I did end up putting it in the same place but used light indicating fuses on the new fuse pannel. I thought about putting it between the speedos but ended up leaving it in the stock (or where it was under the dash) location. I bought the bigger unit rather than the smaller unit for long term flexibility (sound system maybe in the future) I did have to replace some of the wires due to length but not a complete rewire.

Bravo to Blue Sea Systems for a nice quality unit with a cover....

Today I spent the afternoon wet sanding my repaired fender

Pulled mine out today...Started right away and ran with no problems so decided to take a barefoot run. Little cold...actually, it was really cold. Wish I had my dry suit (waiting for it to be shipped with new seals).

The 30th was removed from its hibernation den yesterday and is sitting comfortably in the garage awaiting a wash/wax, seat repair, and dewinterization.

Good News!! We were on the lake yesterday. Water only averaged about 40 degrees so you have time unless you typically jump in in that temperature. We did and it mostly affected by hands and bare legs and arms.. Duh...
If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

A few things got done on my trip up to the lake house this weekend. Dropped off and picked up my original MasterCraft boat cover after Baraboo Tent and Awning did a complete restitch on her and fixed a few D rings that needed reattaching.

Also bought a used Hewit 32' dock for the boat that needs a little love but for 300 bucks it will do just fine.

Other then that I plan on firing the boat up this weekend in the driveway after installing a new impellar and some spark plugs I cannot wait!
