Default 28 Skater Dash Pics Please

Gentleman -

Can you guys help me out? I'm going to re-gauge a 28 Skater that I just bought. Looking for pictures of your dash and wind deflectors.

Thanks,

MDS

That looks like an easy wiring job there David. Very tempting.

Here is a picture of my old boat.
2ea Mercury Race Views, GPS, Stereo and dual bank pyrometers.

Also had an Aeromarine Windshield. In my opinion it is the single best thing I put on the boat.

Wiring is basically non-existent. Just connect NMEA backbone to any thing you want and you have it! With the new Garmin, you have a 10" IPod screen and controls connected to the Fusion, touch screen or engine pramiters. You can send and receive engine and data to every device compatible. Gone are the gauges, wiring and etc. with analogue gages! I love the clean dash that it creates. Ron, "Double Rigged" is the source for all this new age stuff. A great guy also!!

Beautiful boats. I will need to address the windshield or wind deflectors also. I think Rayzor has the deflectors ?? Thanks guys.

Mike, this is what I call the "Gold Standard" of glass cockpits. Everything else is pretty much a compromise.

I'll be combining digital Livorsi guages with the new technology of Fusion stereo and Vessel View linked to a Garmin 7608. All glass would be easier and probably more cost effective.

I'm just too lazy to fill the existing holes, and I still kinda like watching needles twist up...
