Hi everyone. Todays updates includes the following:
Cut in new 6.5" Holes for the MB Quart Speakers, and 10" Sub. Ran new wires to Kicker KMC10 media center in dash, and hid the amp above the aft cabin (NA710.5 5 channel.) Sounds amazing. Wish I could get my car to sound this good.
Took the old Prop off, put on a new blackmax 15.5 x 18p 3 blade. While this was perfect for my 2452 w/ a 5.7L, I feel like its the wrong prop for a 2400 SCR w/ a 5.0L. Max speed was about 38mph @ 4400 rpm and cruise was around 30-32 @ 3600. The previous owner had a 15x17 3 blade and swears he could hit 41mph which seems incredible to me, but now Im thinking maybe he was right?
Anyhow, we also took the lower outdrive off and put in a new impeller. This outdrive is less than 3 years old, but rather safe than sorry. The fluid looked and smelled old.
The wrap pictured is a blue and black granite wrap which I'll be doing the inside cabinets and counters in. Wood trim is being covered over in gray.
We did a full oil change and filter as well.
I took the 3 battery set up with 2 separate selectors back down to 2 total batteries, and put in a new battery charger, and new marine batteries.
I'd like to change out the bilges. Any suggestions? They appear to be original. When we put the boat on the water, it took on zero water however, which is amazing to me.
Pulled out the old fuel, water, and waste chrome fills and put in black plastic with colored caps.
Edge sealed all the vinyl at the water line.
Put on a skeg shield and bow shield, since the rollers were tearing up the new vinyl. And the skeg was alittle chewed up, so the outdrive looks nice and new now, with the blue fin as well.
All my old stuff is for sale too! So if you have a Maxum SCR and are looking for excellent condition gauges, dash bezels, dash trim, the OEM depth sounder lcd / alarm setup, a white Standard Horizon VHF, OEM steering wheel, JVC speakers, a Bayliner 15" steering wheel or snap in 2452/242 carpet, humminbird fishfinder, or perko battery switch, its all pictured here:
