My season is always shortened as my wife and driver hates being cold (even if she isn't getting in the water). I'll be keeping this in mind. Again, great/clean install.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

After I finished I sat in it for about 10 minutes. Seat heated up quick and was toasty warm.

Its a nice selling feature....and it is a "cheap" upgrade, so yeah you'll probably see it as a nice upgrade.

Brian -

Do you have any pictures of how or where you ran the wires from the seats to the switch? I am curious as to how you hid the wires.

Thanks,

I don't have any of the hidden wires because they are hard to take if not impossible. I tucked the leads up under the seat kind of on top of the black base. You do see a couple of inches of the wire at the floor where they go over to the gunnel but the seat sits really close there anyway and you have to look for them to see them. I used a little black wire loom to cover the connections. From there I just ran them up on the same path as the kill switch and the throttle wires to the switch and then on to the dash. Clear as mud?
