Well over thelast couple years I have started a few project threads. This year I have quitea few to finish up in the next couple of months before spring. Thinking ofinstead of have multiple threads I'd tie it into one. People's feed back andideas have been pretty awesome and has help in uncharted waters (well at leastfor me)
This years projects.
New gauges and panels on the upper helm Refinishing the nameplates<br><br>Stern thruster (DIY)

New aluminum radar mount. I will also have a hi gain wifi antenna with a amplified cable run. This will be hooked up to repeater for wifi acess on the boat. The last one was 316l stainless and weighted a ton. Well about 50#

Does that really help increase your range of picking up wifi signal

From what I understand it will. In a couple of months I will find out. a little sceptical myself but you never know unless you try. Main thing is I am amp the cable run to minimize signal loss. Hopefully it dosent cause to much noise in the run.

I appreciate the comments. Hopefully some of these ideas can help others. Below are the panel with the backlites. I cut out squares in the carbon fiber then filled in area with clear epoxy. Last added mini green LED's. this should look pretty cool at night.

This weekend accomplishments

Installed the last gauge and did a lot of wiring. Still a lot more to do

Installed the new trim tab cover I picked up from only1adrian - thank you! Looks great

Installed the door and freed up the 110 volt wiring so that the new panel location would work

Put a coat of sanding sealer on the stairs
