like what you did with it.

Great ideas! Love the 12 power on the side. Its beyond me why they put the light plug there anyway!:\ Love the stainless through hull hull fittings. Evry ploace I've looked they are like $35 a peice. Where did you get them and how much.
Your boat looks great! We need to get out together sometime. You going to the Portland reunion? I'm going to try to get there for a little bit but I have a wedding @ 4pm.

Newty,

Thanks. Got the SS fittings below on a tip from Razzman. I paid $37 including shipping for all 4 fittings.

Yeah, I am planning to make it to the Portland Reunion. Would love to meet up - I'd like to check out your boat as well.

Hello , I saw where you installed the amp , I have an old school kenwood amp about the same size and was wondering when you screwed the bottom screw in how did you do it? Is it into the fiberglass? I have a 05 lsv. Thanks, Jim .

cab13367
07-02-2008, 03:39 PM
jim,

I screwed it directly into the fiberglass, very carefully. Pre-drilled the hole and only went in about 1/8". I then used a really short screw. The weight of the amp is on the three top screws - the bottom one just keeps it from bouncing. That's why I only put in one screw.

After I did this, I installed the stainless thru hull fittings and saw that the hull is very thin in this area, only about 1/4". Had I known that before, I probably would not have drilled the hole for the bottom screw of the amp.

Be very careful!

Thanks man, you have a nice boat! My last boat took 10 years to get it the way I wanted it
and this one I am trying to get it done in a few months. Jim .

Thanks Jim. I enjoy tinkering with the boat to get it just how I like it. In a way, I prefer it this way to buying one that is already all blinged out. This way, I pick and choose what upgrades I want to do (and what I want to pay for) and how to do it.

I'm taking my time with this one. I've had it about 18 months now and do a little bit at a time. I think a 3 outlet heater will be the major project for the winter and I know just how I want it installed (and it's nothing like how the factory does it).

Look sgreat. I have the same boat and havea couple of questions.

1) How did you do the transom walk through
2) Where did you get the stainless cupholders
3) Where did you get the spacers for your tower speaker clamps

Poikonen,

Here's the link to the transom walk thru:

I got the ss cupholders from the local Rinker dealer.

The spacers came with the tower speakers. Got them from h20sportswarehouse.com
