Default Rig is 90% done

And I'm about to try this mofo out somewhere.


Dropped the boat off Friday to get the brackets & rails built and he called Friday evening to say they were done. I went to pick them up and was pretty upset to find that he had welded one of the brackets right in the way of my trilling motor. He needed to grind them off and weld it in the right spot and said he would have it done today. I was pretty pissed but gave him the chance to fix it and he did. He still didn't do everything I asked but I can have someone else make those very minor changes.

Ended up going with 4 of the 50w warm white LED's because I couldn't fit 5 and use the trolling motor. I wanted them to be totally removable and ended up using two "T" shaped rails. One rail has a switch box mounted to it that plugs into a trolling motor outlet. The other one has a connector that runs to the switch box. Fired them up a few minutes ago and was concerned about having a blind spot at the front of the boat and that was not even remotely a problem. Can't wait to get on the water!

Are you able to use the lights and trolling motor at the same time? You mentioned plugging one of the lights into the TM plug so I was just curious. Looks really bright. Good luck with them.

I ran another trolling motor outlet to the front of the boat. I have 2 batteries for the trolling motor, one for the motor and one for the LED's.

Hah! I'm pretty well behaved over here at least. He got a cool pic of the lights in action. I will say I love the room on the G3, that's 2 250lb men on the front of the boat. It was his first time which is pretty obvious by the marks in the middle of the fish.
