Default 2018 SeaVee 34Z Build

I have been waiting a long time to finally get some images and get some feedback on the new build I have started. I want to point out that I am not a hard core fisherman, but this will be a boat used for 40% fishing, 40% diving and some fun days as well. I looked really hard at several brands and for what I liked and what I wanted this seem to really fit the bill. About the only thing that has changed from the build sheet below is we are doing the Axiom Pro 16's for Electronics. Very excited and hope to get more pictures as it comes along.

1- 400 watt amp? Got to be a typo?

Going to be a badass boat!

Looks like a sweet bike, congrats.

Why the remote spotlight rather than the LED light bars that seem to be all the rage now?

Figured for me the availability of movement and a simpler beam of light and all around size appealed to me more

Since you're going with Verados, I would recommend looking at Simrad since they produce Mercury's engine information displays/components. You would have the option of installing the separate Mercury Vessel View 703 display (NSS7 Evo3) or just the Vessel View Link module. The VV703 will then serve as a third/backup full-function MFD. It supports radar, dual CHIRP sonar, Structure Scan, autopilot, Structure Scan 3D, FLIR, etc. The VVLink module mounts under the dash and allows full VV functionality on any compatible Simrad/Lowrance display without having a dedicated engine information MFD. I personally like having a dedicated engine display. It's much easier to glance over at it and not have to take up any real estate on your main screen(s). If you choose to stay with Raymarine, you will have the choice of Vessel View, SmartCraft gauges, or just a NMEA Gateway for engine information.

Either way, congrats on your build.

Thank you for the info and insight. I will do some checking to see of the differences. Appreciate it.

Default Some more pics... January Hurry Up.

So I got a few more pics today. It is coming along quickly now and I am very excited. Opted for a Flir camera and got rid of the remote search light. That is about the only changes I have done since the last post. FLIBS had tons and tons of things to think about, but staying on track.

I got a Y-valve from the Head. Simple $150 addition. So when offshore and someone needs to go. I can pump straight out instead of using my holding tank. Which is the goal (never use holding tank). Holding tanks are required by law tho as you must be over 2-3 miles out to pump out.

I wonder if it is too late since it is already being put together.. Will call and check for sure. Thanks for suggestion.
