Daze's 2013 mod thread
knowing that im going to be running the 1100lb bag I first got started with a little reinforceing
added a brace along the bottom so the screws for the hinges are not being stressed
laying out the aluminum angle bars
adding bolts and then its time to install
board is inplace
the models with the reversable pumps have all the pumps in the port rear lock and they protrude into the area about a foot--that' valuable space for ballast bag. time to move the pumps
just a shot of the pumps
my relocation is the the forward inside portion of the motor walls that dont hinge down
pumps removed from the factory boardhttp://i527.photobucket.com/albums/c...0-30-12011.jpg
this board is completed gone now-its sitting on a bench, I'll have to get some carpet to finish the back of storage are to match the side
2 pumps on one wall, 1 pump and the control board on the other
had to lengthen a couple wires and reroute a harness but not to bad so far.
just a little blood, babes boat bright seat cleaner cleans it right up
inside shot of the reinforce motor wall and you can see one of the pumps mounted
gaining access to piggyback the IBS to the front ballast
Got to give a HUGE thanks to Drew for convincing me to pickyback the IBS and not install a 4th pump like I originally had planned.
at this time I went ahead and mounted Exile ZLD since everthing was open
running the power wires for the ZLD under the floor. with the floor open it really make access nice
at this point I also ran all the rca cable up around the bow, there are these little tabs on the under side of the seat bases just for this purpose--how cool is that.
since I finally got a boat with the stainless rub rail I also installed chrome vent thruhulls
here is a pic of the black plastic but stil have to get a shot of the chrome one's. I also added one way valves to all 3 vents at the same time. After beinging in Drew's mojo and seeing the difference they make in getting the bags to empty completely it should be a mod of the highest priority-super simple too
Looking real sharp buddy, real sharp. I really like the changes they did in the boat to make the access easier.
Lots of empty cup holders . . .

me too, lots of improvents also in the cut outs for the dash, cleaner work-stuff is just not nearly as rough as it was when compared to the 08. very impresed so far.

If i was not a chicken I'd notch the top portion of that fiberglass panel and set my sub box into so its up high and stealthy. but just no way Im going to try.
