Figured I would share some progress pictures of my build because, it's starting to actually look like a real boat and not some figment of my imagination!

Very nice. This is mine, hull 237. Will be done tomorrow.

LUCKY! I guess that means my end of January date is pretty accurate.

Thats an awesome combo-very clean. What silver is that?

Are you picking it up?

Very nice! My 18 has quad 4's but I would rather have the trip 450's. The first picture looks like the cut-outs are for the smaller Garmins with either a vessel view or radio cut out in the middle, then in later pictures it shows the larger Garmins. That's the set-up I have, larger Garmins on the dash and the radio is inside the console. I am thinking of adding a radio remote on the overhead panel - I don't like taking up a big screen for the radio & I feel like I'm constantly changing songs or the volume & switching screens to get back to the radio is a pain in the ass. My phone can change the song but does not adjust volume. Good luck with the rest of the build!

I was definitely coached by my dealer towards 3 motors for performance and handling, as much as I wanted 4.

Thr original cutout you see was a temporary dummy board during the build.

The radio situation has been a sore topic. NASCAT helped me out a bunch when going through my build since heís owned more Nortechs than Trond lol. I ended up opting for the 22 which takes up all the space on dash. I couldíve placed the radio near the physical switches and OSB off on port side, but I didnít want all the clutter. Iím shooting for adding a remote next to my coast key. Well see if there is room. Like you said Iíd just like an easy volume control without screen switching and swiping.

I have vessel view and auto pilot up on my ttop box.

Southbrook 12-11-2019 06:52 PM

Yes, that's what I have - vessel view and auto pilot on ttop box. There is room for the MMR-20 remote above either one - I checked yesterday when I was at the boat. I'll try to stop by the boat in the next few days tol take a picture.

We shall see they yard is working on it. Personally, I preferred to keep it near the steering wheel for quick access instead of reaching up just to lower the volume.

definitely share pics!
