    She landed Friday night from Savannah Georgia .
    Ricky Malin towed her 2600 miles for $2600 bucks . ( I just realized that) if anybody needs a hauler , Ricky was great.

    She is in excellent shape despite normal wear and tear scuffs but the majority will buff out when I have professionally detailed . (I gotta do that at least once I feel)

    The only thing that really sucks is I believe the boat yard poked the cowling or something with a forklift when they were fitting to the trailer because the crack in the cowling where it got poked . It definetly happened after the survey. It’s not major but it will have to be repaired .

    Specs :

    2014 2320
    300 hp with 402 hours
    53k for vessel + 4K for new aluminum trailer

    Spent Saturday afternoon removing a ungodly amount of stickers off the boat and the corresponding glue .

    Took a couple hours today and started cutting holes in it . Installed the Go9 display. That was definitely a learning experience , I have never done that.

    This weekend installing :
    G4 Radar
    Rocket launchers , boats unlimited in Costa Mesa
    Totalscan

    Next weekend installing
    Lone star drum winch
    Propedestal
    Permatrim

    Then bleed and service at my local shop and actually use it . Hopefully ......

    Awesome. Keep us posted. How thick was your dash? Mine was super thick and was a pain to cut

    Jmart , when you ran the totalscan through the transom did you cut off the plug that goes into the head unit and resplice it back in on the other side ? That way you could really minimize the hole diameter ?


    Also , where do you guys buy your marine electrician connectors, splices , and fittings ? I am looking for good stuff with shrink wrap built in if possible

    I find the hardest part is finding the right hardware.

    Thanks man, I have been watching your builds , videos , and Instagram photos for the past 6 months .

    Your videos on YouTube convinced us to get the 2320 not the 2520. 2520, just too big

    Thanks !

    More holes tonight , hopefully it’s the last for a while.
    Cutting holes in the dash is super nerve racking .

    If I go bigger I’ll replaced the Lowrance with a 12 inch ok the dash later .

    Radios and stereo gonna get upgraded later . I don’t know with what yet .

    Mounted radar tonight and did a little wiring .

    You guys only show the purdy pics when your done. Here are some down and dirty chaotic ones lol. Mocking up where I might put the nema backbone. I would think you would want it accessible for the future Incase you wanted to add additional devices . I think?

    What is everybody doing with all that excess radar cord ? Cut and crimp on a new Ethernet plug? I got the crimpy tool thingy. ( sorry for the technical talk)

    I bet your total cost will end up between 74k-78k after all the goodies(electronics, pumps, bait tank, rocket launcher, lights, windlass and anchor)

    Ya I should have bought your boat. But I don’t want to talk about that

    I am being honest

    I hope your right .

    But your boat was a steal, knowing what I know now.

    I honestly didn’t know anything. It’s hard to know how the costs add up until you do it.

    It’s a avalanche of money. And I haven’t even gotten it wet yet .

    Yes for sure , airmar b175hw seems the way to go.

    I need to see how the total scan works first ( since I already have it ). If I like it I’ll run on the Lowrance and ditch the thru hull the Lowrance is using . And run the airmar on the simrad .
