Has anyone installed one of these remotes in a 92-95 Prostar 205?

I can't decide on where to cut the hole and mount mine


I am thinking either between the two vents at the back or on the left handside of the transom

How about the right hand side of the transom???

It's all visual.

If the rear end of your boat looks like my 190's transom, I'd go dead center above the grab rail.

You'd have to yank it no matter where you put it on the transom, right?

No, if I put it on the lhs I just have to move the battery

If I put it between the vents I don't have to take anything out

Hmmmm.....

I'd probably got left side then. If you put it up between the vents, I'd worry about it constantly getting bumped when people are sitting back there.

i would put it on the left side, in the location where the gas cap is on the right side... would look uinform ;)

that was one of my concerns as well, I was thinking of where the yellow decal is

it is a slope

down below would be a pain unless you are in the water was another thought that I had

How about this area, in between the vent and the outside edge.

I don't think there is enough space there but I will look tonight when I get home as that is a good spot also

I have still been to scared to cut into the boat to install this remote (I know I know scardycat right)

I have decided though that I am going to put it on the transom on the lhs
