    Beautiful ride!!!! Is that an old Obrien wakeboard in the front storage area? I have that one mounted on my wall as it was my first board. Can you surf with that board? How do you plan on setting up the ballasts? I am looking at a really clean 1995 Super Sport and trying to figure out the best way to set up a ballast system. Secondly, do you know a good place to order decals?

    New stuff!

    Got a new headunit that let's you put your iPhone or iPod INSIDE the headunit. Also got a transom remote for it. Had to drill a 3.25" hole in the transom. That was fun with a Dremel tool!



    I also got my sub in and installed my amp. The sub is a DVC alpine type S. I wired it in parallel to drop the impedance down to 2 ohms. The amp is a polk 5000.5.

    I then mounted my fuse block for my upcoming ballast install. Gonna have 6 aerator pumps wired to it.

    Ya it's an old obrien. We tried surfing with it but it isn't buoyant enough. Ballast bags are two 750s in engine compartment and the flyhigh locker/backseat bag in locker that's a 580 bag. Ill have 300 in lead/iron weights in the bow. Go to www.nautiqueparts.com for decals.

    I'm doing an aerator pump system for ballast instead of reversible pumps for these reasons.
    1. Cost
    2. Speed
    3. Ability to run dry
    4. I like watching water drain out the side.
    5. Less amp draw, I gots 1 battery.

    Started my ballast project last night and finished it a few hours ago.

    Here's what happened.

    All this stuff came in from wakemakers. Those guys are awesome.

    I was originally going to make a manifold out of 3/4" T fittings but when I saw them I changed my mind



    So I went to the store and made a manifold out of 1 1/4" PVC. Which is e same size as my one and only thru hull



    What I originally had in my head and what actually would work



    More to follow.

    Big hole in the bottom of my boat



    Picture of the mushroom thru hull



    With the street elbow and ball valve



    Started plumbing hoses. I use a t1200 tsunami pump for fill and a 1" hose. Use t800 for drain and 3/4" hose. I used Y fittings to connect my drain and vent lines. Check valve on vent line.

    Switch housing installed



    Wiring the switches. Wires go from pumps to switch. Then switches are powered through the fuse block I installed earlier.



    Replaced the fuel tank cover



    Pics of vdrive storage with dividers and all hoses/wires ran
