Tackleshep, I agree... I think we need to take Bela out and beat the sh*t out of him---either that or we hire him for our next projects!

Thats exactly right. As a matter of fact I don't think Bella belongs here. SP - start a new forum for people who's boat ONLY has 4 TV's.....we don't need to deal with this trash here.

Bella, if you were REALLY cool... you'd start slingin' TV like I do on my SlingBox (poor man's satellite dish) as an additional TV source!

Yeah the slingbox is ok, just burns to much net time on my wireless card.

Just get an auto-detect sat tv dish, mount it to the arch and call it good.

I've heard NetFlix comprises 1/3 of all Internet traffic anymore... amazing! Too bad you don't want to start slingin', as I'm planning on watching the Mariners get the sh*t kicked out of them by the Red Sox tomorrow night while I'm on the docks in Harrison, ID (on Ceour D' Alene Lake) via my SlingBox! I watch about 10 hours a month on it during boating season I figure, and don't accumulate more than a gig or two on my Verizon Wireless (unlimited) plan. I use my crappy BlackBerry Storm as a tethered modem and can do "double-screens" (as I only have ONE TV on Endless Summer!) via an HDMI cable to our 19" TV-DVD player. Sure, sometimes the people on the screen look like Max Headroom jumping around but if I can stream 300Kbps continuously, it's pretty cool. I just have to make sure no one is home watching the Comcast DVR as they can change the channel on me and vice-versa!

I'm so glad I'm a Red Sox fan and not fighting for last place in the ALC. (LOL!!!! Sorry I couldn't resist guys. Just Kidding).

Bella, as usual........very very nice. How much battery life do you get with all that system? Or are you running a genny?

We're in the process of buying (surveying today!) a 1999 3300 scr. Our first boat. I'm noticing in your pictures that the bench seat on the left (as I'm looking at the cockpit) has been removed and replaced with two chairs? How does that work for you? The owner of our boat doesn't like how that bench is attached and doesn't like anyone riding on it while on the water.

Thanks! We'll keep that change in mind and those chairs look awesome. Just hoping the survey goes well. We've found a 1999 with 240 hours and the owner, who lives and kept the boat in Chicago, has never used the stove or the shower. The inside is like new. No windlass however, no electronics and older TV, etc.

Pulverizer, our seating is much the same. I added a fold down leg under the removable seat bottom. Made a huge difference in the stability of the seat. Lots of guests like to sit sideways and with there feet up, seat bottom doesn't move at all now. One of the best and cheapest improvements I have made. I do like Bellas seating, I would just have to remove the upper cushion and mounts. I don't see any screw holes or mounts in bellas fiberglass. Sounds like a sound deal for ya, and welcome!!!

I'd thought about adding the collapsible leg. . . sounds like a great plan.

Survey went well, didn't do sea test yet. The surveyor's estimate on the value of the boat is pretty far under our agreed upon price. So we may have to renegotiate. He said boat prices are dropping like a rock.

Buyer is staying firm on the agreed upon price which is $7,000 above what the survey says the boat is worth. We're evaluating our options, probably looking at another Maxum, a 2002. The one we surveyed was 1999.
