    Subwoofer placement

    I’ll get some photos next time we go get the boat out and post them.

    Subwoofer placement

    I installed a 12" Rockford Fosgate powered subwoofer enclosure under the rear bench seat. Worked great.

    Salt water vs Fresh water?

    You’re engine comes with two anodes - one is the trim tab, bolted to the lower unit above the prop. The other is located on the bottom of you’re motor bracket. You should also have one or two mounted to the rear of your pontoons. Some trailers also have anodes installed, especially if they’re...

    Salt water vs Fresh water?

    The anode protects the other metals on your boat from galvanic corrosion. Without that, your engine and pontoons will begin to corrode. Aluminum anodes can be used in both fresh and salt water. Zinc is saltwater only and magnesium is for freshwater only.

    GPS

    I have the GO5. It has a micro sd slot under the bottom. Kind of a pain to get to. It should come with the C-Map lakes card, which is standard and is a lot more than the base map. I will likely go to the Navionics card in the future, since that’s what I had on my last boat. I think it has more...

    Salt water

    Good advice above - salt water can be deadly to a boat when not handled properly. Flushing the boat and trailer completely when you take it out of the water is a must. Here's a great product I've used for over 15 years. The inside of my Yamahas on my Center Console were perfect after 1400...

    Battery Maintainer Confusion

    I have 2 batteries. I installed a battery maintainer in the boat and connected it to each battery. The plug is at the back, very easy to access. Leave the perko switch off and plug the charger in. Works perfectly. https://www.amazon.com/stores/page/41761129-C47A-48CA-88BE-EF21A3D37255. I...

    Pontoon Front Gate Latch

    The screws are adjustable and can be tightened to prevent the catch from swiveling. Mine fits snug and maintains its alignment.

    Pontoon Front Gate Latch

    At Defender.com. Here's the website: https://www.defender.com/product.jsp?id=4522131 Easy to install. Comes in black, white and stainless steel. Yesterday, the wind was up and we were dodging thunderstorms but never had a problem with the gate releasing. Its also nicer than a fixed...

    Adding an amp and subwoofer

    Generally, the KMC100 is sold only to dealers. It is very similar to the KMC4.

    Snap that gate into position

    Another option.

    Pontoon Front Gate Latch

    Added a magnetic gate latch to my front gate. Now it doesn't bang around at the dock or the restaurant.

    Adding an amp and subwoofer

    The KMC45 has 25 W x 4, which is really not enough to drive 4 6.5" speakers. The KMC5 does not have much more power than the KMC4 - I don't think it justifies the added cost. Here's a link for the KMC4: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-yAXgSVVNutP/p_20646KMC4/Kicker-46KMC4.html Separate amps...

    Adding an amp and subwoofer

    Deke, Here is a link to the KMC45. It is an older unit that has limited capability. Upgrading will be a definite improvement. The KMC4 has all you need to do that, except for amps, which you will want in order to get the sound you're looking for. I installed my sub under my rear bench seat...
