Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Glassed the motorwell and side compartment sides all with 6oz tonight. Then glued the sides of the console boxes in place. Then glued two pieces of 1x2 along the top of the rear bulkhead for the fordeck and a 1x1 14 5/8" up the rear side of the bow compartment bulkhead. With those in place I will be...

USB ports and water don't mix to well! :D
Electricity and water dont mix well.....
But usb is a better standard than cigar lighters imo....
There are times where it is handy, so while I agree it should be properly protected, its a luxury I want to add.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Narfi if you want to go the pole and socket way I believe I still have a set home in NC that you can have for the cost of shipping. I don't remember the brand as they were for the C17 that never got built when I bought my OD18. I will be home from Iowa on Oct. 8 and check then if you are interested...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

I figured out the answer. It's not the manufacture, store or dealers responsibility how your boat is lit if you go out at night or in fog, its yours. The solution is a stainless 2 prong socket that the pole and light slide into when needed. You dont need it installed for daytime operations. Shorelin...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Yes of course led. And yes I'll have lights under the gunnel and in all compartments. But my question is about required navigation lights. Are they required or not? Do I need to have a pole with a 360degree white light or not? Do I need the red and green lights on the bow? If I am required to, then ...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

What lighting is required? The red/green light at the bow and a 360degree one on the stern tall enough to be truely 360 degrees? A pole standing up is kind of ugly, is there other alternatives that are easy and cheap? Edit: Just googled Lund promotional videos since I know there are a lot of them ar...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

@Jayson I decided on 0 Gauge for the battery/alternator so that should be conservative. I decided on 10 gauge for the 'bulk' wire for most of the other stuff which allows 15amps up to 20ft with only 3% drop. I cant think of anything that will use that much power that far away so should also be conse...
