    +1 on this - It's basically an active charcoal filter and not much to it. I built a refillable one years ago for my 260DA.

    While these are a maintenance item they will last longer if they don't get wet. So don't overfill the tank. We clean our tank with fresh water every time we pump out. Just make sure to not overfill if filling with hose water.

    Remember, just like on a car. Some things can leak under pressure, (IE smoke test) and not leak when a vacuum is pulled and vise versa when the source of the leak acts as a reed valve.

    I just went and looked at the Excel spreadsheet of projects for the winter 2017/18 - 37 items. Number accomplished since the boat got put away in October - 0. Splash is mid April...:eek:

    That's simple. In Excel change winter to spring and you are all good. ;)

    I did my gauges based on the info your provided. I love them. I ended up going with green to match the boat.

    Hi Bracket racer, did you finish the wine rack above fridge install as well do you have pics of TV after installation.

    I just ordered the LED and Holder for the dash, I have been putting off tackling the area behind that TV as i dont want to do it twice thinking a slide out bottle holder with LED's then a hinge TV in front turning towards Port side.

    Thanks Jamie

    Actually, I never even started on that project. Maybe possibly in the next couple of months, but got a bunch of other priorities to knock off first.

    What was the old Raymarine chartplotter in the center? C80? Which model did you find to fit in the existing cutout?

    Bracketracer....thanks for sharing all of this. Very helpful. Question for you: The Raymarine Tri-Data gauge (Depth/Speed/Miles) didn't make it to your new configured dash. Were you able to bring the depth reading from the old Tri-Data (I'm guessing it is NMEA-0183) into your new MFD's?

    Ok, after re-looking at your picture, I see a "picture" of the bottom, so now I'm thinking you replaced the transducer and just upgraded everything with respect to depth measurement? Do I have that correct?

    It was a C80, but I did buy a new dash panel to keep things clean

    Correct. New B60 transducer.
