Nice job. Carlsonwa, I have the same boat 98 Sportstar red/white... what gauge is second from the left (beside the fuel gauge)? I have just a blank in that spot.

Where you added your depth finder I put a volt meter (98 Sportstar 19). My Depth finder is monitor type that I mounted on the dash (mine is black vs yours white..?).

On the right side is another empty gage spot. I have thought many times what I should put there...it seems dumb to not use it. Perhaps fuel pressure..that seems like an important value to have? + and -, humm...

Anyone have any other ideas?

I did I think what you are looking for - LEXAN. basically, what white cutting boards are made from. An 8x4 sheet (it's thick, 5/8 to 3/4) and virtually unbreakable - have to cut it with a skill or jig saw - I think it was around $100, but well worth it.

Nice. I'm getting a Perfect Pass this spring...nice to see what the dash will look like. Does the lighter socket work ok in that location, lower left. I thought of adding one to my dash also.

Perfect pass was the best purchase I have made for the boat this far!!

It is truly a relationship saver. You can teach anyone to use it. And the pull is so much more fun for me skiing or wakeboarding.

I had to use the included spring and put on a zip tie to the closest hose. Without the spring.. If I overshot the speed too much when throttling up it would not slow down to the set speed properly. Had to position the spring to be relaxed in neutral. Here is a photo.

Few more rear seat progress pics.

Custom craftsman socket for center cushion locating latch.









Side cushions only pictured are the L brackets in the back so the cushion doesn't tip forward. Need to make two more blocks so side cushions cannot slide forward.
