Electrical upgrades

  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I just purchased my used boat this spring with a very basic battery setup. I knew I wanted another battery, improved lighting and an entertainment system but with a budget in mind. I found a generic double din dvd/tv/ipod controller/bluetooth/fm stereo on ebay with good reviews for a very low price. I installed it above the galley with a weather station clock hanging in the middle to cover the access hole for the install. I also installed a tray on the right side to hold the wires for ipod and aux plug along with a spot for my phone/ipod. I added 2 regular 6X9 speakers to the forward berth area and 2 6.5" Alpine Marine speakers to the cockpit. Also in the picture is a small galley tray table i made to use instead of the large table insert for added counter space without taking too much cabin space while on the boat but not eating.
