So many things to do

Started mounting some powerful spotlights and fairing out the console which looks like swiss cheese. There have been a few times at night where being able to read the waves becomes critical. We also want to make new lettering for the boat and add 'Fat Bastard' in the same font.

Where are you guys fitting the stereo? I'd like to hook up something, but I can't find a spot in the console for the head unit...

Stoo, there wont be a head unit. The amplifier will be mounted as high up in the console as possible and the inputs will be run to the cubby under the seat. The sat radio will plug in there and will be interchangeable with an ipod. The previous owner of the boat had a head unit mounted directly below the steering wheel but I have put our switch panel there.

Linda, I would have to agree with Stoo on the build quality of Hurricanes. Since this is my first true rib I don't have too much to compare it too but everything on it seems over engineered. I will also be looking to upgrade to a 5-6 m hurricane or Avon next year. Good luck

Thanks Bryan. I hadn't thought of that. West MMarine carries that set-up you have so I might do the same thing....

Stoo, when I have it all wired up I will let you know how loud it is. I would shop around though, I got one off Amazon for a pretty good deal.

Ahhh... and the first coat of rescue orange is applied. Waiting to see how the first coat dries before adjusting paint ratio.

Topcoat issues

Well it appears our first layer of topcoat is a failure. It has been over 48 hours and it still scratches off easily with a fingernail. From doing a little research it seems that our first layer was too thick and temps at night were too cold. Going to need to buy a lot of sandpaper and beers for this weekend.
