a few pics of the start of the 2020 season.



Note the scuppers for those considering a 300hp. this is a FULL tank of fuel and Scuppers are still above waterline.

Chris, love the pics! Great work.
So what was your final hole placement for mounting the Zuke? & do you know your prop specs?
Because I like seeing your water pickup, at least one of them, out of the water in the first photo.
Right now, my motor is buried. Ran great but both pickups were in the water. When it was tilted up at the mooring, both water pickups are underwater. I found it a pain to scrub the water pickups when a scum line appears in the warmer months.
Figured I would raise it to where yours sits after I pull it in a couple of weeks.
Thanks.
Stef

Well she’s out for the season. Added another 207hrs (for a total of 400 now) on the Zuke. Absolutely love this combo.

Big project for winter of 20/22—— Rhodan install and full boat rewire

Where did you get the bootstripe? I need to replace mine, as well.

Thanks Gulf. I just ordered the material from a local Sign shop and put it on. He also cut the decals for the Reg Numbers. He made the Reg Numbers reflective, figured every but helps at night.


Ionic 36V Lithium Battery Ordered along with a Stealth 1 AC/DC charger.

the fun starts next week! ~ 12 week lead time on the Rhodan, but hoping to have all the wiring buttoned up WELL before then

Very nice. And nice touch on the reflective numbers. Great idea.

I'll ask the sign company that did my numbers, as well. It looks fantastic!

I ordered the Rhodan 84" shaft, but they said March or April delivery. It's a game changer, for sure.

Again, beautiful boat!

Default SS Lettering

I would suggest calling Al Partin at Regulator to order some new SS lettering. Mine turned out great. Wasn't a ton of $$$.

Also, did you make the transom enclosure yourself? Thinking about doing this.

The transom gate came with the boat. But it’s just simple starboard with a top lip.

As for the regulator name plate , I kinda like it with no name plate. I get asked all the time what make it is. And the year. When I tell people it’s a 2000 Regulator they are always surprised. “Well that makes sense, those are great boats and built to last”
