    No off season here but Cleaning up the back turned into a few upgrades...

    lithium batteries, new pump cartridges, HDS lives for the bow and console, structure 3D, sonic hub, boat buckles, 14Ē atlas jackplate, trim gauge and a battery monitoring gauge.... next up is livescope and maybe some custom rub rail lighting.

    Ordered a suede momo steering wheel, installed Nmea2000 pressure sensors and wired the new transducer inside the ulterra shaft.

    Pretty quiet this year, changed the winch and going to replace the pedestal inserts. Good compound, polish, and wax and sheíll be ready.

    Last year....trick step, Ultrex, full electronics install(3-helix 12ís SI units w/ precision sonar mounts), rewired a full electronics platform with fuse blocks, switches, and dedicated circuits, tires, wet sanded, full compartment and deck lighting, hydraulic pistons on all the lids, vinegar washed the carpet....my wallet appreciates the quiet winter

    Edit...Iím sorry, didnít notice this wash on the gambler page....

    Currently doing trailer bearings, seals, brake lines, building a new dash for my 209, mounting an hds 9 at the console, an hds 12 at the bow, new hatch pulls, new gauges for said dash and possibly a new hydrodynamics jack plate. . .will take pics of the dash and upload when it's finished as I know some guys want to know how different size units can fit in the old 209 console.

    As promised:20200225_200947.jpg20200225_200407.jpg20200225_200400.jpg

    As you can see I still haven't re-installed the grab rail, but for the most part, it was a relatively easy thing to flush mount an hds9(gen2touch) into the dash thanks to the previous owner absolutely cutting the living heck out of it
