Best thing I ever did, and I think it gives her a nice modern look. I do love the warmth of the wood so I refinished all the interior teak and with it being inside, I wont have to mess with it ever again.
    Looks great! I am tired of keeping up with mine. Gonna do the same.

    We've been running it for the past few years, so it was a new development. Just so weird

    Was that your first run after refurbishing the boat? Good you were checking things out, could have been much worse 😳

    So we launched the first of July at the POE to take off to Fishermans Bay, and water was pouring in. Drove it to one of our fathers friends places, and we discovered the y-pipe was leaking, possible cracked from the winter. Pulled it off and it had corroded from the outside in! Another friend of ours had another Y-pipe not being used so they put it on. It was a crazy job these guys did in 8 hours and saved our week long vacation! Its great to have seasoned boat mechanics as friends, highly recommend!

    newly installed 383 has been problematic since day one, it’s been removed & disassembled.
    Bad time of year indeed 😩

    I have two on either side on the flybridge. Two in the salon and two in the cockpit. Simple and a full sound everywhere, good enough for me.
    Nice that looks good! I have the speakers installed in the cabin, and at the cockpit like you. Just haven’t worked up the courage to drill some big holes in the flybridge!
    Did you paint the teak on your bulkhead?

    What is wrong with your boat? It’s a bad time of year to have a broken boat! 😔

    Does anyone have speakers on their flybridge? If so where/how do you have them mounted? I have wires running out under the helm for speakers but don’t have any speakers installed.

    Boat looks great! Enjoy your weekend up there. I’d be anchored at fish bay right now if my boat wasn’t broke ☹️

    Dave: they hook up just like normal speakers! Just need a Bluetooth stereo

    Flybridge: Yea, got to really commit if you want those speakers! my main concern would be leakage down the line if you did it anywhere besides under the console.
Working...
