Guys, I'm specifically lookin' for some photos on Prostar 209's or 205's.......I've almost got enough nerve to poke a hole in the bote! I'm only concerned about the lack of flat places and the height above the platform......well, aside from poking the hole too. Thanks in advance!

Gamble,
One of the TT members did a write up on his install of the transom remote on his 209. Here is the link to his thread (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=12005&highlight=remote). The Pioneer remote he used is 102mm (h) X 67mm (w) X 46mm (d). The Clarion is about 3 inches (76.2mm) in diameter. Both require the same 2 inch hole to be cut in the hull.

thanks andy! After looking at his pics I think I can put mine in the same place and that's a lot better than where I was gonna put it!

Here is the pictures of my old 1993.
It had the pioneer MR-70 ( said waterproof ) more like water resistant. If they get wet. it will quit working. You need to take it apart and seal it with silicone.

I have the clarion on my 1999 X-star. will install the transome remote next week. ( hopefully they are more waterproof

I have gone through 2 of them this summer due to getting wet. What did you do to silicone them?

Im curious, how many people actually use their transom remote. Ive never used it, and don't really see ever using it. I guess it depends on how you use your boat. My new boat does'nt even have a radio and probably wont put one in.

Even the prop is shiny. Do you polish that too Sodar, or is it new? By the way is that an ACME 541?

Here is one on a Maristar 225VRS I installed. Just find your spot. Tape it off. DRILL IN REVERSE TO START. Once through the gellcoat go forward through the hull. You can use a very small amount of silicone if you want. Also dont over tighten the unit from the back so you dont crack the plastic housing.

endl, thanks for the pic. From looking at yours, it appears to be in about the spot I'm gonna put mine. I was kinda concerned it'd be too low and would be swamped when I load/unload, or come off plane. Does yours get wet quite often, and if so, I guess it's still working fine.? thanks in advance.

The swim platform on those Maristars sit right above the water, and honestly I dont know how much wash back came up on the back. That handle/bar ran across the back and I thought that would protect the remote a little and looked most uniform. I sold the boat.

remove the rubber backing. ( it just peels off )

then put some silicone around the seal ( The arrows )

Thanks REM. That will be a winter project.

I just got my remote installed. It was really an easy project once I got past the fear of drilling a 2" hole (2" hole saw from Lowes). There was already a power and ground wire for the instrument light, right were it needed to be. I then just ran the remote lead up to the stereo, hooked up the y cable and it was done. I think I'm going to enjoy the control back there this summer.

This is on a 2001 Prostar 209.

Why would I want to do that!?!?!? :rolleyes:

Is that not the finest piece you have ever laid eyes on? You should be proud of the 197 in Cali sporting the CMC Guide Pole Covers.
