Stereo Installation

4 posts in this topic

I recently picked up a Sony CDXH905IP receiver that I plan on installing in my 88' Sylvan Backtroller. After doing some poking around it's going to be pretty tough to find a spot to put the stereo without cutting into the foam on either side of the boat. I've looked at some gimbal housing options to avoid cutting into the sides but they all seem to be too small for this unit. I do have an additional cuby located by the livewell pump in the rear of the boat but was wondering what people have used for converting a cuby into a flat, vertical location to install the stereo (making a false wall to fill the remaining space of the cuby for the stereo to be screwed into). I also thought about just making a small housing that I could sit on flat surface and somehow waterproofing it? I'm at a loss for ideas on this and the internet doesn't seem to be yielding much for results.

There's a plastic housing that a dealer can order that will mount to a flat surface on your boat. It looks like this:

It's also called a undermount radio mount.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
