    Default Flush mounted the transom remote

    I've been wanting to do this since the day we got the boat, and finally got around to it. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. Man, I am soooo glad this is done. I hated having it mounted on top of the deck.

    That's a big hole!


    Sexy finisher!


    This whole project took 20 minutes start to finish. I used my jigsaw with a bimetal blade and it cut through with ease. I Had ash on the inside of the locker with the shopvac catching the dust. Remote and bezel dropped in the hole and tightend up like a glove!

    Nice work!

    Hope Ash had a mask on so she wasn't breathing in fiberglass dust. That stuff is nasty.

    If by mask you mean "cover your face and close your eyes babe" then yeah, she nailed it.

    I hope it lasts a long time and they never change the size and shape of them if it doesn't. Cuz it looks great.

    Dusty I am doing that with my Kenwood 107mr remote soon. The jigsaw didn't leave a rough finish in the gel?

    It cut right through it. The blade didn't want to make the curve on the bottom left, so it looks a bit jagged. But overall, it left a very clean cut.

    Kane-I have the original as backup!

    The 107mr replaced the commander remote and it is a different shape. I thought about flush mounting my 107r and then decided against it. Being that it has an electronics display I was not sure of the life span of this item being on the back of the boat. It is marine and should last but you know how that is.
