    Default Next Year's Goodies

    What are you planning to add to the toon for next year? Since many us have put the boats away for a few months, we have some time to dream.

    I expect to add:
    "TheBiminiBuddy" as a forward canopy
    A taller support for the helm seat - tired of using a boat cushion as a "Booster" seat
    Under-Console storage shelf/drawer for galley stuff

    Hey Dan, Denise.......................

    I'm seriously thinking about getting "Big Kahuna" painted. I'm tired of that light color and the lettering and graphics are dated...................We'll see what Diane thinks about this.................... She doesn't know yet...................

    I'm thinking sevral rod holders might be nice to possibly get back into a little fishing. And a 4-blade prop and maybe a second battery. And over the winter I need to educate myself on am MP3 player or an I-Pod as my boat has a connection point to the Clarion Stereo, but no CD player, which I had just converted a lot of favorite old records to for our listening pleasure. At guess this is part of the price of progress. I'd be happy to just stay parallel for a while!

    Hey Danny,

    Great idea! It's might be a nice thing that you don't have a CD player, CD's can take up a lot of space. I have a "Walkman" MP3 player. I think I have over 1500 songs on it already, and it is smaller than most new cell phones.

    My system had a usb port so I can put all of my music on a flash drive and just plug it in.

    I'm planning on installed the depth finder I received for Christmas last year. The lake was so full this last year we never got a chance to beach it, just tied up to my other friends.

    Oh yeah, I might be the captain but the commander makes the decisions when she's on board!

    I have a XM radio that I just pop it out of the truck and put it on the boat, plug it into the boat radio and no matter where we go I get the satellite signal. It's small about 4" long and 2" tall. Plug into the DC plug, set radio to 88.3 and play it thru the boats speakers. Works great for us.

    Hey Daril,

    I have a "pontoon" friend in NJ who does custom graphics. I could hook you up with him if you're interested. He has done many, many boats in his marina.

    Probably just look into replacing the depth finder transponder that we broke.
    Would like to shop more, but...
