Cool how much?
Not sure yet. I need to settle up with the shop first. I'll let everyone know when the first set comes out.
When are you going to post pictures of your pilothouse?
That’s exactly what I was fearing. Oh well. Be rad when it’s done
Almost there....it’s the last 10% of the project that always takes the longest. Still need to finish rigging, some more metal fab, seating, portlight windows, plumbing, and then non-skid decks.
That is Bad Ass Josh
Thanks Rich. I'll post more when its completed.
Wow awesome that looks factory. I’m jealous
Thanks Travis. I played around with a lot of design ideas, and decided with this half cab to fit the lines and style of the Cabo. I’m stoked on how it turned out.
Does anyone want to share ideas/pics on improving/replacing the support for the 2 batteries on a 226. i want to leave them in the back; looking for some type of new -improved brackets-support. Time for this to happen on my boat. Thanks in advance for your help.
Looks great Josh. Very clean.
My anchor locker will not drain.
I snaked the drain tube from the rear of the bulge. Was able to get the drain from the cuddy clear but the anchor locker is still completely clogged.
Any suggestion? And anyone know where the anchor locker drains to?
My best guess is the bildge
Which model and year Cabo are you referring to?
If you have a '88 to '89 Cabo 216, the anchor locker drain tube (black) feeds into the 3" center drain at the fuel bilge divider wall that's right underneath the cabin door. Two flex tubes feeds into the center drain. The cabin flex drain (white) also feeds into the center drain. I'm suspecting the black flex pipe is clogged at the entrance to the center drain. Mine had soot and decaying stuff sitting at the opening of the 3" drain. Also found a terry cloth rag stuffed in the 3" pipe as a sealant which was probably left there since the build.
Black hose is the anchor locker drain and white is to the cabin drain. Three inch center drain seen in the middle and other end is the small opening on the rear bilge side.
Flex hoses covered with new foam. You can see the cabin door at the right side for location reference. Unfortunately, you need to remove the center console to get access to the hoses that's underneath the foam.
Center drain leading to the rear bilge. If you snaked the center pipe from the rear, the snake probably won't do anything. You many try to feed a semi rigid pipe or tube from the rear and attach it to a compressor and blast air at the hoses or blast compressed air from the anchor locker drain and plug the cabin drain to prevent air from escaping. Worst case scenario is to remove the center console and go that route for a full thorough inspection.
Hope this helps...
This is very helpful. I have a 89. When I snaked it I also found rotting decay a bunch of zip ties even a old lightbulb and electrical wire.
Another small project that turns into a big project. Worth it to get some fish on!!
Thanks for ur help!!! Pictures are clutch
I have a 216 Cabo hull # 003 and my anchor drains outside.
Do you guys know if you can replace the button faces on these buttons? Ours are sun faded. Just the faces, do not want to replace the whole panel.
Our Cabo is newer, 1994
Yes you can bluesea makes them
Got it thanks!
