Bought 4 stainless thru hull fittings from eBay seller halfpricemarine. These are solid stainless, not the plastic with stainless cap. Total cost was only about $40 shipped.

I just don't get why Skiers Choice doesn't do that for all there boats. Its a no brainer to me.
I was amused to see Tige boats at the boat show with the plastic chrome ones.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

Two bank battery charger
I picked up this charger at Bass Pro Shops on Black Friday for $75! It's a 4/4 multi-stage two bank charger made by ProMariner.
Multi-stage charging means that at first the charger will bring both batteries back to 14.6 VDC during the charging phase, then hold them there to complete charging while desulfating/conditioning the batteries. When that is finished it goes into maintenance mode that will maintain full charge for short or long-term storage.
One other nice feature is the transfer-on-demand that will distribute all available amps to the battery that needs it. On some two bank chargers, 4/4 means at most a battery can get 4 amps. With this model if the starting battery isn't significantly depleted it may take only 2 amps and send it's 2"extra" amps to the stereo battery, for a total of 6 amps on the battery that needs it.
It even came with a free multimeter to sweeten the deal.
Edit: I ended up returning this. I didn't want to mess with getting it to work with my VSR setup.

Polk DB651 cabin speakers
Replaced all 6 cabin speakers with Polk DB651s. I cut the wiring from the factory kickers and soldered them to the new Polks.

Thanks! Garage boating is a great winter pastime. I'm planning to have the battery charger on whenever the boat is in the garage, so I'll let you know how it works out.
