Default New Interior and Cockpit Cover

I just got the boat home tonight from a stint at the upholstery shop. The original interior was all white. It wasn't in bad shape, but being 16 years old, there was some wear and yellowing. I decided to go with a black, white, and silver theme and give it an update. I'm very happy with the job a local guy did for me. Unfortunately, the flooring didn't make it in time. That will be black, brushed Marine Mat with a white Spectre logo and white diagonal lines similar to the stitch pattern in the seats. I also changed to a new black cockpit cover from the original purple.

Other updates include a new steering wheel, new billet cup holders, and a good polish for the grab handles. I also had the controls re-chromed, but still need to reassemble them and install back into the boat.

The cockpit is finally complete with the addition of a new Eddie Marine shifter. It was a 5 month ordeal from the day I purchased it to the day I could finally mount it that included replacing one of the base pieces twice. But, it's in and I can now go boating... once the water level goes down below the no-wake restriction.

For those of you who suffer from OCD like me and hate it when your asymmetrical steering wheel ends up in the wrong position after a ride, you might like this addition. I mounted a thin NRG quick release hub which allows me to correct the orientation. This did require some milling to the top outer edge of the steering wheel hub so it would recess into the NRG hub, though.

During the offseason, I decided to focus on the interior some more. The previous owner installed a nice stereo system. It had two 12" Kicker subs in a custom box under the deck powered by a JBL 1500W amp and eight 7" Alpine coaxial cockpit speakers powered by a JBL 600W amp. The amps are in an enclosed box with a plexiglass window under the port hatch. I already dropped that off with my upholstery guy to recover in black carbon vinyl. Then, I worked on replacing all 8 cockpit speakers with JL Audio M770's. They definitely produce more bass than the Alpine speakers that came out. You really feel the music in your chest!

Red LED lighting is also part of the plan. I got a set of LED rings for the front pair of speakers just to see if I liked them. I do and will be getting 3 more pairs of rings. I will also be updating all of the gauge bulbs to red LED's in addition to adding some red LED strips under the gunwales.
