At least they're now servicing it rather than letting it corrode away as they did for a while in the past.

Nice set-up. What's the maximum HP rated for the Brig 400? Also - have you considered fitting an auxilliary, or do you have total confidence in your new E-Tec?

Maximum is 50HP...

I'm curious about the speed of this setup, I think somewhere around 35 mph.

You can see from the closeups the PVC shim that I manufactured to cover the huge hole left by the factory fitted recessed compass so that I could mount my chartplotter. As the console is quite small, rather than bolt my VHF to the side (which due to the space taken up by the helm/guages was my only other choice) I've gone for a Standard Horizon VHF mounted inside the console with a remote command mic unit located on the side of the console.
Just bought this boat from the guy you sold it too - really nice set up.

I would be interested to know if you had the original dials disconnected when you fitted the plotter - none of them work now ( speedo, rev counter & trim )
