I sold my 2355 a year ago, so these mods are not recent, but I will answer questions if there are any. I have AutoCAD drawings + jpg's of the two custom anchor pulpit parts.
First, the anchor pulpit. I bought a standard anchor pulpit, I believe it was a Windline URM-2. In addition, I had two custom parts fabricated, a pulpit support bracket and an extension plate that prevents the anchor shank from resting directly on the gelcoat. The pics should be pretty self explanatory. One thing I hadn't done when I shot the pics, was to split the nav light into two separate lights, one on each side of the anchor pulpit. This is necessary as the anchor will partially oscure the view to the lights.
Second project was the inverter installation. I mounted it on the aft bulkhead in the mid cabin, port side and as low as possible. The cabinet is a plywood CD cabinet that I purchased at IKEA, installed piano hinge, painted and glued on headliner fabric.
Third project was to install a battery switch in the transom locker. This was an easy project.
Next, I installed a deck fill for the water tank. I couldn't figure out how to attach the hose clamp after the deck fill was mounted, so I cut out a hole (using a Rotozip Rebel) that allowed the hose and clamp to slide through from the outside.
I also added midship cleats as even for a small boat can be handy, especially if you tie up at a dock where the dockside cleats are far apart. I also added Perko fender mounts to the deck, three on each side, so I could hang the fenders quickly.
Lastly, the stock stereo came out and I installed a 4-speaker stereo and also removed the speaker selector switch. I put a CD organizer unit from Fischer above the player.

I am only allowed to upload 5 files, so I will add more pictures below.
