Make sure that when they do the installation that they use exclusivly stainless steel screws and bolts. I like to bolt in the speakers with fender washers and nyloc nuts to make sure that they never loosen. Some places I have seen use wood screws and they will loosen over time (think rubrails). You would not beleive how many boats I have seen with steel or even sheetrock scews holding speakers and amps in. I also try and use cushion clamps to hold the wire harnesses in place.

I'm glad you replied to this thread. Didn't you use to fly out to the left coast and do free installs for customers?

Trouble maker! LOL

I used to fly out there once a month and visit the now wife. So I would try and line up some work out there so it would always be a business write off for me. I would just ask the guys to cover the costs so it was a win win for everyone. Maybe a trip is in order, my back is feeling really good as of late and Tank is the best at fixing that!

Are you sure that wouldn't be a win/lose?
