Default 2015 seahunter 41 - build thread

Thought I would share my new build. I looked at all the big CC and the 41 SH just made the most sense for me. I wanted a bigger boat, with more seating (not forward seating), no more than triple outboards, tons of fish storage, big range and a place to lay down with microwave... Sea hunter/ eddie leon has been great to work with and May cant come soon enough!

windlass

just a few tips from experience:

have them mount the VHF's inside the console, and only the microphones outside in the box. It frees up alot of space in the electronics box for wallets, cell phones, etc...

I think twin 7616 with an 8212 is the best set up, if not triple 8215 would be nice

get the external remote for the garmins so you can still have control even when the acrylic is closed; much easier versus opening both latches and using touchscreen when its rough!

and lastly, dont do the bow thruster. Get the joystick system from seastar if possible. It works great on this boat while docking

goodluck and share photos when you get them

thx for the advice. I don't think I can get the joystick as it comes "on the engines" with mercury and they should b arriving any day now????. I don't think ill need the bow thruster but want it "just in case". im hoping the 7616 will b an option... I don't like the trip 8215 in the electronics box as the outer screens seem a bit cutoff on the edges. so with a 12 in the middle I feel like they can move them in a bit? I want at least 1 7600 screen to have the wifi option. I am getting the grid remote. as far as the radios are concerned that's a good idea... I am getting the glove box for wallets and keys though

if you are taller, if could be hard to see the top of the triple 8215 set up (im 6'4")

ideally the 8212///7616 is what I would do.

Make sure and install a drain in the glove box, wouldn't want to put your phone/wallet in there and give them a nice bath. I've seen other manufactures install them with no drain = moldy, musty, and a place for junk to collect

just the small things that count.

another cool thing is to have the boat name engraved in the hardtop fluorescent lights and on the live well lids. looks nice when lit up at night

it's all the small shit that adds up, if I come up with anymore ideas I'll let you know. I ride around on 2 of them pretty frequently.

If I do it I really want the 400s just waiting to get some reviews. I know Eddie is getting the 350s on his 37 and I'll see his performance numbers. My issue is I have new 300s that I hing last year so I would like to see how they perform

Looking good, can only dream of building one myself. Keep up with the pics! Windlass or no? It's a strange thing to see so many boats without it, but I guess we do more anchoring in the Caribbean than you guys do up there? Fun fact: My Seahunter 35 doesn't have a windlass I bought it second hand though haha.
