    That remote is intended to be flush mounted, not surface mounted. You'd want something like that in your dash panel, but not at the transom. I doubt you'd even be able to find a spot flat enough to get a good seal without gooping in a bunch of silicone. You can get a nearly identical remote that is intended to be surface mounted that would allow you to only drill a very small hole for the wire to pass thru.

    I had that same clarion remote on the transom of my old boat. As long as you have a relatively flat spot you'll be fine. It did take me a few bottles of liquid courage before I got the drill and holesaw out.
    I loved it though. I'll eventually do it on my LSV.


    PWI as usual...

    Oh man, I could never do it. No doubt a flush mount looks nice, but I think I'd pass out long before I built up enough courage to pull it off.

    I have to say that I would have no issues cutting a 3" hole in the boat, as I just finished ripping out tons of fiberglas removing the oem sub box, but the issue with me is that you are now stuck with that brand of remote, and potentially that same style. kenwood makes 3 different styles of transom remotes. you flushmount the one you have and what do you do when they stop making that style and yours breaks?

    Well, that brand of remote is the only remote that works my Clarion radio. I cannot put a Kenwood remote on a Clarion radio. If it brakes thats ok because I bought a spare off of ebay just in case that happened.

    Here is a NEW Clarion Remote i just installed in the Moomba.

    We also installed another one at the rear of the boat.

    Awsome look and you have unlimited things you can control with the remote.

    I did the same so that I can easily access it while sitting/laying on the sunpad as well as from the water.

    Thats a nice looking setup man. I like the way the wake gauge is right above it and then the bass volume is also there. Sweet looking install man.
