Hey im thinking of getting a clarion remote for the back of my boat. would be heaps of help if people posted pics of where they placed the remotes so the rider can set the tune before riding. Also how hard was it to install??

Mine is located here, but the sony remote is very sensitive and when landlocking someone is usually sitting on the rear of the sundeck facing the surfer. You have to be carefull not to bump the remote with your leg, or it will change cd to radio on change stations or something...

Same as WakeNup. Works sweet, just don't lean against it.

John, Great job on the Gator Grip. How did you cut it? I'm about to add it to my boat in the same place. Also should be finishing the tunes this week and have two Sony Remotes with one going to the rear like above, thanks for the pics.

WakeNup, Yes I have had the same problem with people in my boat. My sister inlaw was climbing in the boat and put her hand on the remote she didn't relalize she was cranking up the volume on the stereo to a level that would make your ears bleed, At first I was like WTF is happning my stereo is "Posessed" after that we all had a laugh and now know "Watch out"

Monster: I used a razor and a straight edge for the long cuts and scissors for the corners. It was easy. Just make sure you make patterns first. I used light cardboard for the patterns.

Gatorgrip is the bomb, I used a little more than John, cause he has graphics on his stern.

X-acto (sp?) knife also works well. Just cut from the back side (adhesive side) w/ a straight edge and you're money. Gator Grip goes well w/ Monster Towers. Wink Wink

Well for the location by the back platform on the vertical wall it serves to save from bord dings. On the horizontal surfaces it keeps you from slipping on your arse.
