Default share your winter upgrades, it's too quiet on here!!!

It's been to quiet in the AT forum. Anyone doing anything exciting for next season? I got a chart plotter I will be building into the dash. 7 inch simrad touch screen. And my motor needed a refresh. It was a 468 with BDS 871 blower. Well long story short is....it's getting a stroker crank and some more goodies. Motor builder says it will be a 496 when it's all done. Hoping for 800 or more horsepower. It's a 98 25 foot tantrum

Not much this winter.

- Drives opened and inspected, were fresh last spring.
- Removed fridge, installing a matching door like what's already in the boat for storage (awesome or put a duffle bag and then some in the space)
- Add 2 more speakers if it doesn't sell quickly in the spring.

Well I guess I'm a little jealous that people are doing the "fun" stuff. I dont even have a radio yet. I guess new motor is fun. I'm broke!!!!!

I'm hoping I can make it work. Going to get rid of my gaffrig GPS speedo I think. It doesn't work and the plotter should display speed. I'm going to move some gauges to the port/passenger side if I have to. I don't think I really NEED to have my boost gauge on my side. The other ones are important. I'll post pics when it's done. Going to be a few months since we have 15+ inches of snow coming on Tuesday
