Good deal. Thanks for the recommendation on the wiring harnes. Do you have any specific part numbers? Also, what would you say the approximate cost was?

Makes sense. Are you a soon to be inbev employee?

Were the parks sold in the deal also?

Ric, you have any idea on where to find the post about the DIY X-7 install?

Latest word from employees is that inbev will sell the parks..... Dunno how solid that information is though.

All you have to ask your dealer to order is the wiring harness for a x7 ballast system. If you are installing two pumps you will need two of them. I do not remember the cost of the harnesses, but I do know that they were well worth it! I believe the pumps should be about $250 each. Let me know if you need more detailed instructions. Drilling the holes in the bottom of the boat is always my favorite part.

has to be better than drilling for a transom light or a interior LED unit... if i mess up my transom remote drilling not only will it cost me a fortune in getting metal flake fixed but everyone who gets in my boat will see it... can't blame you a bit though... its NOT fun drilling into your investment

Tell me about it! I just drilled holes for 4 cleats and 2 underwater lights. After 2 cleats I had to stop because my legs were so tired from puckering my butt together!

I have drilled a LOT of holes in others people's boat, doing random stuff like rod holders, electronic and such, but it is sooooo much scarier when you are going at it on you own stuff!
