    LOL oh he did love to WOT that boat I wonder if he sold it yet. Things got real tonight as we booked lodging in Staniel's Cay for this year #Exuma2019 is starting to go down.

    I purchased Garmin's 64CV GPS Chartplotter with Transducer. I wanted it to be installed on the dash, not by the means of some Ram mounts or drilled on front of one of the other gauges. I knew I wanted something more OEMish, and after seeing a couple other individuals creating their dash out of Starboard, I knew the way.

    Materials:
    12x27x0.25 inch Starboard from ebay $19.50
    #8x32x1.25" stainless steel screws (x7) from Home Depot
    Ryobi Countersink bits $9.97

    Optional:
    Carbon Fiber wrap 12"x60"from eBay $5.95

    *The tachometers will be zip tied behind the panel if they are required for the signal to get to the Connect unit
    *I beveled the edges with a router
    *Difficult to get the unit leveled since there are no straight edges to guide from
    *I would assume this Garmin is the largest that would fit

    Appreciation is welcome but perhaps you will rethink that. Not even two years in the south and I just had to jump in the jacuzzi to warm up as it is ONLY 60 degrees here right now :cool:

    At 9:42 they mention lateral thrust control . Sounds like a direct grab from #jetboatpilot . It looks like the boat lands fairly hard when cutting through the wake you can see the passengers heads jerk.

    I don't know if I would say spokesman as much as the last person of the crew still slumming it on a Yamaha Jet Boat lol the rest of the crew has upgraded to Cobalts or boats with 3 or 4 racing outboards on the back and they don't really spend much of time on here anymore. @Gadiel we left West Palm and went to West End refueled and cleared customs. We left West End and went to Spanish Cay and refueled and then continued on to Treasure Cay where we stayed. Treasure Cay was nice it is a protected harbor that they close off with a security fence every night. If have any specific questions let me know and I will do my best to answer them. A lot of info can be found in the below thread or by searching #abaco2017

    @robert843 , thank you for taking the initiative and I hope we can get a good group out. It was 45 degrees here today and #IrodeToday. The uhaul is a great option at $14/day and I have done that a couple of times.

    This will be a safe trip the way we do it.

  17. Proof (?) that you should winterize in colder climates...?, Oct 23, 2018

    Maybe, just maybe. . . . This is why your tower attacked you. The boat was mad at you for not properly winterizing her. . . . #justsayin
