Just installed new radio
I was able to drag the boat home and thankfully it fit in my garage, although the garage was not the issue, but my steep driveway. I left a nice long white line from the trailer wheels hitting as well as a black mark from the spare tire dragging. At any rate I have three inches to spare once I got it in the garage. Sure would be nice to have a folding tongue. Having it at the house enables me to actually work on the boat rather than think of everything I would like to do to the boat.

Project one is done. I removed the old case for the radio, which was broken and instead of replacing it, I fabricated a plastic piece and put a new cover on that came with the radio. So far so good. I also replaced the speakers with some weather resistant speakers. Nothing special, just something that doesn't buzz from having busted speakers when I have music playing. I am not one that has to have a nice booming system in the boat. Not saying I wouldn't like one, I just would rather spend my money elsewhere at this point.

Now that the radio is done for now, I will move onto my next project. Tinting and painting the windshield.

Mine is even lower than the clarion. My original receiver actually still worked fine. I just got a Pyle radio off of ebay. It came with speakers and the cover. I thought about getting a nicer head unit, but that is not even what I needed as much as the speakers themselves. It sounds fine for my needs. If I have to replace the head unit in a year or two, I will upgrade to a nicer unit. This one does have some nice features though. It has the AUX out, USB slot and SD Card slot.

Another note, I do not and cannot have tower speakers currently just bc of the way the tower is made and the height of the garage door. I have to remove the top section every time to get it into the boat house, so for now, cheap works for me.
