The boat is only a 230 cc Everglades and even with that, the screen takes up the whole console area with the glove compartment. A 7212 (what I planned on putting in) might not have fit in after measuring today; the 1040 is damn near the same size as a 7212 dimensionally with the buttons and actually, it was the top to bottom that was real close.

I'll have about an 1.5" on either side now.

I am looking at a Pathfinder 2400, I think it'll do two NSS9 Evo2, unfortunately the 12s are too large. Go big

Best I have to illustrate the console:



I'll take some next week after it's installed.

Nice boat

It was on the list when I bought the Everglades. New dealer in my town had them with the new Yamaha's on there, did you get the new 250 Yamaha?

Currently I have a Cobia 237. I fish out of Key Largo and am feeling I want something smaller that is more easily handled solo, and something I can run to Flamingo in through sub 2' waters. The Cobia has the same engine as yours I think.

I have a Yamaha 300.

Did you look at the Everglades 243? Real skinny water with off shore capabilities.

I looked at the Everglades CC and Bay Boat style when shopping for the Cobia. At the time I was looking harder at the bigger of the two, the CC. But now I am looking for smaller and I think the Pathfinder is about as big as I want to go. I think those boys at MBC know how to cram a boat full of storage. I traded in a Pathfinder 2000 and miss that boat . It would be too small for us now anyways. We will see, I may look at the Everglades again but I think the Pathfinder is hard to beat.

Good luck in your search, I know how fun it is searching for a quality boat

I have seen it on a 230 CC at the dealer, but the edge just hits the flat of the bottom dash and the flange will be at the very top of the dash, zero relief.

Gil talked to me for about a half an hour explaining the best possible combination for how I fish, with some room for possible expansion or marketability down the road, I appreciate that type service. Not the: "if you want it good, if not, better yet" you get from most other electronic sales guys. No push to overspend or buy the biggest, most expensive thing out there.

Again, thank you Gil
