Where do you have your speakers installed. Do you have a SUB?
The factory speakers were mounted to the hardtop. I added two Stryker speakers to the stainless PYT. No sub and I don’t plan to add one. The sound is clean and plenty loud enough as is.

C10 installed and cleaned up wiring. Tested all electronics and NMEA network. Everything is working.

Got more gel coat from Harold today so now I can finish up the gel coat work hopefully this weekend.

I had to move the trim tabs switch to fit troll mode where I wanted it. I’m happy with the way the dash turned out.

My nmea network consists of:

Nmea power
AIS radio
Halo radar
Evo3 12
GO7 XSR
AP44 controller
Bluetooth handheld AP controller
C10 gauge
AP compass
AP computer
Motor diagnostics

Nice! Everything where you want it. That’s the fun of customizing. It’s coming along beautifully.

I wish I had the balls to tackle this on my Rock Harbor. I watch the thread regularly

That boat is Bristol, what a beautiful transformation. Just in time for the season.

Break in period today. 24.6mph cruise at 4K. Top speed was 42mph at 5500. Still had a little more but slowed down because sea conditions didn’t allow. Pretty happy and was fun to break in with my Grandpa on Father’s Day Weekend.

How is the noise when running? Quieter? Do you think this motor would be strong enough to push a Rock Harbor?

The outboard is virtually silent at idle and still quieter than the IO at cruise.

Rock Harbor is quite a bit more weight so not sure.
