Default Custom dash panel - Mike is the MAN

Just wanted to post this up here in the forum. If you're considering a dash build for your sled, I cannot over emphasize the point enough that you reach out to Mike. Mike created one badass panel for my build with blue led switches. Two Garmin 7610xsv units are being flush mounted into the panel. A big big thanks to Mike and crew for putting this together for my build. I'm fortunate enough to have known Mike for a good while and he has made my entire build much easier and taken care of getting me everything I needed from the Garmin units to the Lumitec lighting. Mike thank you brother

Thomas,

You are more than welcome. It was a pleasure working with you on this project. I can't wait to see the new boat in the water. Thank you for sharing the build with everyone, we all love the build threads for sure.

Mike

Default Detail Service Review.

If anyone is wondering about IM's detailing service, they do a great job.

My boat is lift stored with a full cover to the rub rail.. It's in great shape, but needed a full detail beyond the usual upkeep schedule. After emailing Mike, i was on the schedule within a week.

Crew showed up early and got to work. I went home for lunch and my wife's first comment was "they have been working like crazy." Crew of 3 guys never stopped moving and when they were done, the boat look awesome. From my bedroom I could see the reflection of the dock planks in the hull sides. Everything looked great, from the to hardtop.

Personally, it was well-worth the cost. I enjoy doing stuff myself, but there is no way that I have that kind of time to do a job like that, I strongly recommend International Marine's detail service if you are looking for a quality job.

Thank you very much for the review. I will pass all of your comments to the crew. They really do an amazing job. It is like a night and day difference on most boats we touch.

Thank you very much. We are looking into some other types of panels now. Should be really nice as well. I love these switches.

I am thoroughly satisfied with the panel Mike made for my Cape Horn 21. Mine is the "base model". I didn't need any switches or engraving, just needed a hole covered up & he gave me exactly what I needed.

Thanks Buddy

Mike cut a custom carbon fiber dash for my GPS, Autopilot and Stereo Remote. I did the design, he cut it and it fit like a glove. A+++ on top of that I have ordered several items and have become a Mike/ International Marine Disciple.

Great guy, Treats all of his clients top shelf. I have many vendor choices, I don't need to look any further.

Default Custom Panel

I have been neglecting to post pics of the panel Mike had made for me. I will be posting some rebuild pics of the whole boat later, but I wanted to show the panel Mike made for me. I will try to get a picture tonight of the installed panel with the gauges in it. I am rebuilding a 2002 World Cat 266 TE. The boat had Honda motors and about (it seemed) 10,000 gauge holes on it. I made a drawing of the panel I wanted and Mike did the rest. He did all custom engraving on the switches and made them all back lit also. When I turn on my nav lights, all of the switches light up. The one red switch has an oval light window at the bottom due to me ordering a custom cover somewhere else and screwing it up. The red cover Mike provided was perfect. The wiring on it is top notch and it was built to the exact dimensions I sent him. I believe the panel came out very well.

Panel with just the back lighting on:



Panel back lit with all of the switches on:


Installed with no gauges:

Very nice. Are those the originals, or were they used as a template for new ones?

Here is on for the Whitewater guys. Logo and switch names can be backlit with the use of LED.
