Thread: Bit of advice

    Re: Bit of advice

    All most ready to start with the Electrickery.
    Fitted up near all of the switch panels and radios etc, with just the anchor winch to be re fitted and the bilge pump down back to be fixed in place.
    Sounders will go in last thing, but have made provision for them.
    Then it's the fun stuff. Not putting a time frame on the re wiring, just want to get my head around what I'm doing as I go along with it.
    It's great to see progress now, with the finish line getting just a wee bit closer......

    Yes, the anchor winch switch is crooked, not screwed off yet

    Cheers Brett,
    I'm to a stage now, that I'm seriously getting over the " rebuild" thing and just want to get it on the water.......
    But I admit that this stage of fit out is the most enjoyable of the whole process......
    I'll re visit that statement when I'm in the middle of the re wire !!.

    Now theres a classic sows ear into silk purse.
    You've done a stirling job - most impressive.
    So much more enjoyable when they tick all your boxes. It is now Col's boat the way Col likes it, which is as it should be.
    Cudos to you mate. Bloody nice result.

    Thanks Giddy,
    Not without a few hiccups along the journey, but had some great advice here from those that have been there before.
    But Hey, not done yet, Still a few more tasks to complete, but feels like I've near broken it's back.
    Picked up my new aerials today, Had some issue getting an am/fm 2500mm aerial from pacific, but she finally arrived. Couldn't wait till passing the factory tomorrow, had to head down and screw them on, stood back, had a dart or two and ticked another one off the list........
    Still a fair way from launching, but a lot more happy with how she's tracking....

    Hi Guys,
    I've decided,after initially saying this new transom will have no holes in her, To put a thru hull strainer type pickup for the deck wash and live bait pumps.
    Question, Is it prudent to put the thru hole strainer, so as it comes thru into the bilge area, next to the bilge drain plug.
    It would be convenient there, in my way of thinking, as it should then be always under the water line.
    The previous set up was run over the transom with heaps of brackets and screw holes down the transom, so I suppose if I do one big hole, prep it properly I shouldn't have an issue,,,,, just placement .
    The second question, I would obviously have to have a by pass V switch in the line, to either use the deck wash or run a live bait pump,
    ( previously the pump sat on a aluminium bracket on the outside of the transom, which had a small pipe pick up off that).
    So just wondering if it can successfully be set up like that ??
    I guess I would have to have a live bait tank pump, set up in the actual bilge area, so it's basically at the water line and pump to the live bait tank from there. Does this sound like a suitable set up ?

    The top plug hole is directly into the bilge..

    nice job, looks most impressive. Q. the white speakers are they hooked up to your radio(uhf) or are they the fusion speakers blue tooth style.

    Re: Bit of advice

    Hi Cat,
    Not hooked up to anything yet. but they are the fusion speakers, They will have wires to the fusion head unit.
    I'm not so much of a "tech " person as such, as long as I can listen to the footie or maybe the cricket, if it's on, I'll be a happy camper.
    I do believe I can hook them to both the fusion and the VHF, but that's well above my tech abilities. I'll see how the inbuilt speaker in the Vhf head set and inbuilt microphone speaker go before I make a decision. Was originally looking to mount the speakers on the sides, but just didn't have the room on both sides, so I just fitted them in the new bulk head......
