Hey guys...first time poster here (Go easy on me):D

First off want to wish you all a Happy Fathers day!!

:) I've been looking around here for a long time for ideas on how to redo my 86,190 Pro star, I must have read every post that was ever posted.
great articles and information that help me with my project here's the end result...

I would also like to thank the TT Academy for all their support especially Mr. TMC # 1 for all the teak info and smart A$$ comments ever posted, Mr. Diesel which by the way the relay for my dual batt set up works like a charm, Jim N excellent input indeed a very smart dude he knows his stuff...BrianE another smart fellow, And everyone else that has provided any information regarding the upkeep of these toys...
Sorry Im running out of time...But I would also like to thank...

Awwww...never mind...;)

Outstanding job on the boat, you should be proud!

I've never gone into retirement, only the real MC Reunions have gone into retirement.

I appreciate the comments, could not have done it without lurking around here for a year....Without posting as TMC has wrote some learn by reading and I did!

tho I have some issues with the 100 amp alternator upgrade...don't know why it keeps tripping my 40 amp breaker any suggestions?
I installed a new 6 gauge line from the alternator to the battery terminal in my starter relay and it still throws the breaker...

Hope JIM N comes to the rescue again, going to AZ next weekend and I hope to resolve this issue, Vince from SKIDIM said that I should upgrade to a 60 amp breaker but Im worried it would fry the wiring harness, even tho it has a 30 amp inline breaker to the ignition...HELP...!!

Sounds like you may have a short somewhere in the electrical system. Do you have an amp meter? If so remove all the fuses and one by one install them till you find the circuit that keeps blowing the fuse,..
