Official 510 DA Owners Group

Call me "unaware", but I never realized how much space we didn't have access to on the drawers in the galley. I replaced the first set of slides tonight on the top drawer. I can see the back of it when it is open...LOL

Now we can actually reach things we put behind the tray. The next 2 drawers will get done this weekend. This is really a simple upgrade that will be worth it to whomever is operating in the galley during the boating season.

Your upgrade's never cease to amaze me. Excellent job again Sir.
I see a little Cutco action in there, their quality, performance and customer service has been great with some gift's we have received Interested in your experience?

I have no idea why I never thought of these simple upgrades in the past 17 years of having Sea Ray's???

That particular knife was a seasonal gift along with a couple others over the years from my favorite local marine audio company, Swift Audio. You buy enough speakers, amps and Fusion, they treat you well. LOL

Cutco are amazing knives! I have their fishing knife and have used it for 15 years now, every year it fillets salmon like no other. The scissors are a GREAT gift as well!! I really like their products and using them as gift to clients is well respected. This year I am switching from Maui Jim to Cutco for many of my customers. (How many pair of sunglasses can you use, unless your a boater???) We have several different Cutco knives in our kitchen and they are the "Go To" knife!!

On another note: Your contributions to another forum are well received!!! :p:cool: Where do you find such amazing pics? (PM me with the answer. LOL)

I've been following this thread for a while now but figured I'd finally contribute a post :)

I picked up some Cutco this year for home (at my marina of all places) and was pleased to learn Cutco owns Kabar. I've been buying Kabar military themed knives for my teams for years as Christmas gifts. Love those things......and the Cutco stuff too!

Well, we are officially committed to the cockpit re-upholstery project. We are really excited about this enhancement. We live on the boat essentially 5 months out of the year so we decided to really enhance the "livability" with new, more modern upholstery. It should be done before Thanksgiving!!

Today she just came and marked it all up and made sure everything will line up properly once it is off the boat and in her shop.

Finally got the rope light under the fwd. stateroom removed and installed the new neon full spectrum strip. It looks so much better!!! This was a PIA at the switch side, but got it done.

My fiberglass guy has some extra time on his hands so we decided to wet sand the port side hull and get some dock rash and ugly spots smoothed out. The gel below the rub rail looks like it had "acid" wash etching to it. It was really strange, but it's gone now! Finished pics will be done tonight.

Glad to see they got the site situation all squared away!! I knew something was really strange on Sunday morning when trying to login.

Great job, did you have to install slides on drawers and cabinet itself?
Can’t remember if there are slides in drawer already

The slides are 2 parts, 1 attaches to the drawer and the other the cabinet frame on both sides.

To be honest, these 3 drawers took as long as the 2 in the fwd. stateroom. Each drawer had a different mounting configuration so it took me a little longer to get them leveled and balanced. The drawer face's are all different as well as the drawer depth on each making the hardware mount different on all 3. The bottom took me the longest amount of time due to the slide out island.

Thank you and I believe the forward staterooms were 16” what are the kitchen ones?

Correct, 16" Fwd. stateroom
Top 2 drawers are 18" and the bottom drawer is 14" at galley.

As a sidenote, there is enough room in the 2 fwd. drawers to go with 18" slides and get even more extension from under the bed. My guess is that you wouldn't be storing more than 50lbs in them either...LOL

If you wanted to do the drawer under the microwave it is 20". I forgot about that one until just now and need to get the slides on order for it.

NOTE: Get the self closing model slides. This will aid in keeping them shut when underway. To do this you will be removing the angled metal "stops" that keep the drawer from opening all the way. BUT it's worth it!!

I appreciate all of that
Thank you
 
Hi Raymond,
Are you asking if I have the template files? No, I do not. It may be possible to get them, but I'm not 100% sure I can.
 
One more item off the "Admiral's" to do list! She wanted easier access to charging ports for the Kindle, iPad, phone etc.. When I bought them I didn't think I would put them both in, but what the hack, 4 is better than 2, now I can plug in!! LOL

Finally got to the hardtop tonight. YIKES!!!

Holy cow, dirtier than I thought it was, I guess I need to wash it a few more times during the summer. LOL

But honestly, the darn wild fires in Canada this past summer were killers for air quality and haze. We would get up some mornings and have ash on the boat we needed to wash off. The black streaks after a rain were terrible. It was BAD!

I got some work to do!!

Cant wait to see it all done. I have kicked it around doing it howeve cant come up with a design in my mind.

If you don't mind sharing what is the quote to get it done?
 
I got to the fuel tank sending units this afternoon. It has been on my list to do since last year but didn't have the nerve to pull the carpet back.
All 3 tank gauges are erratic and the center tank never showed the proper fuel unless it was full. As it turns out, the center tank sender was replaced at some point in the past. The tank is 24" deep and the replacement sender only went 18" deep. :confused: Yep, that creates a problem trying to get accurate readings...LOL

A new float less unit is on the way along with 2 shorter versions for the port and STBD tank.

Another project off the list!! (almost)

I picked up the chocks from the powder coater yesterday. They do fine work!
Next up is re-installing the platform on Tuesday and getting this 12' table out of my way for the rest of the season. I will have the SeaDek installed before we launch in the spring. Powder coating the chocks, screw heads and rails totaled $150.00. Pretty damn good deal to make it look new. I don't know how they do it so cheap to be honest!
