    Erich, for what it's worth, if I had it to do again I'd go through the water heater to make sure there's no rust and the element is good, mount an extra thru hull transducer next to the stock one under the engine, check the transom drain plug fittings to make sure it's well sealed and there's no softness in your transom around that area, check your wastewater tank fittings, particularly the vent. I also moved the Perko Switch topside to a small compartment I built on the short end of the L seat into the side of that small storage area. That way you don't have to open the engine compartment every time you change the Perko Switch setting. This would also be a good time to install lights in the engine compartment that are activated by opening the engine compartment cover.

    Also, if you plan on installing larger trim tabs anytime soon, now might be the time to check on resizing your hydraulics.

    Just my suggestions for spending your money.

        hot water is nice if you stay on your boat alot. My 2355 also had it removed, I threw a new one in and plumbed it to the engine.

          Paint the bilge.

          Elevate the trim pump if it is mounted directly to the bilge surface.

          Inspect/replace your battery charger if needed.

          Inspect/replace the blower motor and vent lines if needed.

            My pet peeve: An MBSS in the engine bay.

            You mention installing a new one, and if it's now in the engine bay, this is your oportunity to relocate it.

            Just a thought.

              We had a '96 2655 and the MBSS location is the absolute worst part of the boat.

                Not only a PITA to access, but in an electrical shut-down emergency, it would be nearly impossible to get to in a hurry.

                You'll also find yourself managing battery banks more effectively when you have easy access to it.
