On my 08 Malibu LSV my speakers were finished so I bought all new Wetsounds speakers and I am going to have them installed this week. I'm also going to replace my swim pad probably by Seadek fairly soon. That should make me good for the summer.

What did everyone else do?

So far I installed custom trailer wheels a new Fulton F2 jack and winch and sent the diamond plate step pads off my trailer to powder coat.I am still waiting on my Rev 410's with LED'S a boost box volume control and a custom pad from seadek. Also not exactly for the boat but my truck goes in Friday for a front end leveling kit and new wheels and tires

Converting my Sunsetter to auto-ballast.

I already had the box bag (all Fly High stuff), upgraded my cheapie 500lb locker bags to 750's...and putting those in is about all I have done, for the massive 1 minute that took.

I have everything else purchased and hope to start the install in a couple of days. 3 Johnson reversible pumps, all wiring, hoses, switches, through-hull's, etc. Will be nice to stop having to manually fill bags.

I'll also be installing a Perfect Pass Stargazer hopefully by next month. I need to install the LED Tower nav light, though fishing those wires is going to be a PITA.

Sold my '11 and 'ordered a '12. I still need to get my z5 frame powdercoated to match the tower and install a wetsounds system in my new boat when it comes in in a few weeks.

How much does it cost you to get the Z5 frame powder coated? I'd love to do that with mine, would look so much better if it was black.

The anticipation of Chatt's new ride... It needs its own thread. White z5 frame?

Stereo
New interrior speakers(polk momo), new amp rack and battery box along with changing battery bank to a 4d and 29.
New rev410's (arc 300.2 on each pod)

All new vinyl interrior
Having pivot joints welding into the front hoop of my titan tower so it'll fit in the garage.

New f2 jack on the trailer
New brakes and fluid.

Still have to tune the system when they ship the 410's and wetsand / acid wash the hull to get the texoma stain out of the boat.

Yes, going white with the frame this year. I'm dropping off the frame this week and I'll let you know what I get charged. Just had 81lbs of wetsounds gear delivered to my office! Ordered all of my stereo installation wiring this morning. All I need now is a boat and a pair of rev 410s!

Modified swim step, still need to install dual batts, transom lights, and replace trailer brakes. If I have enough cash, then maybe plumb in my existing Enzo sac.

Bought my boat 12-6-11 and have been doing little things here and there. Moved batteries all the way forward in lockers and put one on each side, put ball valve in hull (factory ballast did not have one), cleaned off residue from grip tape on trailer and replaced it with gator grip, cleaned and oiled teak platform, installed new sub and amp, replaced rear speakers, installed blue LEDs, replaced all trailer lights with LEDs, new trailer tires, a few upholstery pcs replaced, and cleaned a lot.

Dropped in two new blue tops, which I relocated to a spot underneath the observers seat to free up some storage space. Fixed up the wiring for the batteries, now need to do some trim work on the sub and amp racks.






Also working on a box for another JL 12w3 to go under the helm. Had to notch out the back of it to allow for all the cables coming up through the floor.

Hey mallenger, can you tell me where did you got the splitter valve? Looks like it would work great.
Thanks

Still gotta get the windshield pulled so I can install some speakers on the dash. Hopefully this weekend.

Next step > installing 1" vented loop, 1" Bosworth SeaLect Directional Y Valve, and moving my Jabsco pump that dealer installed at bottom of engine compartment (below water line and slowly draining my fat sac in the rear port compartment)...also upgraded to the green impeller!

Then...taking her to get tinted and my Wetsounds 420 EQ installed next week and should be good to go for the season (for now!)

Custom swim step build for my V226. 2 inches narrower at it's widest point and 5 inches at the end of the taper. Best of all no 2 inch lip underneath! Took it out for a test run last weekend and with about 1400 lbs., ballast and 5 people in the boat it didn't touch the water. Template kit for a custom Seadek pad is on the way.
Near future plans include a ballast and prop upgrade.
Oh yeah, I guess I should mention that the notch on the Starboard side is for a Sky Ski. Hoping it doesn't affect that side in case I have any goofy riders along.

I love the sky ski cut out. I am thinking about having a custom piece of thick (1 inch) plastic or nylon shaped like the bottom of my board and have a cut out put on that. Then I was thinking I could use some type of giant c-channel locks to hold it to the swim platform. It is in my mind, just need to get it on paper and see if it will work. Let me know how this works out for the surf wake. I have been thinking about adding a ladder to the swim platform - not sure if that would drag in the water and screw up the surf wake either.

I get that joke all the time - my wife likes the sign - says it was made for me.

For real - the hump is 4 feet wide - guess that makes it a hump and not a bump.

WOW and the speed limit over the hump is 20mph. What's the normal speed through the neighborhood?

Ram mount. Just make sure you get the locking large suction cup one and not the smaller one. It will hold up to any bumps/rough water and never fall.

Still have carpet I just replaced the factory Sano with SeaDek, and sorry I group the whole lakehouse as "the boat", in terms of spending budget.
