    Added a few more things today.

    Put in a 120v Receptacle with USB and my inverter on/off switch. Fixed the radio and put back the horn button.

    BTW: Permatrim, Y9, are sold out and backordered for about 3 months. hopefully sooner though.

    Great job on the build. I recently installed the permatrim on my 2320 and would recommend it.

    Here are some pictures of the tower with control box. Tom, towerfab helped me build it. The back pad came out not perfect to his standards so he's getting another one made.

    Cheaper if you have Tom install some more rod holders on to the rear legs. He did 6 for tower.

    Worked on installing the microwave. Billy gave me a few good suggestions. The one i bought luckily fit into the main space under the bench seat. I couldnt figure out how to really hold down the right side so i added a bungee and screwed the left side. Its really tight and wont be going anywhere. The microwave sits perfectly flush with the enclosure. If the microwave was a half inch deeper it wouldnt have fit.

    Found a nice little speaker that fits and adds a nice bit of sound. It's not a high end speaker but should be more than enough for on the water use. Roughly 4" wide. if you splice it to existing tweeters, do it before the little orange sound isolator thing.

    Added a LED light bar since i was running wires to the roof. Decided to add one, now or never. Will be helpful for hooping at night. The brackets that came with it didnt work with my radar so i got some aluminum and fabbed some brackets.

    Can't beat $60 for a ton of light.

    I spoke to Joe over the phone and he's running an inverter. However, on my set up, I'm running the Wen 2000 watt gen and it works great, and quiet too! $420 from amazon.

    Billy is right, I'm running an inverter.

    This is the one I installed

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00T...w+inverter&dpPl=1&dpID=51NfjUrx5DL&ref=plSrch


    It works like a champ. The power button switch to turn it on is pictures earlier mounted to the bench seat.

    The inverter is mounted in the bilge battery area. I run a 35 foot extension cable underneath the gunnel to the bench seat.

    You will also need a 35 foot telephone extension for the power switch if you plan to keep it in the cabin.

    If you run an inverter, install it close to the battery.

    I'll try to take a pic of it tomorrow.

    Changed the oil, lower unit oil, and impeller today... was much easier than i thought. The lower unit oil is so easy everyone should do it themselves.

    Put in some "Poor Man's Sea Deck"

    Bought some EVA foam matting, nice on the feet.

    $20 and 20 minutes, measure, cut, install

    Added a quick and easy bilge alarm and float switch. Super loud. $20 dollars for a little extra safety.

    FYI, you can fit 3 batteries in that opening if needed.
