    if you get the kenwood units, you only need to drill 3 holes, one for wiring and 2 for the mounting rods that go thru the hull, that's if you want to surface mount it. flush would require much more cutting than i would be prepared to do, and it's permanent. if you switch to a different brand in the future, might not fit and now you're stuck with a huge hole..

    where to mount it is all personal preference.
    here's a not so great shot of the one on the back of mine...

    Thanks,

    This is the one I am going with. It requires a 3" hole to be installed.

    Here's how i did mine. I didn't want it down on the vertical face of the transom as i wasn't worried about accessing from the water, but be able to easily reach it when sitting on the sun pad.

    Picture 1 shows it from a front/side view, notice i had to make a spacing block from plastic cutting board. I contoured the bottom of the block to match the hull curve. I did this so it had a flat surface to sit on and would completely seal. Pic 2 shows it from the side where you can see the contour. Sorry for the slight blur and brightness!

    I'll post some pics in the stereo thread I installed of the deck and a quick review of it.. did it a while ago, but it was one of the weekends the site crashed and it deleted what I did post..

    ok...
    back on topic.

    I'd have a real hard time cutting a 3" hole in the boat for a remote. that's permanent and really limits your options in the future. no chance for a surface mount?

    Here a pic of the back of mine right now. With the way its curved in the rear I am kinda limited to space. I think it would be a tight fit between the tow hooks and rub rail, so I was thinking about putting it in the sale location as the gas cap just on the opposite side. I was also looking at the space right about the black vent and grab handle. I want it in a spot that is easy to get to no matter where I am at. I am not really worried about the hole itself, just dont want it in a bad spot. I am very close to just taking it to someone who can install it and letting them do it. I was also under the impression that if you have the newer Clarion radios that you have to use their remote with it.

    Thanks for the pics !! Keep them coming.
