Of all the pairs or triples we have built, none have been no futher apart than 8 horsepower.
just kiddin around, you have a first class shop, watched your boat tv clips and would be on my list if I needed your expertise.

It was supposed to be but we got held up with gettin the generator running. It was easier for Tommy to get his fat azz in there without the engine in the way. Its all good now. Everything works. You can't rush perfection.

Frank did all the work. I supplied some wire and advice. With all the room in the cockpit (lack of room) I pointed from the dock a lot. He did a great job and I'd hire him if he wasn't so expensive! He's all set with the new mtx thunder marine setup. Sounds nice and a awesome improvement over the 1 pair of 6.5" standard horizon speakers that were in there before.
