I spent all afternoon working on the boat today. Installed an alpine head unit, 2 sets of polk MM651UM 6.5"s, pulled all new speaker wire through the boat, made some battery cables and installed a 2nd deep cycle battery.

Yep! two screws takes off a panel to access the whole ass end of the head unit, wiring isnt hidden inside of 500 different channels and running through secret passages or wormholes to different dimensions, tons of room in my engine compartment too. I did have to molest the side panels of the bench to put my speakers in though. Only a couple of holes.

if any car manufacturer had the problems/build quality of a boat manufacturer, none of them would exist.

lost a bearing on my trailer..... Got to the harbor this afternoon and my bearing buddy was gone on one wheel. Didnt think anything of it, launched the boat, did my thing all day and came back. Took a look at it once we were done for the day, all the rollers totally gone out of the races on the bearing, probably an inch of play in the wheel every direction. Limped it home and just got it apart now. To it all apart and drove out what was left of the bearing races, the casting on the hub has about a 2" crack on it. FUCK!

Got someone welding it up for me in a few minutes though and picked up new bearings. Hopefully it goes smooth

thanks to panda for the video! Went out for a quick blast down the lake shore this morning waiting on a couple people to show up for the air and water show. The lake was like glass, doing around 65 in the video.
