Washed and cleaned her with the help of some friends. Also put in a new battery. Headed out for our first trip to the lake tomorrow.

We sat in mine on Friday night and drank about a gallon of wine and Jager. Oh...and she was sitting in the garage! Good time!

Becaue of all this talk about transom tie downs I installed a pair of Boat Buckles G2 on the trailer to secure the back of the boat and a safety chain to secure the bow..... All that I had previously was the winch strap and Boat Buddy holding the boat on the trailer.

My friend and I were just talking about doing that. How much time and money did you spend on this project?

Looks great.

Looks great.
Sheet of 1/4" Plexiglass = $45
Cutting Circles (Pain) = 3 Hours (2 people doing 14 cut outs - 2 boats)
LED's = $12 to $16 for 50 on Ebay
LED Install = $25 of Pizza for my Brothers electronics students who did it during class
Install:
- 2 Speakers at a time.
- Rear sides = 2 hours
- Front seats = 2 sessions @ 2 hours each
- Tower speakers = 3 hours

6.5" speakers (Polk DB650's) allowed for an easier install because LED wires didn't need bent 60 to 90 degrees to conform to the speaker cone.
The 5.5" speaker cone didn't provide any room and the LED install should have been more perpendicular to the ring. Most wires were bent OK but some needed to be re-glued.
Some of the LED's broke loose and needed to be re-glued. This resulted in a two session install for the front.
Cracked a few rings while drilling speaker holes when the drill head broke threw the plexi.
All in all:
$86 Hard Cost
10 Hours of cursing, cutting, soldering, drilling, etc. This would be higher if I had to install the LED's in the rings.

Good Luck!
