I call Photoshopped! With the surrounding seas, where's the wave/wake/whatever that gave him that much air? :1121_wink:

Nice boat, though... :605_thumbs_up:

Yep, horn works. Doesn't sound super healthy, but it will pass for a coastie. Good enough for a coastie then it's good enough for me. :605_thumbs_up: I like the work light, does a decent job of lighting up the inside. Pics in a bit... I should've bought two more of those lights for the space where ...

Switched. The only things I ever wire constant hot are bilge pump float switches and stereo memory. With the batt switch where it is, it's easy to just turn it on to 1 or 2 (or both, if you want) and turn your lights on...

Does the horn actually work?


I can find out. Might just give a little "pffft"...

Be back...

A lot of tedious work today...adding things into the wiring mix one by one. Terminate, route, terminate...over and over again. But I did get the console courtesy lights installed and wired, all 8 speakers (the 2 subs come last), the horn, the stereo, the Lowrance, and the amp. Oh, and the console wo...

Unfortunately Bill, no, I didn't. But here's a good example of what your's looked like. This was a 24 ProKat I did a few years ago.

Bob, a buddy of mine who is also a shop owner is pretty stoked about what you've been doing with the Osprey and wants to check it out when you're finished. I think you may be getting his 23' Cobia next year. :1121_wink: I've re-wired a Cobia, 204, so I know them a bit. Thanks, Bud! :1992_beer_cheer:

We did alright. Working down in the hole with the batts kinda kicked my butt, but it is what it is. The switch panels came with 60 different labels each, figured some of them might come in handy... Tomorrow? More fun and games... :605_thumbs_up: Actually, Monday morn, Molly and I made a trip to HF.....

Damn. Wonder if he tried to call the Coasties to hail the ship when he saw they were on a possible collision course? I mean the ship can deviate a lot...but it can deviate from course some... :504_shrugging:

Awesome Bill, just frickin awesome!! Like I was telling you, just based on the "feel" of the steering wheel in it's "dead" area, it didn't feel like the typical bad helm pump issues. So you're absolutely right, re-building the pump basically would have achieved nothing, save havi...

Bill. those 2 in-line fuse holders are for the bilge pump float switches. They have to be wired constant hot off the batt switch, they're pretty easily accessable. Stereo memory will join them when it's time to button up the stereo/amp. The rest of the "fused" stuff will go to the fuse blo...

There will be a blue wire coming off the back of the tach, that is the gauge back-lighting. Yam gauges have a blue lead coming off the key switch harness that will power up the gauge lighting when the key is on...which IMO is stupid, as who needs their gauge lights on during the day? A smart person ...
