Post Transforming my 1992 Maxum 1800SR for watersports action

First of all I'm a "new be" to all of this but I was looking to somehow share my story.

It all started in Mar 1992 with my purchase of the 1800SR. A lot of water under the bridge since then and two growing boys that took to water like fishes. Their quest for more action led to the addition of a wakeboard tower (Skylon "Swoop Extreme") in June 2008 and then a complete stereo system upgrade in May 2010 complete with a custom speaker box for the tower. Photos of my boat can be seen online at www.ridekawa.com. Summer time is for boating and watersports!

Exclamation Website is a work-in-progress

Thanks for checking out the site. The chair is a "Sky Ski" and it's owner and KAWA member Jason Haege is quite good at it. This past weekend he had a fellow along that has a special model that gets up to 30 ft of air, totally awesome. Sorry, due to back problems I'm just the captain of my boat now so I'm an observer.

Fellow Boating & Water Enthusiast!
Finally was able to upload some recent pictures of my '92 Maxum 1800SR to my album which is public. Check it out. Boat was officially named and badged "Go Big or Go Home" this past summer. The celebration and champagn were fantastic. Can't wait for the winter to end and get back on the water.

Looking good.
Could you give me some more details on your sub.
Is it in it's own enclosure in that front bow compartment?
Did you build it? How was it done?

Jordan (Hogger) - I would be more than glad to share how it was done and the subwoofer specifics. I had my post all compiled but time logged out and lost it all. Send me an email to sharondr@htc.net and I'll get back to you that way.
If somebody knows how to keep from getting time logged off let me know please. I'm too slow of at this thing. Thanks, "Go Big of Go Home"
