    Default Stainless thru-hulls

    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.

    A nice upgrade, and cheap too! I agree, they should at least come with the appearance package upgrade.

    Default 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.

    Default 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.

    Brian, looks like your getting it all dialed in!
    Keep us updated on that maintainer. I'd like to hear how that works for you. I need to get something for mine.

    Looking good brutha!


    PWI as usual...

    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.
