    Bow fishing chair installed

    Installed Garmin using rotary tool to cut the fiberglass ran wire to transducer below and power fuse block


    Installed lights ran power to accessory switch
    Installed them too high and they come out of the water, need to reinstall next summer lower and this time make them level lol

    Installed head and toilet paper holder

    Installed Thrust Vector to help with low speed steering

    Bought cover for FSH sport, very nice cover, very impressed

    Installed antenna on t-tops ran wire through tubing

    Anyone have experience with installing autopilot on this type of steering?

    Is that the factory pedestal seat? I've been thinking of adding one on mine also.

    No clue on the autopilot, seems that would be a daunting task, but I'm sure it could be done!

    Great additions however the real question is have you caught sufficient fish to offset the cost of the upgrades?:)[flag]

    We just ordered it from the dealer, I don't know if it is a Yamaha part but Desert Valley Powersports parts department handled it for us.

    can you show how you installed some of your modifications. im not sure how to wire the add on rocket launcher lights without using zip ties. also curious about the seat and how you were able to install it. what secures the head from falling over?

    For running wire through the t-top frame I drilled a hole at the entry point and at every transition. For example the structure of the frame between the green arrows below is solid so you cannot run wife through these sections, but you can exit and re-enter the frame after this section by drilling more holes. I just drilled the holes where most people will not see them and I used fish tape to pull the wire like you do at home when installing cable through walls.

    A note on drilling, I recommend you plug your drain holes on your deck before you do any drilling and thoroughly vacuum the metal shavings after drilling, I let some shavings get in the drain tubes and it is not good at all.

    The seat is easy. It comes with a big metal plate that fits perfectly under the deck that the stand sits in. You just drill the holes and tighten the bolts and you are done. Super easy I used the life seal you see in the picture below on every bolt and screw on the boat. You will see when you order the part.

    The head comes with brackets you screw into the floor and then snap the head into the brackets. Again, very easy once you see the parts in the box.

    To the OP...forget autopilot. Unless you invent something yourself, AP doesn’t exist for jetboats.

    AP requires hydrolic steering.

    I have AP on my boat and it’s the best thing I’ve purchased to date.

    So you don't have a jet boat then? It looks like you have a 190 FSH in your pictures but you say AP does not exist but you have it. I am sorry I am missing something. :)

    Used to have a 190...but after 9 months of ownership and 150 hours of fishing the Atlantic, I knew it was time to sell!

    I now own a outboard center console.

    Tidewater 250. It has its faults; however, it is an outboard and not a jet which was paramount for me.
