  1. Honestly I don't remember. But I think it was discount inboard marine. Pretty common kit though even if overpriced.
  2. That looks incredible @Armandaleg! Strong work! Great use of space... you have me wondering if there's something I could do better with that space in mine. Thankfully the previous owner paid for a sub box already... that's not my forte.
  3. Simple solution... sometimes we forget how easy it is to simply wrap wood in vinyl for a more stock look.
  4. Ok thanks. Yeah mine are basically suitable to hold the removable soft coolers, which we’ve used quite a bit, but we tend to boat and camp for 4-5 days at a time and burn through lots of ice for sure. I’ll come up with something. Thanks
  5. @DnHWake so your boat didn’t have a built in cooler at all, right? Just a removable igloo? I’m tearing into mine a bit and was gonna ask if you removed the built in first, but I think I have a different setup. Mine (07 247) has two plastic “ice chests” (tubs) built in, but is paper thin with maybe 1/4-1/2” foam layer behind the shell and walls. Thinking I might just use these tubs as the outside base and build inward... I would really only gain 1/2” at most by starting over. Funny thing too, I never knew my boat had lights inside the ice chest but I found an led strip in there. It doesn’t work so I never noticed the trigger. Don’t know if it was stock or previous owner added.
  6. how do the seams look after? The video is great, but only shows the bottom side, where he does the work. Can you see seam when you flip it back over? Is it undetectable or barely noticeable? Or is it obvious? Thanks.
  7. yes... more 247s to learn from. why aren't you posting more? haha
  8. Cool thanks. It’s one of my favorite projects on here because we camp all the time and constantly shuffle ice in and out. I need to make one. Our 07 247 has two coolers built in but they are paper thin. The soft coolers work better sitting inside the built ins but still not cuttin’ it. Appreciate the feedback
  9. @DnHWake any changes you’d make to your cooler? I’d like to make one either later in summer or off season. Do you feel the seat is insulation enough with the right seal? Thanks
  10. Looks to be the case. ie A 3.5” marine hose will fit over a 3.5” stainless mandrel. The stainless pre bent mandrels are O.D. measured
  11. Wow. Very cool. How did you mount them? And what does the surface look/feel like? Looks great no matter what
  12. yeah.... please do! Would love to read that one! Also you can get a Malibu wedge switch cover, although the right edge of rocker is curved. So would work better as right side book end.
  13. Ok I’ll be running mc1. Look forward to it. Most likely installed down lower since my dash is different (well it’s same as your new one but I want to keep lcd). Thanks for your input
  14. So how do you like the Revs vs Roswells? We love ours. Wish I had the sinister amps too... ours our the older, larger Syn4 and Syn2s.
  15. Nice upgrade. What a clean solution as well.... It really opens up back there. Can't wait to see the exhaust FAE project if you go that route. When I did mine I used Burns Stainless, he had quality stainless, a little pricier, but gave a small discount for wake garage members. There's a good number of stainless mandrel suppliers now. Great project thanks for sharing
