Yeah, Looks fairly straight forward. I do have to get everything else networked together. Never seen a bigger ball of wires in my life. With all the network cables and the rest of the boats systems. I'll plug away at it.

Are the black wires positive and the red ones negative?

I went with a U-Flex silversteer steering system, Tilt wheel, 2 rams and tiebar. Man, this product looks like really high quality stuff. Hope to have the motors back next week. Lots of wiring to do under the dash yet. Some pics attached and one of some Bow Bling. Getting there slowly.
That looks nice!

1 vote for never using the boat and putting it in a museum.

If it was mine, I'd be afraid to get it bloody or scratch anything. She's a thing of pure beauty!

I know the first boo boo is gonna stick out like a sore thumb. It is fairly flawless, but I plan on using it and getting it salty and bloody.

That 35 Contender of yours is sweet also. Thanks for following my thread. Got most of the rigging done in advance of the arrival of the painted motors. Plug and play is going well.

I've been meaning to subscribe to this thread for a year now, and since it's been bumped to the first page again by someone else, I finally have the opportunity to do so. It looks glorious, thank you for sharing this with us.

I like this transom view a lot for some reason. You'll have to get one similar while it's sitting in some pretty water. This is just a work of art

Steve, that pulpit turned out awesome! Have you thought about putting something under the chain so it doesn't bang around? Sea deck maybe? Or does it stay under enough constant tension w/ the windlass?

Are you going to the Suncoast Boat Show? I saw 4 (Stamas) boats coming in New Pass on Wednesday that l assume were heading to the show. One of them even had white Yamaha's! They were all gorgeous, but I think yours would put them all to shame.
