Jabe, Are you sure you have enough switches and instruments on your dash? It's starting to look like an airplane cockpit. Is that a cup holder under the Tiny Tach? Your boat actually does look fantastic.

THAT boat is, without a doubt, in the best of hands. She is looking beautiful! What a unique windshield, so many of us are envious.

since comming back from Arrowhead, my lazy butt is restoked.........started the Javelin up yesterday on Oscar, after its long winter nap........starter barely turned and that 30hp fired right up......hope too stress test it on the water very soon, then transplant it onto the DR.......
worked on the final scrub of the fore and center decks........and mounted the windsheild, wasn't too keen on the center being free standing in that distance so i made a center clip to hold er' down.......
it's bin a good sidetrack to ease my way back, dang withdrawals coming home, so much to love down there........:biggrin:

Hey Neil,

What solar panel did you install in the new boat? It looks different from the one in Oscar.

How many watts?

I'm in the market....
