Zodiac 733 rebuild

Solid but not built to carry stuff. It's just built off the rail around the console and that limits it. I didn't want to go to the deck since there isn't enough of that as it is.

They are also great conversation pieces.

Looks like a serious pita to remove. I just was down inside that access plate rerouting my running light wires. I had to cut a new access hole with new deck plate in the side deck just in front of console front edge to help, I can no longer go through the tank space with the integral. Bonus is more storage.
Yah the layup behind those things is serious.

I actually use mine with the harness.

At least they are not sharp.

I have used the boat once since I removed the lifting eyes and it was much nicer. Considering the very few options I have to use them I think it was a good idea.

Sorry I was asking earlier about the T top. Did you do that yourself? I'm thinking of building off the existing handrail also. There were some boats in the chesapeake that had mongo T tops mounted that way. They tilted with the console and were tall enough to clear the transom. Getting out of the sun is pretty critical here esp. when there are family along.

Thanks,
Karl

I had somebody build it for me. There is a stainless guy in slo that has been doing it forever. He used to be down in Ventura for a long time. When I first met him at the beginning of the summer he was building a t-top for a boat like mine but a diesel that is down in Santa Barbara. It was smaller enough to flip with the console.

Jason; Is that the Lowrance broadband radar? Let me know how you like it once you get it up and running - that's on the list of add-ons for my boat.

yes, Lowrance 3G. I didn't go 4G as I wanted it after I got stuck in the fog once coming back from Catalina and just wanted something good enough to see cargo ships and other small boats operating in the fog.

Got it running yesterday. I have no idea how to read it. Turned it on in the yard and assume I am seeing house and trees....
