    Good Afternoon
    I just completed installation of an AM/FM/Satellite Radio, Compass and
    amp meter in my 1992 Carpi.
    I thought I would share the attached before and after pictures.
    If anyone would like some more information, they are welcome to
    e-mail me.

    Nice job. That deck under that mast step was toast. I hope those screws are stainless steel. Is your boat a fixed keel version? Where do you sail? And lastly... What, no big screen with surround sound?

    All kidding aside, congrats on a nice install!:)

    Very Nice

    You do very nice work. It looks from the pictures that your boat is a model 2 with the "tunnel" under the deck. Did you remove the "tunnel"? If so how is the door mounted and how did you seal it? Is the wood teak or oak?

    Thanks

    Good Morning:

    The main door hatch is pretty easy to do. It's the cut outs for the accessories that is time consuming.

    With a little time and patientance, anyone can do it. If not, I could always
    make a hatch panel (providing yours is the same as mine) and send it to you
    without the cutouts.

    Good Morning.

    Yes, I was surprised when the rope caught the trailer as I was pulling the trailer out of the water. I was not a happy camper that day. However, things usually turn out for the best.
    Yes, everything was redone in Oak and Stainless.
    Yes, the boat is a fixed keel. I like it very much. Alot more stable with kids in the boat.
    Sail the waters of Central Minnesota. Lots of Lakes in the Area. Try to get on a different lake every other weekend. Lots of fun.

    HAVE A GREAT DAY
    Paul

    Good Morning Roger

    It was a lot of fun repairing the boat. Yes, the boat is a Model 2 with tunnel.
    I left the tunnel in. The battery for the accessories, is in the very front of the tunnel. I still have room for life jacket in the cuddy tunnel.
    The cuddy tunnel is sealed with caulking. The door hatch is secured to the
    the tunnel with marine velcro. It seems to hold very well. I will see how well the velcro holds up as the summer goes on.
    I used Oak with a marine spar varnish.

    Thanks for the Interest
    HAVE A GREAT DAY
    Paul

    I posted a couple days ago asking about people with stereo's installed before I saw this. I LOVE it. How / where is the battery mounted, and what size / type did you use? Any remote charging terminals? Details on the radio? and antenna?
